The Matchbox Volkswagen Beetle Taxi somehow looks very similar to the Mexico City Taxi.
In Mexico, the little green and white beetle is called el vocho has been running in the city for over 50 years, but this will soon become the history.
The Mexican government wanted to replace them with more modern, fuel-efficient vehicles. The green-friendly government has been proactive in trying to cut down on smothering smog and high ozone levels with such plans as growing rooftop gardens and limiting the number of cars on the road.
The ministry's recent decision to rid the city of all cars older than 10 years by 2012 is a blow to the capital's 20 million inhabitants who rely on some 100,000 taxis, 75,000 of which are older than 10 years and 80 percent of which are Beetle, according to ministry records.
At the end of 2012, there will be no more Beetle Taxi in the country.
