Join­ing Lynk

Wheels (Australia) - - First Drives -

Geely-owned but Swedish-based Lynk & Co’s re­cently revealed 02 small SUV has much in com­mon with the XC40, shar­ing its CMA plat­form and other com­po­nents, as well as a Bel­gian pro­duc­tion fa­cil­ity. No in­te­rior or body parts are in­ter­change­able, how­ever Volvo’s 1.5-litre three­cylin­der tur­bopetrol engine and seven-speed du­al­clutch trans­mis­sion pow­er­train will be, with hy­brid and ful­l­elec­tric ver­sions also in the pipe­line. The 02 will be po­si­tioned be­tween an ex­pected fu­ture Xc40-de­rived Geely cross­over for the Chi­nese mar­ket and the pre­mium Volvo prod­uct.
