Volkswagen AG has released this first design sketch of a new mid-sized sedan planned to reach market by 2012.

News of the new Passat replacement model was released back in July last year when VW announced the selection of Chattanooga, Tenn. as the location for its new U.S. production facility.

Currently under construction the Chattanooga facility which opens in 2011 plans to build 150,000 units per year including this mid-sized sedan that will be slightly larger than the Passat. The new model is expected to be mostly sold in North America.
