The main competitors of this Chinese car with Swedish roots will be the American Ford Focus and the German VW Golf. The car will receive both a hybrid powertrain and conventional gasoline and diesel counterparts.

Engineers of the Sino-Swedish brand Lynk & Co are already working hard on their fourth model, which is a compact hatchback. This fresh batch of “spy” photos, which fell into our hands a couple of minutes ago, clearly shows that the prototype is slowly starting to drop its camouflage.

  The last time we saw the Lynk & Co 4 model during testing, it was on public roads under a very tight disguise. Now most of the plastic body panels have disappeared, and now we can see the serial headlights with two rows of high-power LEDs, taillights, as well as a muscular side profile.

According to unconfirmed information, the Sino-Swedish novelty will be based on the same platform on which all future Volvo compact models will be built.

But if some models of the Swedish auto giant are presented in a fully electric version, then this will not happen with the machines from Lynk & Co. Our friends insiders say that the prototype seen is equipped with a hybrid powertrain consisting of a 1.5-liter gasoline engine and an electric motor. It is reported that in the electric mode, the hatchback will be able to overcome about 80 kilometers.

  It is also known that, depending on the specific market, the new Lynk & Co model will be offered with a 2.0-liter turbodiesel in versions with 150 hp. and 190 hp With the appearance of new items on sale, a petrol unit with a capacity of 250 hp and a 1.5-liter engine with a capacity of 180 hp will also be available.

Not so long ago, we wrote that journalists got a prototype of the crossover Lynk & Co 01.
