The German automaker brought out Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam for the big reveal. Volkswagen has invested heavily in the state in recent years. Volkswagen said in a news release Monday that it will expand its plant in Chattanooga and create 1,000 jobs there as the factory gears up for electric vehicle production beginning in 2022.

The Passat is completely re-styled. "We kept what customers told us they loved, and we improved what they did not," said Volkswagen America President Scott Keogh. 

The car will hit dealerships this summer in the U.S. 

Volkswagen also announced they'd be the partner for U.S. Soccer.
