First drive review of the Lynk & Co 01 PHEV car
What is it? It’s no secret that Lynk & Co will arrive in Europe within the next year, but up to now we have only experienced drivetrain setups unique to the Chinese market. This car while tested here in Chinese spec will be Europe’s launch model; a PHEV utilising a three cylinder petrol engine developed in collaboration with Volvo. While collaboration between Volvo and its Chinese owners Geely is very much in the genesis of this brand the team got a clean sheet of paper, with no brand heritage hang-ups. The result while made in China has a distinct European feel about it, but it is certainly not just a cheaper Volvo. Although it shares the CMA platform with the XC40 the 01 is bigger and has a distinct feel.
