Lynk & Co 03 sedan: the first official photos of the production versionJuly 30, 2018
Chinese concern Geely in cooperation with Volvo recently created a joint brand Lynk & Co. In the line of the new company there are already two crossover cars and the first sedan is being prepared, the serial version of which has already been completely revealed.
Not so long ago we admired the stylish looking of the crossover Lynk & Co 03, later another 02 cross was presented, and already now the company teases car enthusiasts with photos of the sedan 03. The model will be available by the end of the year, and will be available both in China and in Europe (production will be arranged at the Volvo plant).
Lynk & Co is a joint venture between Geely and Volvo, whose target audience is the younger generation. First of all, the cars of this brand stand out for their design with non-traditional solutions.
Judging by the presented photos, the car is almost identical to the eponymous concept presented earlier this year. The only difference that we managed to consider is another front bumper and a rear spoiler in black. Also, experts suggest that the company could present photos of the “sport” version, and the basic modification will fully comply with the concept.
According to preliminary data, the length of the sedan Lynk & Co 03 is 4 639 mm, width – 1 840 mm, height – 1,460 mm, wheelbase size is 2,730 mm. In all likelihood, the sedan will be built on the basis of the new CMA platform, also developed by the joint efforts of the two companies, and already used on the crossovers of Lynk & Co and the Volvo XC40.
Under the hood of the sedan, you can see a 1.5-liter turbo engine with a maximum output of up to 156 horsepower. A similar motor is installed on other models of the brand, but the crossovers are also equipped with a 179-horsepower version of a 1.5-liter engine and a turbo-four Volvo 2.0 with a return of 190 hp.
Coupled with the engine will be offered a six-speed manual transmission, or a robotic transmission for seven steps. In addition, a hybrid modification with a total capacity of up to 256 horsepower can be presented later.
In Europe, sales of Lynk & Co cars can begin as early as 2020.
