Geely to Use Volvo’s CMA Platform for New Car Brand

will make its highly anticipated launch on October 20, 2016, but as early as now, we’re already getting some details on what we can expect from s new car brand. One particularly useful nugget of information comes by way of Reuters, which is reporting that the new car brand’s models will be using s compact modular architecture (CMA), the smaller offshoot platform that Volvo developed to complement the bigger SPA platform used on the and models.

The report ties up with the widely-known belief that Volvo’s new platforms will also be used by Geely and its other brands. Geely, after all, owns all of these companies, including China Euro Vehicle (CEVT), the company that helped Volvo develop the platform. So from an economics standpoint, it makes sense for Geely to maximize the use of the new platform. It’s still unclear what kind of models Lynk & Co. plans to build, but a separate report from Automotive News indicates that Lynk & Co. will go the route of a sedan and first with both models to be offered in the middle class market where rivals like and SAIC Motor Corp. are also in. Geely’s objective is to promote its own cars to compete against local rivals in China with Volvo tackling the premium market.

As expected, China will be the first market to get a hold of these models when they become available with other regions, including the U.S. and Europe, expected to follow suit at a later date. In any case, more details are expected to arrive when the brand officially launches on Thursday, October 20, 2016.
