Volkswagen will finish production of the legendary Beetle next year

Volkswagen finally ended the production of its iconic Beetle and ended an 80-year reign for a car that began under Hitler's Third Reich, became a staple of popular culture in the 1960s and 1970s, before it was revived with an updated model in 1997 ,

The German automaker said the last vehicle would be manufactured in Mexico next year, in the only factory still manufacturing the car.

The company said the decision would allow it to focus on other models, including the electric car portfolio

Hinrich Woebcken, Managing Director of the Volkswagen Group of America, said: "The loss of the Beetle after three generations, in almost seven decades, will provoke a wealth of emotions from the beetle's many fans."

At its peak, it sold more than a million cars a day, fueled by Herbie's love-bugs' theatrical exploits.
