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.

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.
