Geely bought out the Swedish car manufacturer Volvo Group in 2016 and Lynk & Co. founded as part of a stable of brands intended to appeal to the Chinese market and the US and the Middle East as well as Europe. The idea is to build increasingly modular and efficient high-tech vehicles in an automotive industry that works together to speed up the creation of a wide variety of EVs that will limit climate emissions.

Additionally, the company has struggled to form a US headquarters in San Francisco in recent years. They waited to set up their subscription-based business model, in which users pay a fixed fee to cover maintenance, insurance and road tax. The automaker is betting on modern EVs with zero emissions, plus a modern subscription-based ownership model to disrupt the competitive car market.
Lynk & Co is one of the most successful local brands in its home country and has delivered more than 660,000 models since the launch of its first model. The 01 crossover is built on Volvo’s modular architecture chassis. Lynk & Co’s EV will be based on the same SEA platform from Geely that sits under the Zeekr 001 and new Polestar 4.
More appealing than the opt-in option is the flexibility of options that Lynk & Co. upfront offers to customers, including a no-commitment subscription-based lease option, purchase with four-year warranty or even lease. We expect these models to prove more or less popular themselves and eventually be phased out of the company’s offerings, but for now it’s great to see flexible usage and ownership options for such an expensive but critical part of customers’ lives .
