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 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.
