Thousand of Volkswagen cars in Mexico’s streets

About 1,000 Volkswagen Beetles drove through the streets of Mexico City showing their love for the classic vehicle.

The 13th annual edition of the Beetle Parade, organized by various fan clubs in the Mexican capital, commemorates the celebration of this popular vehicle.
The “bug,” or “vocho,” as the Beetle was nicknamed, debuted in 1938.

With its recognizable design and inexpensive price, the car became a success story over subsequent decades and was one of the top-selling models of all time, despite its place in popular culture, sales of the Beetle had been lackluster in recent years. The German automaker announced in 2018 that the Beetle would go extinct.
