The 39.6 kWh lithium nickel-manganese-cobalt oxide (NMC) battery provides a capacity that exceeds plug-in hybrid cars sold in Europe. 

The hybrid drive system, named 'E-Motive EM-P' by Lynk & Co, consists of two electric motors, four-wheel drive and a 1.5 turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine, and the total system output reaches 400 kW (544 hp).

The new plug-in hybrid SUV from Geely
Geely is a Chinese company active in the automotive industry and, thanks to the acquisition of prestigious brands such as Volvo and Polestar, has made a quantum leap in car production. However, the Geely brand also has its own line of SUVs and, among them, is preparing to launch the new Lynk & Co 08, a plug-in hybrid based on the CMA platform.
