Watch the Lynk & Co Zero EV undergo preproduction performance testing

After being revealed in concept form three months ago, Lynk & Co is taking its Zero electric vehicle to the test track in preproduction form. If nothing else, the camo looks wild.

The Lynk & Co Zero is a fully electric sports sedan capable of hitting 62 mph in less than four seconds. It’s projected to have 700 km of range, which translates to almost 435 miles. Assuming that’s certified under WLTP guidelines, a U.S.-spec version would likely be in the high 300 mile range.

It’s based on Geely’s Sustainable Electric Architecture and will have an 800-volt battery back. Geely hasn’t said for sure, but by estimation with that battery back, it should support up to the full 350 kW EV fast charging.

Customers will start receiving deliveries of the Zero in the last quarter of 2021.

Will it come to the United States? This author has been to several Lynk & Co events in the past, and while the company is focusing on China and Europe, everyone I’ve spoken with has indicated that they’d like to enter the U.S. market. An electric vehicle offering might be the catalyst the company needs.

We’d like to see it offered here, as more competition is always better, and it looks like it’ll be a hoot to drive.
