Lynk & Co on European road tests before launch date
The Lynk & Co SUV has been spotted testing in European roads which means its arrival in European showrooms is just a year or so away.
This will be the first model from the brand to feature PHEV drivetrain system, thanks to an intensifying technological cooperation with Volvo and the sharing of the innovative Drive-E powertrain.
Production of the first Lynk & Co 01 PHEV for Europe will begin this year, 2019 at Volvo Car Ghent factory in Belgium which is also the manufacturing home of the European Car of the Year 2018, the Volvo XC40, which is based on the Compact Modular Architecture, also shared between Volvo and Lynk & Co.
Lynk & Co’s first 01 PHEV marks the brand’s formal launch in to the new energy sector, with the first performance results confirmed today as 1.7l / 100km fuel consumption (combined cycle) and a pure electric range in excess of 50 km for the 01.
Designed and engineered by an international team in Gothenburg, Sweden, Lynk & Co has a European heart and soul, and a refreshing approach to the automotive business.
