Ordering Chinese

Geely design chief Peter Horbury confirmed to Wheels at the recent LA motor show that the new Chinese brand Lynk & Co would have vehicles produced in right-hand drive, paving the way for the brand to come to Australia as early as 2018.

An offshoot of Geely, owner of Volvo, Lynk & Co is a youth-oriented brand that will offer a you guessed it compact SUV as its first model. Horbury also confirmed the safety levels would be on par with Volvo, setting a new standard for Chinese cars.
