Lynk&Co 03: zhongrui car spy.


What it is: the Lynk&Co 03 concept is close to the production version, which was first previewed in April last year by the newly formed geely subsidiary with the name Lincoln bait. Some external elements of the concept have been modified for production, such as larger side-mirrors and rear bumpers with low installation reflectors. The double exhaust pipe protrudes under the bumper and now incorporates a wide strip that seems to hold the headlights. The front of 03 is a positive amphibian, with a rough and inelegant profile, and the back is as bland as an envelope binder. Clearly, Lynk&Co will not affect geely’s Volvo as a design leader. Still, we haven’t forgotten about it, because the average compact car has billions of dollars in support for a remarkable business plan.
Why is important: zhejiang geely holding group is a private enterprise group in China, which owns Volvo, the us-based flying car company Terrafugia, the former British company is London black cabs and lotus most of the company as well as car sharing service in the domestic market. Lynk&Co may fail miserably, and geely won’t even sway. Still, the company has a big bet on Lynk&Co, which plans to mix the car with two crossover vehicles, which are labeled 01 and 02. The idea is to use a subscription leasing program, with no dealers, unlimited warranty to attract young urban americans, based on application services and price reductions. Consider Lynk&Co for modern China’s Saturn.

Platform: Volvo’s compact modular architecture (CMA) is the reason for geely’s initial purchase of Swedish car manufacturers, which supported the XC40 crossover in 2019. This is a solid platform to meet the most stringent impact test requirements of any market. If Lynk&Co 03 rides on an outdated geely chassis, it doesn’t have any credibility.
Powertrain: the CMA platform can use three – and four-cylinder turbocharged engines, as well as hybrid, plug-in hybrid and battery electric options. It is expected that 03 will be a hybrid, and other Volvo engineering powertrains will follow.
Competition: Chevrolet cruze, ford focus, Honda civic, nissan sentra.
Expected arrival and price: expected in 2020 and beyond. It will be available in China and Europe as soon as possible. Geely hopes to launch a crossover in San Francisco, with 02 crossover and 03 cars coming in second. For now, the details of the lease or order price and how Lynk&Co’s plant’s own brand strategy will play out is a matter of speculation. Or, as with many other Chinese carmakers, it may never happen.
