Lynk & Co 08 EM-P production started in China

The mass-production of the Lynk & Co 08 EM-P has officially started at the brand’s factory in Ningbo, Meishan. The construction of this plant began in 2017 with a total investment of 10 billion yuan (1,37 billion USD). Its total area reaches 760,000 square meters. In November 2022, the 800,000th Lynk & Co vehicle was built here. It was the Lynk & Co 09 PHEV. It is interesting that the Meishan factory is located just 1 km away from the seaside. This location was picked because of the brand’s exporting intentions. The only model that Lynk & Co exports overseas, the Lynk & Co 01, is manufactured here.

We will also remind you that Lynk & Co has one more factory in Zhangjiakou. Here, Lynk & Co manufactures 02, 02 Hatchback, 03 and 03+ models. Meanwhile, the Meishan factory is responsible for the production of 01, 06, 08 and 09 models.

Moreover, the first vehicle that rolled off the production line is actually the top trim level car. We can tell it by 21-inch rims. Moreover, Lynk & Co has shared when the 08 EM-P will start deliveries in China. They are scheduled for September 8.
