Last of Volkswagen's Trio of City Cars Ceases Production in Europe
Volkswagen has officially ended the production of the up! city car in Europe. This marks the conclusion of an era, as it’s the last of the Volkswagen Group’s trio of city cars to bid adieu. Following the discontinuation of the Skoda Citigo in 2020 and the SEAT Mii about a year later, the up! has now joined them in the history books.
A 12-Year Run for the Iconic up!
The Volkswagen up! had an impressive 12-year run in production, making it one of the longest-serving cars in the German automotive conglomerate’s lineup. Its discontinuation follows the cessation of the GTI hot hatch variant by about 10 months. Notably, all three models in the New Small Family (NSF) lineup were offered as electric vehicles, and although direct replacements aren’t on the immediate horizon, the VW Group has promised a new generation of affordable EVs in the coming years.
