If you’re looking for a classic way to get around Mexico, it doesn’t get any better than the Vocho.
The Mexican form of the VW Bug, the Vocho was one of the most mass produced cars in the country. It seems all of our local friends have owned/driven (or still drive) a Vocho at some point in their life. And you can totally tell why – they look awesome!
First introduced by Germans at an autoshow in Mexico city, Mexico began producing these vehicles themselves in 1961. The legacy came to a halt in June 2003 when the last line of Mexican Vochos rolled off the assembly line.
While Vochos might not be in production anymore, they are still everywhere! They are reliable, easy to repair and super cost effective. Plus they come in any color you could possibly want!
Of course if you’re not into leaving a carbon footprint, there are always alternative modes of transportation…
If we ever find ourselves back to Mexico, you better believe we are picking up a Vocho for ourselves! Or maybe something a bit more spacious…
What do you think of the Vocho? What’s your favorite car you’ve seen abroad?
