Volvo buys into Lynk & Co, sets up technology sharing joint venture with Geely parent

Volvo Cars has bought into Lynk & Co, its nascent sister brand, and will also setup a 50/50 technology partnership company with the Geely brand, under the larger Geely Holdings umbrella. The Swedish brand will take a "significant minority shareholding" in Lynk & Co owing, primarily, to the fact that the new brand will use platforms, drivetrains and technologies developed by Volvo.

This latest GLE prototype wears roughly the same amount of camouflage as the non-AMG vehicle spotted in March this year. The most obvious of difference between the two cars is the AMG model's single bar grille with the high performance marque's now familiar diamond-studded background.

BMW M2: Strong demand drives bigger allocation for Oz

High local demand for the BMW M2 has seen the company secure additional allocation of its entry-level 'M' car, the company says, cementing Australia's position as the premier BMW M market. Since its introduction in April last year, the BMW M2 has shifted 671 units, and year-to-date is the M brand's most popular model. Marc Werner, CEO for BMW Group Australia, said continued high demand for the smallest M model in Australia contributed to the additional allocation for our market.
