About a year ago, we went to the international car launch of LYNK & CO in Berlin, Germany. They are now releasing their first car in China, the Model 01 (shown in the gallery).
Back in October, we covered the LYNK & CO launch in Berlin for the reveal of their Model 01; that will hit the market later this year, starting in China followed by Europe and USA in 2019. Today at the Shanghai International Auto Show, they are taking it one step closer to launch by unveiling the all-new 03 concept. A bold, mid-size and sporty sedan with a classic look that will feature free connectivity and lifetime product warranty for all the other cars including this concept.
This model, as well as all the following LYNK & CO cars, is based around connectivity. Customers will find a range of connected technologies on offer in the vehicles, all aimed at making life easier. All models come with a large central touchscreen and telematics systems that are always connected to the internet and the car’s own cloud. The LYNK & CO brand will also provide its users with personalized services, an open API, unrivalled connectivity with vehicle sharing at its heart, e-commerce, and the first dedicated app store for cars.
Over the course of the next 12 to 24 months, a new range of premium, state-of-the-art cars at the most accessible of price points will be introduced, with the aim of challenging and redesigning the way in which automotive products are bought, owned and consumed across the world. The key aim of LYNK & CO is to enrich and simplify vehicle ownership through connectivity, e-commerce and by addressing the needs and preferences of a new global generation of customers.
We started with some clear defining ambitions: to look solid, have an imposing presence and to make a striking visual impression. The result is the 03 Concept – our first LYNK & CO sedan – which encapsulates muscular solid volumes, our unique brand elements and intricate, high-tech details resulting in a design that is bold and sporty, says Peter Horbury, Executive Vice President of Design, Geely Auto Group.
