Lynk & Co intends on launching two new models a year until 2020, according to its vice president Alain Visser.

Sales of the company’s first production model, the 01 SUV, have just commenced in China but the Geely-owned company is already targeting a dramatic expansion.

“We will launch two new cars a year until 2020. Up to five or six in total – when we go global by 2020, we want to be selling 500,000 cars a year,” Visser said to Auto Express.

Once production of the 01 ramps up, Lynk & Co will launch the smaller 02 crossover, and shortly after it lands in showrooms, the 03 sedan will follow. Other expected vehicles include a large SUV, an executive model and a small car targeting young buyers.

Talking about the firm’s plans, Lynk & Co head of design Peter Horbury said the brand will have a diverse range of vehicles:“We are not ruling out any bodystyles at this moment. There is room to look at something more youthful, more sporty – we’re seeing customers around 22 or 23 years old coming in to buy a new car now.”

Yesterday, Lynk & Co revealed that it received 6,000 orders for the 01 in just 137 seconds.

Geely’s new Lynk&Co brand didn’t plan on revealing its third new model, we hear, until late in April at the Beijing Motor Show. But the first images of the crossover have leaked out ahead of time.

Called the 02, the compact crossover is expected to slot in below the 01. Autocar reports that it shares its Compact Modular Architecture (CMA) with the new Volvo XC40, fitting dimensionally in between those two models.

We’re also told to expect a plug-in hybrid powertrain, with a completely electric version to follow – and a suspension tuned to European tastes. The styling (ostensibly penned by Peter Horbury) certainly reveals its European influence, with details that remind us of Porsches and Saabs in particular.

Look for the Lynk&Co 02 to launch for the Europe market in 2019, alongside the aforementioned 01 crossover and 03 sedan.
