It is to be known that though the Beetle was first conceived of in the 1930s as a 'car for everyone', the widespread production could not be done until after World War II. The idea of Beetle was of Adolf Hitler and was designed by Ferdinand Porsche.
Though the car gained popularity globally, the production was stopped. Later in 1997, Volkswagen relaunched the New Beetle, but it failed to woo customers. According to the information, the factory in Puebla manufactured some 1.7 million 'New Beetles' between the vehicle’s redesign in 1997 and 2019.
