Volvo and Geely plan to combine their combustion engine operations
Volvo and Geely, its Chinese parent, have announced they intend to merge their internal-combustion engine (ICE) operations in the near future.
When Volvo and Geely's engine operations are merged, the new division will supply internal combustion engines and hybrid powertrains to all members of the Geely family, which also includes Lotus, Lynk & Co and LEVC, the maker of London's black taxi cabs.
Photographers have nabbed images of what is believed to be the Lynk & Co '01 Coupe', which will serve as the Chinese start-up's fourth model in its growing family.
In similar style to the BMW X4 and X6, along with the Mercedes-Benz GLC and GLE Coupes, the 01 Coupe will blend the high-riding body of a crossover with the sloping roofline of a coupe, serving as a design-focused niche product.
Chinese car maker Geely, which also owns Volvo and Lynk & Co, has unveiled a new modular platform for Polo-class cars.
Geely says BMA took four years to develop, and involved around 100 modular platform experts from 20 countries. Most of the work was reportedly done in the company's research and development centre in Hangzhou Bay.
The upcoming Lynk & Co 02 crossover has leaked online this week, giving us a first look at the third model in the young Chinese company's range.
Posted by Britain's Autocar, the 02 will slot below the larger 01 SUV, while sharing the CMA platform co-developed by parent companies Geely and Swedish marque Volvo.
The 02 is likely to have a lot in common with the Volvo XC40, which rides on the same architecture.
Mysterious Lynk & Co concept surfaces online, could preview upcoming 02 sedan

The images, taken by Fred Etoall for the Chinese manufacturer and published online byAdamsky Management, show a striking sedan which combines Lynk & Co's bold corporate face and a sedan body - as opposed to the SUV aesthetic adopted by the 01 crossover revealed late last year.
