Volkswagen Beetle Final Edition: The end of an era
September 30 2018,
Volkswagen will be saying goodbye to the Beetle in 2019 with the launch of the Final Edition. As the name implies, the Final Edition Beetle will be the last production run of one of the most iconic vehicles in history.
“The loss of the Beetle after three generations, over nearly seven decades, will evoke a host of emotions from the Beetle’s many devoted fans,” said Hinrich J. Woebcken, President and CEO, Volkswagen Group of America, Inc.
“As we move to being a full-line, family-focused automaker in the U.S. and ramp up our electrification strategy with the MEB platform, there are no immediate plans to replace it. But as we have seen with the I.D. BUZZ—which is the modern and practical interpretation of the legendary Bus—I would also say, ‘Never say never.’ We’re excited to kick off a year of celebrating one of the true icons of the automotive world, with a series of events that will culminate in the end of production in Puebla in July 2019.”
Both the 2019 Final Edition Coupe and Final Edition Convertible will be powered by a 2.0-liter TSI engine which delivers 174 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed auto gearbox is standard.
