Food for Thought:

The original VW Beetle, developed in the 1930s, made a journey from a product identified with Adolf Hitler to a symbol of Germany’s rebirth as a democratic, industrial powerhouse after World War Two. In the 1960s, the Beetle was a small-is-beautiful icon of the postwar baby boom generation. Volkswagen discontinued U.S. sales of the “bug” in 1979, but continued production for Mexico and Latin America.

In a statement announcing the end of the Beetle, Hinrich Woebcken, head of Volkswagen of America, said that as the company ramps up its electrification strategy, there are no plans to replace the Beetle. However, his statement did not rule that out someday. He noted the company’s I.D. Buzz, a prototype for a 21st Century reincarnation of the microbus. The automaker has said it intends to put a vehicle similar to the I.D. Buzz into production as an electric vehicle.

    • @xButterflyKisses87x I'm 10 years older than you... and be for you were born, like the late 70s, early 80s, on road trips, my older sister and I ended with many bruises and soreness from playing SLUG BUG... see, if you saw a vw beetle, you'd yell SLUG BUG while punching the other in the arm or shoulder, and you'd say the color of it and point to it. Silky, I know.

  • Many were been made in Mexico.
