What is the Lynk&Co 02?

The 02 is the third model from a new Chinese brand called Lynk&Co, which will arrive in Europe next year. While you might not be familiar with the brand, its owner, the behemoth Geely, is slowly but surely taking over the automotive world.

Its core brand Geely sells 1.25 million cars in China annually, and it also owns Volvo, Lotus and London Electric Vehicle Company (which makes London cabs) and recently bought a 10% stake in Daimler, Mercedes’ owners. Quite serious business, then.

The idea is that premium Volvo sits at the top of Geely's European line-up of car makers, with Lynk&Co below it as a mid-range brand. This then paves the way for the possible introduction of Geely as a budget brand in Europe.

The 02 compact SUV follows reveals of the 01, a larger SUV and the 03, a saloon. The 01 will arrive early next year in Europe and the 02 will follow in 2020. Meanwhile, the 03 is likely to be sold only in China, where saloons remain popular.

With the firm sizing up a two-strong line-up for Europe comprising of the flagship 01 and the smaller, sportier 02 – a Mercedes GLA rivalling crossover – Lynk & Co has revealed that its European offerings will consist solely of electrified models. Now read our first drive review of the Lynk & Co 01…

Lynk&Co bills the 02 as a sporty crossover. It sits between the Nissan Juke and Qashqai in terms of dimensions and rivals models such as the Mazda CX-3 and more premium Mercedes GLA.

It is based on a platform called Compact Modular Architecture, on which the 01 and 03 are also based. It’s a Geely-wide architecture but is best known in the West as the platform for the well-received Volvo XC40.

The similarities don’t stop there. The 02 for Europe will only be sold as a plug-in hybrid, regular hybrid or battery electric vehicle; the PHEV will arrive first and will be based heavily on the XC40 plug-in hybrid, on sale later this year.

While little has been confirmed on Lynk&Co’s equivalent, it’s fair to say not much will change over Volvo’s PHEV, named T5 Twin Engine. It uses a 177bhp 1.5-litre three-cylinder engine along with a 75bhp electric motor driving through a new seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. Range is likely to be 31 miles on electric only.

What’s the Lynk&Co 02 like inside?

Full disclosure: we drove the 02 for 15 minutes on exceptionally smooth roads near the shiny new Lynk&Co factory in Zhangjiakou, China. The cars currently being made are for the Chinese market, which, for now, only get a standard 1.5-litre or 2.0-litre petrol, rather than the electrified versions coming to Europe.

We drove the 177bhp 1.5, which is the same engine that Volvo uses and will also help to power the PHEV. When quickly accelerating at low revs, the engine is gruff, but get above 3500rpm and it coasts along happily. The dual-clutch auto, which we’ll get on the 02 PHEV, is fairly smooth, too.

Ride at low speeds is comfortable in the front or rear, but at motorway speeds it gets notably fidgety. Given that the test roads were silky smooth, there’s some work to be done to keep British drivers happy.

Meanwhile, handling is impossible to review, given that we only turned three wide corners in our 15 minutes with the car. Steering is light (as are the brakes) and while it’s not precise steering, there’s a satisfying connection with the car when turning.

So, the signs are mostly encouraging, and there’s more work to be done for Europe. R&D boss Ling Zhi tells us that upcoming European 02 models will be more dynamic, because Europeans “care more about handling and ride” than Chinese people, who mostly drive on long, straight highways.

The interior is attractive and functional, with good-quality materials. We were proudly told the glass for the 10.2in central screen is the same as that used in the Apple iPhone 8, and the infotainment system was seemingly intuitive to use – though testing was limited, because it was in Chinese.

There are plenty of cubbyholes and lots of nods to connectivity – something Lynk&Co has claimed is central to its products – with an in-built dashcam, two USBs, wireless phone charging and, most notably, free wi-fi for the entire ownership period. However, this is for China and is not confirmed for European models.

The materials, particularly on the dashboard and below, are original but subtle in design, while appearing durable too. At first go at least, there are some of the best (and most interesting) finishes we’ve seen on a car for some time.

Should you buy a Lynk&Co 02 at launch?

One key element for Lynk&Co’s future success will be its selling strategy. It’s keen to push a subscription model – a Netflix for cars, if you like – and says it will be more competitive than rivals. That’s down, at least in part, to a choice of just eight specifications and no options, as well as a very limited dealer network: just one store per country. It’s too early for pricing, but in China, its starting price as a straight-up purchase is around £15,000.

Google redesigns Drive to look more like the new Gmail

  Google redesigns Drive to look more like the new Gmail Google has given Drive a surprise makeover with elements that make it look more like the new Gmail. The redesign doesn't come with new features, but when you get it, you'll notice that The Big G has changed the Drive interface background from gray to white for a cleaner look. Its boxes and icons now also have much rounded corners and look a bit taller than before, and Drive's logo now has a more prominent place on the top left corner of the interface. You'll also find that Google has shuffled Drive's icons around, with the Settings and Help Center icons now in the same line as the search bar.

So if your first instinct is to see the Lynk & Co 01 as another no-hoper, that’s understandable. The all-wheel drive version was far better not so much for any noticeable increase in traction, but because the seven-speeder switches ratios crisply and intelligently.

Lynk & Co will also enter Germany in 2019 with other European markets and the US to follow, with the United Kingdom one of those under consideration. Right-hand- drive is in the company ’s plans, though no date has been set. “It’s technically doable. We will do it, but we consider other markets first ,” said

To drive, early signs for the 02 are very promising. It’s not especially fast or dynamic, but a car in this segment doesn’t need to be. This car is aimed at young urbanites who aren’t necessarily into cars. For those buyers, this will do the job nicely, not least because it has plenty of style appeal – so much so that Lynk&Co predicts it may well sell more 02s than the more mainstream and slightly bigger 01.
