In the U.S. the Beetle engine could no longer meet increasingly restrictive emission standards and imports halted after 1979. A four door version would have been nice. A main reason that the air cooled engine VW hung on in the South American / Mexican markets was less restrictive exhaust emission standards and for its use as a taxi. The sedan finally met its demise in those markets when the governments decreed that taxis must have four doors for passenger use.
