Lifetime Warranty for Lynk and Co Cars from Volvo and Geely
|   Friday, June 02, 2017
The Chinese company Lynk & Co, created by Volvo with Geely, came with amazing statementsjust six months after launch, which are an absolute premiere in the automotive world! According to Lynk & Co Vice President, Alain Visser, all company cars will have a lifetime warranty, the latest technologies and free connectivity, and unlimited internet traffic via a Wi-Fi hotspot. None of the established car manufacturers provide that service. This is clearly Lynk & Co's way of challenging the traditional business model!

Moreover, Lynk & Co cars will be sold directly to the customer without involving distributors, following Tesla's example with its electric cars.
The cars can be ordered online at a fixed price, and later delivered to customers. The models will have all optionals included and customers can choose only the color and rims! According to the manufacturer, these models will be the most connected cars in the world and all systems and applications will receive periodically receive updates. In other words, they will be smartphones on wheels!

The cars will come without a key and can be opened and turned on through an application for smartphones. Why was this way chosen? According to the company the cars will be purchased or borrowed from other owners through a car-sharing system, and this could be made possible only with virtual keys.
If the owner is away from the car, he could borrow another car and the latter will recognize its driver preferences and adapts accordingly. The cars will be up for service while the owner is "sleeping" or not using the car so there will be no need to personally visit the service stations.

After the 01 and 02 concepts people from Lynk & Cobrought to the auto show in Shanghai the production version of the Lynk & Co 01 SUV, which is based on the future Volvo XC40, as well as the concept for the future sedan Lynk & Co 03, based on the upcoming Volvo S40. It is based on Volvo's new CMA platform meaning these models will have high quality threshold and superior reliability.

The interiors of the models are very similar with a digital dashboard, a touch screen on the center console, steering wheel and identical intakes for the ventilation system.

Given the minimal change on the SUV, the sedan production model will go into production with only minor adjustments. The production models will get a plug-in hybrid drive, which will combine an electric motor and a 1.5-liter engine with 3 cylinders, and later a gasoline engine with a displacement of 2.0 liters and 4 cylinders be offered.

Initially the Lynk & Co 01 and 03 models will be offered in China and then in Europe.
"We believe Lynk & Co will offer the most connected cars in the world, with the world's first in-car digital share function. We also offer a completely new business model, with a simplified product offer, transparent fixed pricing and an attractive purchase and ownership experience starting here in China this year. We will bring a unique offer of connected mobility, with the option to share your car, where everything is included. The key to everything we do is simplicity" stated Vice President Alain Visser.
