Right on cue, Volkswagen has released a teaser image of the 2012 New Midsize Sedan (NMS).

While the company declined to release additional information, they stated the NMS will be sleeker and roomier than the ill-fated Passat. More importantly, the car will built in Tennessee which will allow Volkswagen to sell it for approximately $20,000 - nearly $7,000 less than the Passat.

Expected to look like a Jetta XL, the NMS is a center piece of Volkswagen's plan to sell 10 million vehicles a year by 2018. It remains unclear if the NMS will be able to tackle the Accord and Camry, but we'll get a better idea when the car is officially unveiled on Monday.
