Shanghai VW are reportedly working on another secret car, possibly a ‘New Midsize Sedan’ or NMS. The car is expected to replace the VW Passat Lingyu in China by 2010, and will also go on sale in the USA. The car is planned to be the same size as the currenty Toyota Camry, but at the usual VW price.
VW are planning to build a new production plant in Chattanooga, USA which will produce the NMS by 2011, which could lead to Chinese made VW NMS’ models being sold in the US for a year.
The Chinese press were unable to get an official comment from Shanghai VW on the NMS project, however, last year Shanghai VW and VW came to an agreement that Shanghai VW would be responsible for developing a new vehicle body including exterior and interior parts.
