Volkswagen's boxy, air-cooled rear-engine Combi van is finally to go out of production in Mexico, Associated Press (AP) reported, adding that production in Brazil is also likely to end soon. The van was first introduced in Germany in 1950 but the rear engined, air-cooled first and second series versions were eventually replaced in most markets by a rear engined version with water-cooled engine and finally by the Eurovan, an up-to-date design with front-mounted engine.
