VW MMS Official Sketch

Recommended Posts


On the heels of our latest spy photos, an official sketch of the Volkswagen vehicle known only as NMS has surfaced online. Prototypes of the future Toyota Camry-fighter were last spotted undergoing testing in late January. VW has some pretty ambitious sales goals for the U.S. market in the coming years, with the bulk of those plans centering around the model — the new mid-market sedan, or NMS for short.

The vehicle will be assembled in 2011 at VW’s Chattanooga assembly plant in Tennessee. The new sedan is intended to go head-to-head with the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry. It will fit between the Jetta and Passat in VW’s lineup, and will likely have a starting price of around $20,000.

In contrast to most future vehicle plans, Volkswagen has openly mentioned the NMS and what they hope to accomplish with this vehicle, as well as required amenities. VW has hinted that the new sedan will boast generous legroom, a larger trunk, bigger cup holders, improved interior quality, a six-speed dual clutch transmission, gas and diesel powerplants and the possibility of all-wheel drive.

Initially, engines and transmissions will be manufactured in Mexico – the same ones as found in the New Beetle and Jetta. A previously-spotted test mule – as clearly seen on the paper affixed to the windshield – was powered by VW’s 2.5-liter I5.

In addition to the North American market, VW may be also developing this platform for the Chinese market.

VW’s new Tennessee plant is expected to be up and running by early 2011, so look for the NMS to hit the market sometime after that.

Looks like a VW/Dodge hybrid to me ...

The front fascia has strong '97 Camry cues IMHO, with a VW badge. Also some '10 Taurus also.
