Link & Co from 03 2018 – the third model of the Link & Co brand
The new Link & Co sedan from 03 has found a way to produce cars and is preparing to enter the Chinese market before the end of 2018. The Cityradio 03 index is the third model of the Link & co brand (a brand created jointly by Geely and Volvo) and a great addition to the Link & Co 01 and Link & Co 02 crossover pair introduced earlier.

According to preliminary information, the price of a four-door sedan Link and Co. 03 equipped with a 156-horsepower 1.5 turbo gasoline engine in China will be 130,000-180,000 yuan (1200-1660 thousand conventional units).
I want to remind our readers that at this moment the Link & Co brand car is made in China and only for Chinese car owners, but before the end of 2019, the production of Link & Co 01, Link & Co and 02 sedan Link & Co 03 crossovers is planned to be established in Europe at the Volvo plant in the Belgian city of Ghent. Thus, already at the beginning of 2020 crossovers and sedans of the Link & Co brand will be available for European and, possibly, many buyers.
