Lynk & Co 03 fuel-burning version
Retaining Lynk & Co family's signature design language, the 03 PHEV features an unmistakable front face with its grille seamlessly connecting with headlights on both sides. The lower center of gravity suggests its position as a compact sports sedan. At the rear end, a massive green plate with the logo of “03 PHEV” and iconic taillights embedded with LED light source highlight the personality for the car. Besides, the sports essence is further enhanced by the aluminium alloy rims.
Powering the vehicle is a 1.5-litre turbocharged engine and an electric motor, delivering a rated power of 132kW. Combined fuel consumption is only 1.7 litre per 100km.
Lynk & Co 02 fuel-burning version
According to local media, the Lynk & Co 02 PHEV is expected to go on sale in the third quarter as well. The new PHEV displays a striking resemblance to its fuel-burning version. Some nuances can still be noticed—the trim panels on the front fenders are replaced with annular blue trims and the logo at the rear end is accordingly changed to “02 PHEV”.
Based on the record from China's MIIT, the Lynk & Co 02 will carry a hybrid powertrain as same as that of the 01 PHEV, consisting of a 1.5-litre turbocharged engine and an electric motor. Maximum power and combined fuel consumption of the drivetrain are identical to the aforesaid Lynk & Co 03 PHEV.
