Spy Shots showing the Lynk & Co 01 SUV testing in China. Lynk & Co is a new brand under Geely, set to compete with the likes of Toyota and Volkswagen. It will be aimed at the young, with fancy electronics, an AirBNB-like share function, and shiploads of apps to download. Their first car is called the 01 and will hit the Chinese car market in Q4 2017.
Geely launched Lynk & Co in Sweden last night and we have the first photos of their first SUV; imaginatively called the 01, and formerly known by its code name CX11. The Link & Co 01 has become a very good looking car. The lights, hood, and grille give it a very sporty stance. And there was more: they also had a racy four-door sedan concept car on display.
New Spy Shots of the upcoming Lynk & Co SUV, code named the C11. Lynk & Co, not to be confused with Lincoln, is a new brand under Geely Auto. It will be positioned between Geely and Volvo. It will compete against “mainstream” brands such as Ford, Hyundai, Toyota and Volkswagen. The brand will officially debut tomorrow in Sweden, where they will show a concept car.
New news about Geely’s fuzzy new LYNK & CO brand, not to be confused with Ford’s Lincoln brand. The Chinese name is Lingke (凌克) a meaningless translation of LYNK. The & CO part of the name has no translation in Chinese. As for the English name, Geely has also registered a “K by Geely” trademark, with the K referring to the K in LINK.
Just when Geely has finally killed off all its wuzzy sub-brands (GLEagle and the lot) they are launching a brand new brand. Some companies never learn. The new brand has a crazy name: LYNK & CO. In Capitals. The brand will be positioned between Geely and Volvo.
