There’s a new electric vehicle (EV) manufacturer in town, and it looks like it can go head to head with Tesla. Chinese car manufacturing giant Geely, whose acquisition of Volvo was finalized in 2010, has been developing a line of vehicles using the latter’s compact modular architecture. Its Chinese operations are directed under its new global brand called Lynk & Co, which was launched in October 2016.
Now, the company delivers on their promise to release a sedan. Their concept car was unveiled last Friday, but without details on specs.
Instead, Lynk & Co released stunning images of the concept vehicle courtesy of renowned Swedish photographer Fredrik Etoall.
While Lynk & Co uses Volvo’s compact modular architecture to develop its line of EVs, the Swedish manufacturer is also working on its first long-range EV. Volvo expects to roll it out by the end of the decade.
Coming a little sooner will be Geely’s first feature car, the model 01 crossover, which is expected to come out in China late this year. The first version would be a plug-in hybrid one, while an all electric model is in the works and is supposed to roll out by 2018. The 01 will also enter the U.S. and European markets eventually.
It’s another example of just how electric vehicles are becoming the future of clear energy transportation.
