VW's last Beetle to leave factory this week

Posted: Updated:

(CNN) -- It's the end of the road for the Volkswagen Beetle.

After roughly seven decades of production, the last Beetles that VW will produce are set to roll off the assembly line in Puebla, Mexico on Wednesday.

The company will celebrate the Beetle's discontinuation with a ceremony at the factory. 

The freed-up factory space will be used to produce a new compact SUV intended for the North American market.
