Lynk & Co plans six-model range, limited private sales

Geely’s new Lynk & Co sub-brand is set for an aggressive launch schedule, meaning there will be at least three different models when exports, including to Australia, begin. The 01 SUV (pictured) has just gone on sale in China, and will be followed in short order by a lower-roofed crossover branded the 02, along with a more conventional three box saloon. No prizes for guessing what that will be called.
