Lynk&Co 03 Images Finally Surface

JUL 20 2018 BY MARK KANE 4

Chinese company Lynk & Co (owned by Geely) revealed the first official images of its new 03 pre-production model in camouflage.

It’s a four-door saloon, based on the Volvo’s Compact Modular Architecture (CMA) that will be available in ICE and PHEV versions. The plug-in hybrid is expected to have 40 miles (64 km) of all-electric range. There is also a chance for an all-electric version, but that would come several years from now.

Despite traditional exterior shape, the Lynk & Co 03 takes modern approach – large touchscreens, internet connectivity and purchase contracts for few years gives us glimpses of what to expect.

“Lynk&Co’s models feature highly connected technology, so the 03 is expected to follow suit and come with large touchscreens that offer internet connectivity. The 03 could also get a share button, as introduced in the 01, that allows other users to access the car with a temporary digital key sent to their smartphone.”

“When it goes on sale, the 03 will be offered for purchase or acquired via a contract. Unlike PCP deals, Lynk&Co’s contracts are short term, like those used to purchase smartphones. Most of the car’s sales are expected to come from this type of deal.”

First sales will begin in China and then probably over in Europe soon after.

Another BMW 3 fighter? Wonder why they chose the “03” moniker. Couldn’t be to copy Tesla and BMW could it?

Lynk & Co is not a luxury brand. Geely has Volvo to compete against BMW. Lynk & Co is a premium brand like Buick, Acura, etc.

I think BMW or Volvo are premium brands, not luxury. A 3 Series or C Class, is not luxury. A Superb or Talisman in the same price is more luxury than them. Link&Co I think will be compite against Renault, Peugeot, Opel, Skoda, Hyundai or VW.

Interesting… Well have to see how many boxes it ticks on my list of dream features for a PHEV… A wagon/estate body style would be a big first step 🙂
