UAAGI Brings In Lynk & Co, Previews 2 SUV Models

It’s official: United Asia Automotive Group (UAAGI), has been appointed as the official distributor of Lynk & Co in the Philippines. The global premium brand, formed as a partnership between Volvo Cars and Geely, is set for an official launch at the Manila International Auto Show from April 4 to 7, 2024.

“We introduce Lynk & Co Philippines to the local market with much excitement and positivity, knowing that this brand affords Filipinos the opportunity to drive home a premium, global vehicle that ticks all the right boxes in terms of design aesthetic, safety, and modern connectivity,” says Froilan Dytianquin, UAAGI Group Managing Director and Lynk & Co Philippines Brand Head.

Before its official launch, however, Lynk & Co Philippines showed off its initial two-vehicle line-up: the Lynk & Co 01 PHEV and the Lynk & Co 06 compact crossover. The Lynk & Co 01 PHEV rides on the Compact Modular Architecture or CMA platform, while the Lynk & Co 06 uses the B-segment Modular Architecture or BMA platform.

As its name implies, the Lynk & Co 01 PHEV is powered by a plug-in hybrid system pairing a 1.5-liter turbocharged engine with an electric motor. The “Drive-E” as the engine tech’s called produces a combined 262 horsepower output, while its pure EV range is pegged at 69 kilometers. It can be charged using a Type 2 AC charger.

Confirmed features of the Lynk & Co 01 PHEV include the trademark Aurora Borealis DRLs, Energy Cube rear lights, and 20-inch two-tone alloy wheels. Inside, it has a 12.3-inch multi-information display and a 12.7-inch infotainment system with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The speaker system is by Infinity.

Meanwhile, the Lynk & Co 06 uses a turbocharged 1.5-liter 4-cylinder engine with 181 horsepower and 290 Nm of torque. If it sounds familiar, it should be, as it’s the same one used by the all-new Geely Coolray (down to the 7-speed dual clutch automatic). Unlike the Coolray, however, the model does have independent suspension on all four corners.

Features of this B-segment SUV include the same Aurora Borealis DRLs, Energy Cube rear lights, but also dual exhaust pipes, a panoramic sunroof and power tailgate.

Both models carry a myriad of ADAS features including adaptive cruise control, autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian detection, traffic jam assist, and lane keep assist with lane departure warning.

“Lynk & Co not only elevates UAAGI’s entire auto brand portfolio, but also allows us to cater to a wider audience of Filipino motorists and their discerning tastes and preferences. We believe Lynk & Co Philippines perfectly complements UAAGI’s existing offerings, providing Filipinos with a wider range of modern, stylish, safe, high-quality automotive choices,” says UAAGI Chairman Rommel L. Sytin.

Image pricing of the Lynk & Co 01 PHEV is pegged at P 2.4-million, while the Lynk & Co 06 is pegged at P 1.5 million. Both models will be available for test drives at MIAS.

  3. Wondering why this was not awarded to Sojitz G..... Geely and Lynk & Co should just have 1 distributor in the Philippines...

  4. Well, it's still a Geely product in just a new packaging.
