Bring those tissues out, this one’s going to give you all sorts of warm, fuzzy feelings.

After announcing the end of its production, Volkswagen has produced a final tribute video for the iconic Beetle and it’s more touching than you’d expect.

The animated film follows the story of a boy whose major life events – from childhood, all the way to a senior age – were accompanied by the Volkswagen Beetle.

Adding more sentimental value to the video was the rendition of “Let it Be” – perhaps Volkswagen’s way of saying “let the past, be the past” as Volkswagen charges into a new decade (and era) of electrification.

At the end of the video, there was even a cameo appearance by what seems like the front end of the new all-electric ID.3 with 550km of pure electric driving range. It was also reported that Volkswagen’s new generation of the “people’s car” will also feature a hotter “R version”.
