Volkswagen releases (vague) details on US-built NMS


Volkswagen has presented their plans for their forthcoming plant in Chattanooga, Tennessee to a delegation 50-strong from the state in a meeting last week in Berlin. Among the attendees were the Governor of Tennessee Phil Bredesen, the Mayor of Chattanooga, Ron Littlefield, as well as media from the city.

Volkswagen is eager to keep their plans a secret for as long as possible, offering up only vague details on a planned model that will be built at the plant. A list of market requirements were outlined for the Jetta/Passat replacement in North America codenamed "NMS" (for New Midsize Sedan) during the meeting. Some of the elements that must be met according to Volkswagen are legroom, cupholders, trunk space, premium audio, among other things. From the sound of it, this car is going to be massive, just how Americans like it, I guess? Anyway, Volkswagen also outlined some of the NMS's attributes which include a variety of FSI and TDI engines, DSG, and driving dynamics.

The plant is due to start churning out cars in 2011 with the NMS debuting at the 2010 Detroit Auto Show. Volkswagen hopes to build over 150,000 each year.

A more detailed plan after the jump.

I have the feeling that VW is working on the NMS to be a Toyota killer - translated - means a car that will remind us of a Toyota. BLAH.

I hope VW realizes what kind of cars that MADE VW in America. Simple affordable, practical cars that had a sense of whimsical about them.
Please do something other than a Toyota - make it cool.

It won't be a TOYota, VW has brakes and gas pedals, and steering that WORKS! TOYota is a killer something like 52 now due to that TOYota "quality". If it ain't GERMAN, it ain't a car.

The first Volkswagen was actually designed by the already renowned Ferdinand Porsche, with the development of the chassis by Erwin Komenda.
