Congratulations to our parent company, Geely, on their announcement of a new car brand – a cooperative venture with Geely-owned Volvo, called Lynk & Co. The joint announcement was made in Gothenburg, Sweden, and Berlin, Germany, last week. Lynk & Co’s first vehicle will be an SUV called the 01, an innovative vehicle that owners will be able to customize digitally, both by reconfiguring the main touchscreen display in the center of the dashboard and by downloading apps.
Congrats to our parent company, Geely, on their announcement of a new car brand
Lynk & Co claims to be the first auto manufacturer that will allow third-party development of apps for its cars’ Linux-based operating system. Apps will potentially work with a standard shareable lock system, through which vehicle owners could give time-limited access to their cars to other people through encrypted digital keys that can be used to unlock the car using a mobile phone. In addition, Lynk & Co plans to offer only direct sales in most major territories, including throughout the United States.
This is exciting news, and we’re proud to be part of the Geely family. We’re looking forward to seeing these cars on the road!
