The Lamando, built by Shanghai Volkswagen (SVW), is the production version of the Volkswagen NMC (New Midsize Coupe) concept unveiled at the 2014 Beijing Motor Show. Slotted between the Lavida and Passat (with its variants, the Magotan and CC), the four door sport sedan is based on VW’s MQB platform. It was debuted at the 2014 Chengdu Motor show, rolled off SVW’s production line in Ningbo, Zhejiang, on Dec. 27, 2014, and hit showrooms on January 9, 2015. Upon release, three engine options were provided: a 1.8TSI and two variants of the 1.4TSI (for 330TSI, 280TSI, and 230TSI models). Spy shots reveal that SVW may launch 380TSI models, which will get an EA888 2.0TSI engine.

As deliveries started, SVW planned an annual output of 120,000 units of the Lamando. In the first three months of 2015, 21,658 units were sold. To promote it, SVW sponsored the hit TV show "Running Man," in which the Lamando was the official ride.

The name "Lamando" comes from the Spanish word "Mandar," which means "to lead," "to command."
