Volkswagen to retire Kombi campervan

Volkswagen has announced that it will stop producing its Type 2 Kombi campervan after a limited Final Edition run of 600 vehicles.

First produced in 1957, the Kombi was manufactured in both Europe and South America, however its European plant in Hanover, Germany, stopped producing the campervan in 1979.

Production continued in Brazil and the market for it remained strong until recent years – making it the longest produced campervan model in automotive history.

The Final Edition VW Kombi will feature two tone white and blue bodywork with white wheel caps, a blue fabric and vinyl interior, retro style instrument dials and tinted windows. Owners will also receive a Volkswagen certificate of authenticity.

Although the Kombi’s life has reached its end, there are plenty of other campervan models on sale in the UK and you can get a great campervan insurance deal with Coast.
