SHANGHAI, April 19, 2017 /CNW/ - Geely Auto Group launches its LYNK & CO global car brand in China with an international auto show debut in Shanghai, and introduces an all-new model - the 03 Concept - a bold and sporty sedan.
Also confirmed in Shanghai is the LYNK & CO 01 as 'production ready'.
Alain Visser, Senior Vice President of LYNK & CO, said:
"Having launched LYNK & CO in Europe just five months ago, we are ready to roll-out our unique brand of connected mobility with a number of new models featuring the world's first digital in-car share button. Our promise of a new dimension of vehicle connectivity and shareability, coupled with a revolutionary approach to buying and ownership, is further strengthened with both free connectivity and lifetime warranties as standard with LYNK & CO."
Executive Vice President of Design, Geely Auto Group, Peter Horbury, said:
"With the 03 Concept, we started with some clear defining ambitions: to look solid, have an imposing presence and to make a striking visual impression. The result is 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."
The 03 Concept has been in development for more than two years, and in keeping with the brand's commitment to doing things differently, is the second model debuted, following the 01 shown in October. The 02 will be revealed in due course, completing a three-car line up when the first LYNK & CO models go on sale later this year.
