German car manufacturer Volkswagen will cease global production of its iconic Beetle after nearly seven decades of US sales, the company’s American unit announced.

In a statement issued on Thursday, Volkswagen Group of America said global production of the “Bug” car would end in July 2019 and announced two final edition models.

“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,” CEO of the unit, Hinrich Woebcken, said.

While there are “no immediate plans to replace it”, Woebcken added: “I would also say, never say never.”

The Beetle was introduced in Nazi Germany in 1938, after Adolf Hitler had asked automotive engineer Ferdinand Porsche to design a people’s car (Volkswagen in German).
