At the global unveiling of the Lynk & Co 03, Geely Auto Group has made bold announcement that all Lynk & Co products will come with a Lifetime Product Warranty and free data traffic access as standard. The newly founded carmaker also confirmed that the Lynk & Co 01 SUV is production ready and will enter the Chinese market later this year.

Lynk & Co will become the world’s first automaker to offer free internet connectivity for live-traffic view, and every vehicle purchased globally will benefit from this. As a statement of quality and confidence in their products, all Lynk & Co cars will come with a lifetime warranty and roadside assistance. More details of the internet connectivity and lifetime warranty package will be revealed in due course. The Chinese brand will also venture into the US market by 2019.

Also in the pipeline is the Open-API (Application Programme Interface) where app developers can develop apps for Lynk & Co. Owners can then download these apps via a dedicated app store.

Inspired by the business models by fashion and tech giants, Lynk & Co are moving away from the conventional way of offering multiple trim levels and options. Instead, all cars will be offered in its highest specification. And like fashion, each season will feature a different ‘theme’.

Lifetime warranty, free internet, open-API and subscription-based ownership; all these are unheard of from any automaker, period. Surely, we can expect more details about its extremely ambitious business plans when the first Lynk & Co vehicle goes on sale come end-2017.
