Lynk & Co, the new and mysterious mobility auto brand owned by China’s Geely – the parent of Volvo – has already started the teasing game for their first model, which should be revealed on October 20.
There’s a world debut already lined for a few days from now and we still don’t know a great deal about this new automotive brand set up by the Chinese company – which is impressive in this day and age. Details are still scarce but the fact that Lynk & Co has been setup with the headquarters next to Volvo is showing a measure of relationship with the Swedish manufacturer. This is why the model is believed to be using the new Compact Modular Architecture and by the looks of the teaser images we could be dealing with a small crossover – something that might go against the second generation Mini Countryman.
At the front, all we can see is a high front end adorned with a bulging headlight looking rather familiar. The rear seems to house a small roof-mounted lip spoiler and a racked window. It appears the company is not only calling it “the future of mobility”, but also “the most connected car to date”. “In the car industry, for a century we have been so preoccupied by refining our product and production processes. Time has changed. We live in the connected world and in that world, the heart of a car is not the engine. It’s the connectivity,” added Lynk & Co senior vice president Alain Visser.
