Lynk & Co has teased a new fastback model it will premiere at the Beijing Auto Show opening on September 26th.
The Geely-owned automaker has released a host of models in recent years and this fastback is shaping up to be one of its most attractive. It is currently codenamed the DC1E and brings the company’s identifiable design language into a sleek body that stands out from the 03 sedan as well as the 01 and 02 SUVs.
The front of the Lynk & Co DC1E features a set of small headlights with vertical LED daytime running lights. These teaser images also reveal it will have pop-out door handles and frameless doors while the rear will include LED taillights, a light bar, and a subtle roof spoiler. However, it is not the design that is the headline of the DC1E. Instead, it is the fact that it will be all-electric.
Local reports claim the DC1E will land with a 100 kWh battery pack and that it will be sold in rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive configurations. The rear-wheel drive model will be primarily focused on range and could travel up to 725 km (450 miles) on a single charge. Meanwhile, the all-wheel drive model may have a range of around 635 km (394 miles) based on the NEDC standard.
Underpinning the new Lynk & Co model will be a new Pure Electric Modular Architecture (PMA) that will allegedly be used by electric vehicles from Geely, Volvo, and Polestar in the future. The DC1E is also set to receive a Level 3 driver assistance suite.
