It feels the end for the Volkswagen Beetle

It feels the end for the Volkswagen BeetleA beastly life is not, after all, eternal: this week at the Geneva Motor Show edition 2018, Volkswagen has confirmed that the present generation of the Beetle will be the last. The news was unveiled by Frank Welsch, head of research and development at Volkswagen.

Note that the very first Beetle was born in 1938. In 1998, Volkswagen made a wink to its past by marketing the New Beetle. In 2011, the German manufacturer launched a new generation of the model and simply called it “Beetle”.

This new information contradicts what was said last November by Volkswagen’s big boss, Herbert Diess, who claimed that an electric version of the model could see the light of day.

Let’s be honest, removal of the ladybug is not a surprise. The subject had been discussed for months or even years. The opportunity also to remember that it will not be the first time that the doyenne Volkswagen (born in 1938) bows out. Although marketed until 2003 in Mexico, the first Cox disappeared from Europe in 1978. It returned in 1998 on the shape of the New Beetle. If 2020 will spell the death knell of the Ladybug, should we hope for its return in 2040?
