The Australian sales company "Volkswagen (W. A.) Pty. Ltd." is renamed "Volkswagen (Sales) Pty. Ltd.", and the "Volkswagen Distributors Pty. Ltd." is renamed "Volkswagen (Services) Pty. Ltd." Volkswagen Australasia also tries to augment exports to Southeast Asian and South Pacific countries. Poor sales and high production costs forces Volkswagen to stop production in Australia in 1968 and Volkswagen Australasia is renamed "Motor Producers Limited" and return to assembling cars from imported kits.
