Photographers have snapped the first images of a long-wheelbase Lynk & Co 01, ahead of an anticipated reveal later this year.

Essentially a stretched version of the 01 in the same way the Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace is a long-wheelbase version of the Tiguan, the Lynk & Co 01 'L' will feature enhanced rear passenger space thanks to the extra distance between the axles, along with a seven-seat option.

This prototype indicates there could be some minor design changes, too, namely the increased rear overhang that could spell unique treatments to the bumper and glasshouse.

Beyond the physical changes, the 01 L should carryover the standard model's engine options and cabin layout, meaning the long-wheelbase version should offer a range of turbocharged petrol engines and plug-in hybrid options, shared with the wider Lynk & Co range and the related Volvo XC40.

Also expect a high level of available customisation thanks to a wide range of colour and trim options, along with an online-connected infotainment system.

Further details should come to light when the Lynk & Co 01 L is officially revealed, anticipated to be scheduled for late this year.
