Volkswagen Passat: a close approach in America

At the outset, let me say at once that he is not the seductive Passat CC, whose days are counted, but rather sedans and wagons of old world style. In summary, say that the Volkswagen Passat Europeenne be replaced in America by attributed exclusively to this market release.

No more rumors

Until now, we had right of rumors or has many hypotheses regarding the replacement of Volkswagen Passat, including the North American automotive chessboard. But this time is good, since the manufacturer has to present a new sketch, which announces the arrival of a sedan intermediate category, whose name is not yet announced and will be assembled at our neighbors to the south, to the assembly plant in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

The latter has already need more than one billion U.S. dollars in investment and its maximum production capacity is estimated at 150,000 units. At Volkswagen, we hope to sell 100,000 units of the latter. To monetize these facilities, it is clear that more than one model will be assembled in this ultra modern and versatile plant.

Approach has Americaine

This future sedan that is currently recognized as the 'New Mid-size Sedan "(NMS) should be slightly longer than the current and receive a small visual approach answering the tastes of American model.

With production costs will be significantly lower than in Germany, the intermediate sedan will be offered a much more competitive price, which will allow it to better cope with tenors of this segment, such as Camry, Accord and other sedans.

The production of the 'New Mid-size Sedan' Volkswagen is to start in 2011.
