Volkswagen will unveil an unnamed new midsize sedan (dubbed NMS) at the 2011 North American International Auto Show in Detroit next week. The carmaker posted a photo of the cloaked NMS on its Web site announcing the January 10 reveal date.

Although VW has teased sketches of the NMS, little is known about the concept except that it will be built in Tennessee. The car is likely to be an update for Volkwagen's Passat model. Automotive News reported that the carmaker will also debut a hybrid concept at the Detroit show.
