This is not happening by accident. Contrary, with big announcements in the past, the future of any Lynk&Co vehicle is bright. Who wouldn’t by a car with free internet as a standard feature?

Lynk&Co 01 SUV Specs
The Lynk&Co 01 SUV is using the platform from XC40 crossover by Volvo. Both brands have the same parent company, the Chinese corporation Geely. So, there is no surprise for this info. Whatsoever, the SUV has no access to any drivetrain from Swede carmaker. So, the choice was a 1.5-liter three-cylinder unit. However, the XC40 is using a T4 powertrain, which is a 2.0-l 4-cylinder mill. This will be another option for the Lynk&Co 01 SUV, but probably when the crossover arrives in the European market.
