Surely you do not forget if the Chinese Car Factory “Geely” had so many shares in the world’s leading manufacturers. Before plunging into Daimler, Geely has bought Volvo, and this time, the Chinese manufacturer is trying to get one of its subsidiaries Lynk & Co on Volvo.
Yep, Volvo will work with Lynk & Co, in this case, Volvo will work together to produce cars for Lynk & Co for the European market. So, Lynk & Co alone can meet its destination is penetrated the European market. For its own location, Volvo will use Belgium as the production base of Lynk & Co. You know? Why Belgium? Would not it be better if Lynk & Co was produced in Volvo’s home country Sweden? Yep, indeed Volvo is from Sweden, but in fact, this manufacturer has a good history in Belgium, where their production facility located in Ghent, West Belgium has been producing Volvo cars since 1965.
Well, the Volvo factory in Ghent itself is in fact also the most productive factory of this Scandinavian manufacturer, where there are 5,000 workers producing the new Volvo XC40, then the older Volvo V40 and S60. In addition to products from Lynk & Co, this production facility will also soon produce a new vehicle that is Volvo V60. Javier Varela, VP for Manufacturing & Logistics Volvo Cars told Carscoops that with the Volvo plant in Ghent being the production base of Lynk & Co, the Chinese brand will be produced with high quality control under Volvo.
Lynk & Co was introduced by Geely in 2015, and last year Volvo alone took 30% of Lynk & Co shares, while the remaining 50% belonged to Geely, and the remainder was owned by Zhejiang Geely Holding as the parent of all companies this. Production from Lynk & Co cars in Belgium itself will begin next year, more specifically at the end of 2019. Well, with Volvo shares in Lynk & Co, and the fact that Lynk & Co’s products are manufactured at the Volvo plant, the products from Lynk & Co will also be built using the same Compact Modular Architecture platform used in Volvo XC40.
Lynk & Co itself seems to be a fairly aggressive brand from China to penetrate the European market, at the same time other brands such as Exeed from Chery also want to explore the blue continental market. So what do you think?
