Lynk & Co delays sales launch for U.S. and Europe

China's Zhejiang Geely Holding Group has delayed Lynk & CO's sales launch in Europe and the United States because it needs more time to establish a company-owned dealership network. Alain Visser, Lynk & CO's senior vice president of marketing and sales, said that they will start in Europe between the first quarter and the first half of 2019 and enter the U.S. some months later.

 

 

Originally, Lynk planned to debut in both markets in late 2018, starting with sales of the 01 compact crossover. Volvo Car Corp.’s sister brand also revealed this week that Berlin and San Francisco will be its launch markets in Europe and the United States. Visser added that Lynk & CO will be the first brand to offer its owners the possibility to share their cars when they are not used, that's why they are starting from cities with a high penetration of shared- economy services.

 

 

Last year Visser said the current car distribution model is "broken” because outsourcing sales to dealers robs automakers of margins as well as the opportunity to build up their brand image. While Lynk & CO plans to set itself apart by emphasizing Internet sales, it also wants to build a network of more than 500 company-owned dealerships, which Visser said will be in big shopping malls. The network will include flagship stores and temporary pop-up stores in cities.

  • General Motors to lay off 1,100 workers
    06 Mar 2017

    General Motors promised us other things but that’s how it all turned to be, even if it said it will invest $1 billion in U.S. factories now it announced to temporarily cut off 1,100 workers in May as its Lansing Delta Township assembly plant in Michigan shifts production to Tennessee. Last year it added 800 jobs at its spring hill, Tennessee plant to build the new version of GMC Acadia SUV.  The Lansing plant will continue building the Buick Enclave and Chevrolet Traverse after it retools for a month. GM also has announced other U.S. factory cuts. U.S. President Donald Trump ha...

  • U.S. car sales seen down 2 percent in June?
    27 Jun 2017

    Analysts say that U.S. auto sales in June will likely fall 2 percent from a year earlier despite large discounts for consumers, presenting a fresh sign that automakers are heading into a downturn.

Automakers will release June U.S. sales results on July 3.  The seasonally adjusted annualized rate for the month will be 16.5 million vehicles, down nearly 2 percent from 16.8 million units in the same mo...

  • U.S. auto market down, but not poisoned!
    27 Jun 2017

    By saying the U.S. auto market goes down specialists literally ignore the fact that a shakeout normally requires a recession and rising unemployment to poison the market’s health, which by the way isn’t visible yet. Saying the consumer lending is currently in crisis is a wrong path, just like the worries that the U.S. car sales are about to dive by between 1 million to 4 million annually over the next 3 years.  The downward spiral can be saved by another government “cash for clunkers” subsidies. A stretched consumer, falling used prices, and technological obso...
