A new model of the brand was presented at a special event in Amsterdam.
Crossover Lynk & Co 02 added to the line of the Chinese brand, which already has an off-road 01 of a larger size and a 03 sedan. The model features an electrified power plant, compact dimensions and two-tone color options.
In Lynk & Co they say that cross-country 02 will be produced in Europe for Europe, and its customers should be young people who lead an active lifestyle. “Athletic, adventurous, dynamic, cocky, confident and cheerful – 02 has taken center stage in our brand,” said the chief designer of the company Andreas Nilsson.
The first European sales center of the brand was opened in Amsterdam. Then come the stores in Barcelona, Berlin, Brussels and London – all in the central fashionable neighborhoods. The manufacturer characterizes the sales centers as “easy-to-find, friendly and fun brand-boutiques”.
Buyers of cars Lynk & Co get access to a whole arsenal of technologies, including the share function, wireless charging and specialized application store. By analogy with other models, 02 has a large touch screen, advanced telecommunication systems with a permanent connection to the web and even a private cloud.
