Geely has announced the launch of a new brand of electrified and connected cars Lynk & Co.

It was designed and engineered in Sweden and is based on Volvo’s Compact Modular Architecture (CMA).

CMA was developed by Volvo for new plug-in models like the new generation 40 series concepts, and the new plug-in XC40 T5 scheduled for 2017.

Every Lynk & Co model is to be electrified, and the first, called the 01, is to be a utility vehicle available next year in China, followed by the Europe and US.

An interesting new approach in marketing and distribution for Lynk & Co is to make “direct interaction between manufacturer and consumer”, which reminds us of Tesla’s direct sales model, and offers¬†“fully equipped fixed-price collections” instead of set of trim levels.
