Mexico: VW Bug - A Trip to Beetle Paradise

Mexico: VW Bug - A Trip to Beetle Paradise

The German automaker Volkswagen (VW) produced its Type 1 "Beetle" from 1938 until 2003. This classic program documents the days when one out of every three cars built in Mexico was a VW. Host Mariana Rodriguez takes viewers to a dealership where all the features of the VW bugs are described; also to a factory where we get to witness the Beetle's construction. As we discover, Beetles were very popular as taxicabs in Mexico and became ubiquitous throughout the country; however, because the cars no longer met emissions standards, which was especially important for Mexico City, the decision to end production had to be made and the last Beetle was produced in Puebla, Mexico in mid-2003. To this day the Beetle remains the world's best-selling car design. Produced by Jorge Cordova and Sandra Barsalini. 01/07DE IJSCA 30 min.
