New Chinese Automaker Teases its First Car

Chinese automaker Geely, which owns Volvo, has teased the first model for its upcoming new brand.

The company, which is called Lynk & Co, is expected to head to Europe and the U.S. in the future after launching in China. It has teased what appears to be a crossover, which Lynk & Co promises will be the “most connected car to date.”

“With Lynk & Co, we have created something bigger than just a car. We have created a digital platform for new thinking, for sharing and for collaboration, where only the imagination and creativity of all the bright minds out there will set the limits for how we can improve the use of cars and the experience of mobility,” said David Green, CDO, Lynk & Co.
