The German auto-maker Volkswagen will be stopping the production of its classic Beetle July next year. The Beetle was Volkswagen’s first car make, with a start in 1938. At the time, Adolf Hitler, ruler of Nazi Germany, told car-making factories in the country to make an affordable car for the German people. During World War II, the Beetle was adapted as an amphibian military car. Over the years, the Beetle was once the symbol of pop culture, and one of the most long-lasting and best-selling cars, with global sales reaching 22.7 million. However, sales of the Beetle has slumped recently, and so Volkswagen is stopping production of this model to invest in the huge electric car market.
