Volkswagen Kombi Van Ending Production in Brazil After 56-Year Run

It’s the end of yet another era. The iconic Volkswagen Kombi, better known to  some as the Volkswagen Bus is going out of production in Brazil after a 56-year production run. As with the original Beetle, VW is sending the Bus out in style, with  the limited-edition Volkswagen Kombi Last Edition, which is designed to celebrate the legendary vehicle’s history.

Limited to just 600 units, the VW Kombi Last  Edition comes nostalgia-filled with a two-tone blue and white paint job,  whitewall tires, and matching white wheel caps. Other unique Kombi Last Edition  exterior touches include a blue upper grille and headlight trim, as well as “’56  anos – Kombi Last Edition” decals on the side and rear of the Bus.

Inside, the Volkswagen Kombi Last Edition gets blue and white vinyl  upholstery and trim, and matching blue curtains on the side and rear windows.  Each Kombi Last Edition is then topped off with a number identification plaque  mounted on the dash.

Unlike the air-cooled Kombis of yesteryear, the Volkswagen Bus is going out  of production with a water-cooled 77-hp 1.4-liter I-4 in its rear engine bay,  paired with a four-speed manual. As we reported late last year, the VW Kombi is  ending production due to more stringent Brazilian crash test regulations.
