New Chinese automotive brand Lynk & Co has revealed their second vehicle, the 03 Concept ahead of the Shanghai Motor Show. Along with previewing the brand’s first sedan, the 03 is also being leveraged to showcase the brand’s service ideas, which include lifetime warranties.
From a visual perspective, the 03 Concept looks very similar to the 01 crossover, which Lynk & Co. debuted in October at an event in Berlin. The 03 is classified as a compact sedan, so it is smaller than the 01 and appears to have a more modest interior.
Perhaps the bigger news with this reveal is the level of services that will come with Lynk & Co products. Lynk & Co is saying its vehicles will come standard with lifetime warranties and free connectivity features, although said connectivity has yet to be detailed.
Additionally, Lynk & Co products will come with a button on the dash that will enable owners to share their car with others. The company is also planning to launch the brand with a subscription based car sharing service.
Lynk & Co is supposed to launch in China towards the end of this year, with a launch in Europe and the U.S. in 2019. Originally Lynk & Co had said it planned to launch in Europe and the U.S. in 2018, but has since pushed that back.
Lynk & Co is owned by Zhejiang Geely Holding Group, which also owns Volvo. Many of Lynk’s products are expected to leverage the same platforms utilized by Volvo products.
