Company's first-ever offering promises hybrid thrift, industry-first car-sharing tech and Swedish safety.
The front end of the Lynk & Co 01 has a layered look that might not appeal to everyone.
The Lynk & Co 01 is promised to hit Chinese roads later this year.
Lynk & Co is still working out the particulars of its "lifetime warranty" promise.
Bubble-top headlamps, all the better to see potential car-sharers with.
Inverted L-shaped headlamps may become a Lynk & Co design trademark.
There's more than hint of Kia Sportage in the 01's appearance, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.
For a brand-new automaker, Lynk & Co already seems to have its family styling cues nailed down.
The 01 is expected to arrive powered by a 1.5-liter gas engine paired with an electric motor assist.
The 01 will come one way: Fully loaded, with no options outside of color choice.
The 01 will come standard with built-in carsharing technology which uses app-based e-keys.
Eventually, a plug-in hybrid and pure-electric 01 are expected.
Apparently the future of carsharing and car ownership is moody.
Lynk & Co hopes to radically overhaul today's car-selling model, including small company-owned stores and pop-ups, no haggle pricing and service pick-up and delivery.
The 01 is scheduled to go on sale in its home Chinese market later this year and hit the market in the US and Europe about a year later.
