Volkswagen Kombi: The end of the road

The Volkswagen T1, better known as the Kombi, has been on the world's roads since 1950 and became one of the symbols of an easy-going, simple way of life in the following decades.

The vehicle is now only built in Brazil where it is still used by thousands of small businesses, despite its simple design and functional performance.

But as Wyre Davies reports from Sao Paulo, Volkswagen is to stop making the Kombi and a motoring era is coming to an end.
