Lynk & Co coming to Australia amid launch of five new cars


While not a household name in Australia, Lynk and Co is a fast-growing car company with a wide selection of cars and SUVs that could come to our shores

Chinese multinational car company Geely has announced its fast-growing car company Lynk & Co will soon expand into the Australian market.

Lynk & Co was founded in Sweden in 2016 and has since expanded into China and Europe with a line-up of six vehicles, with five new models to follow.

Announced in its ‘Smart Geely 2025’ strategy last week, the Chinese conglomerate detailed a plan to exceed 600,000 sales outside of its home market in China.

“Lynk & Co will expand its global presence by entering Russia, Malaysia, Australia, and New Zealand among others,” it said in a statement.

Geely Auto Group already has a well established network in Australia thanks to its brands such as Volvo and Lotus that will be joined by the all-electric Polestar brand in the coming months.

The group did not detail an exact date it would come to Australia but given the headline year of 2025 within the strategy, interested buyers likely won’t have to wait very long.

Along with a shift into new markets Lynk and Co will also launch five new cars that it says will help diversify its model range.

What cars could Lynk and Co bring to Australia?

We likely won’t know exactly what vehicles Lynk & Co are bringing to Australia for some time but the Chinese-Swedish brand has a wide range of traditional petrol and fully electric vehicles to choose from.

Following a numerical naming system similar to Polestar or Mazda, the Lynk & Co 01 midsize SUV was the first vehicle offered by the brand and is available with a self-charging hybrid, a plug-in hybrid and fully-electric drivetrain.

The 01 sits on the same CMA platform as the Volvo XC40 and is offered in a coupe-shaped version known as the Lynk and Co 05 with a similar selection of both hybrid and fully-electric versions.

The Lynk & Co 02 is closely related to the aforementioned models but is classified as a raised hatchback that is slightly shorter and sits much lower than the midsize SUVs. 

Unveiled in 2018, the Lynk & Co 03 was the brand’s first sedan and later spawned a performance version known as the Lynk & Co 03+, that features a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-petrol engine producing 195kW of power and 380Nm of torque that was paired with an eight-speed automatic and an all-wheel-drive system.

The Lynk & Co 06 is a small SUV offered by the brand with a 1.5-litre petrol and petrol-hybrid drivetrain options. At launch, buyers were able to purchase the 06 with the Lynk & Co 04 electric scooter as an optional accessory.

A seven-seat SUV known as the Lynk & Co 07 has been announced but not unveiled by the brand. With a size sitting somewhere between midsize and large SUV. The 07 sits on the same Volvo SPA platform as the Polestar 1 coupe.

Unveiled in June this year is the Lynk & Co 09, a large SUV that shares the same platform as the 07, and offers a more luxurious interior and a slew of self-charging and plug-in hybrid drivetrains.

It remains to be seen which Lynk and Co models will make it to Australia but with a wealth of existing and future models to choose from, they will likely be well-tailored to our local tastes.
