Lynk & Co, winner of multiple WTCR titles, unveiled its first all-electric vehicle at its global premiere event in Gothenburg, the Lynk & Co Z10 (pronounced z-one-zero). Previously known by the codename E371 and Lynk & Co Zero, the Z10 is positioned as the brand’s flagship sedan. It measures 5028/1966/1468 mm and has a wheelbase of 3005 mm.

Lynk & Co’s “The Next Day” concept car inspires the new car’s design. The Z10’s headlights retain Lynk & Co’s signature design of separate daytime running lights, while its side profile is reminiscent of the Lotus Emeya, as we reported earlier. It has hidden door handles and frameless doors. The rear design complements the front, featuring a continuous taillight strip similar to the Lynk & Co 07 EM-P PHEV. It has an electrified rear spoiler. It boasts a drag coefficient of only 0.198cd. The design team includes over 100 designers from more than 20 countries. 

Lynk & Co Z10 is built on an 800V architecture and equipped with a high-strength battery with a grid-like anti-collision structure capable of withstanding forces of up to 65 tons impact force. The Z10 has a range of over 800 kilometers on a single charge and can replenish 573 kilometers of range in 15 minutes. It has dual silicon carbide motors, achieving 0-100 km/h acceleration in 3.5 seconds.

Lynk & Co Z10 uses the SEA (Sustainable Experience Architecture) platform, also used in various models from Lotus, Smart, Zeekr, and Volvo, all in association with Geely. The chassis features a high-strength body, with 84.65% of the structure made from high-strength steel and aluminum, achieving a torsional rigidity of 45,000 Nm/deg. Additionally, the Z10 is equipped with dual-chamber air springs and electromagnetic suspension to provide a comfortable ride.

The Lynk & Co Z10 is not just about performance but luxury and comfort. The center console boasts a 15.4-inch floating touchscreen complimented by a heads-up display (HUD). The vehicle features a flat-bottomed, two-spoke, multifunction steering wheel with a minimalistic center console. The intelligent cabin features the Flyme Auto system, developed in partnership with Meizu and powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8295. Both front and rear seats have ventilation, heating, and massage features, ensuring a genuinely indulgent driving experience.

The Lynk & Co Z10 supports autonomous driving with lidar and an Nvidia Orin-X chip. It offers highway NOA (Navigation on Autopilot) and urban NOA, which does not heavily rely on high-precision maps.

Lynk & Co is a joint venture between Geely Auto and Volvo, while Zeekr is owned by Geely Auto. Geely also owns Lotus. It is important to note that the original Lynk & Co Zero concept from four years ago has evolved into what is now known as the Zeekr 001. The Lynk & Co Z10 differentiates itself from Zeekr 001 with a distinct brand direction and style. However, the price of the Lynk & Co Z10 was not announced during the event. Our sources indicated it will start north of 200,000 yuan (27,600 USD). Stay tuned for future updates.
