If you are new to the Chinese car industry, we will clarify that Lynk & Co is a joint project between Geely and Volvo (which also belongs to Geely). In China, it is positioned like a hip brand that is aimed at the young customers. The Lynk & Co’s model line comprises seven vehicles (01,02,03,05,06,08 and 09). In the first half of 2023, Lynk & Co sold over 82,000 units. In the overseas markets, Lynk & Co has one model, which is the Lynk & Co 01. However, soon the mysterious Lynk & Co 02 EV will launch in Europe.

Lynk & Co 08 pre-sales

As it goes from the official Lynk & Co announcement, the 08 will start pre-sales on August 8. It looks like they are quite ready for this event since lots of actual Lynk & Co 08 cars were spotted in the dealer centers and Meizu stores across China. However, the first edition of the Lynk & Co 08 will be limited to just 1,008 units. Of course, this decision makes the pre-sales event more valuable. On the other hand, there can be a lot of speculators that will book a car and then resell the reservation to another customer. As a result, this limited edition thing can turn to be really chaotic.

Speaking about the price range of the Lynk & Co 08, it has yet to be revealed. However, according to rumors, its starting price will be about 240,000 yuan (33,435 USD). It is way cheaper than all the 08’s direct competitors, including the Denza N7 from BYD. Anyway, we will wait for the official release.
