Geely’s Lynk & Co Teases Mysterious First Model

Lynk & Co, the mysterious mobility company from Geely, the parent company of Volvo, has released two teaser images of its first model ahead of a world debut on October 20.

Details about the model are limited but it is thought to be based around Volvo’s Compact Modular Architecture and based on these teasers, appears to be a small crossover. At the front, we can see a high fascia with a bulging headlight looking somewhat familiar to those of the Alfa Romeo 4C.

The rear end then appears to be sporting a small roof-mounted lip spoiler and a steeply raked window.

While details about the vehicle’s design are hard to pinpoint, the company itself has ambitious targets for the car, calling it “the most connected car to date” that will help push Lynk & Co to “the limits of the car industry”.

According to Lynk & Co senior vice president Alain Visser, “In the car industry, for a century we have been so preoccupied by refining our product and production processes that we really haven’t looked beyond the trees and asked ourselves whether this is really the answer to people’s needs. To a large extent we have ignored the difference between the car as a mechanical product and the comprehensive experience.

“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,” he said.

    ummm… still looks like a car.

    Gotta hand it to ‘some people’ though. Struggle to think for themselves, so they buy companies that do.

    If they are so concern about connectivity, why they do not sell a cell phone?

      You’ve forgotten that connectivity was originally about physically meeting other people. Cars did help facilitate that, although physically meeting people has fallen out of fashion.
