Shanghai (Gasgoo)- On Tuesday, Geely Auto said its premium brand Lynk & Co delivered 6,137 vehicles in January, increasing 2.68 percent compared with 6,012 units of December, 2017. And according to a local media, Lynk & Co has received a total of almost 10,000 orders for new vehicles.
Yi Han, executive deputy general manager of Lynk & Co Sales Company, said he wouldn’t worry about sales performance before the model hit the market, but the production capacity may be a concern. At present, Lynk & Co 01 and Volvo’s engines are built at the same factory. As Lynk & Co and Volvo have strong market demands, it may be difficult for engine production to meet market demands. It is said that by the first half of this year, the sales will, to some extent, depend on the output. Lynk & CO 02 will make its debut in the first half of this year.
The premium brand has been stepping up efforts to expand the production capacity. The Luqiao factory in Zhejiang province, which mainly builds Lynk & Co 01, is expected to produce 200,000 vehicles per year while the Zhangjiakou factory will start to produce Lynk & Co 02 and 03. Besides, a new engine factory is also under consideration. With the production expansion, the sales of Lynk & CO are expected to increase accordingly.
Lynk & Co has nearly 100 dealerships at present. In accordance with the company’s plan, the number will be doubled by the end of this year. The increase in the number of dealership will be key to raise sales as well as to boost the brand’s publicity.
