The high-riding model will be offered by the Chinese brand, which is owned by Volvo parent firm Geely and intends to offer cars purely via subscription, in both the European and Chinese markets. While the 05 name isn't confirmed, it fits in with the firm’s existing naming strategy.
Like all other Lynk&Co models, the 05 will sit atop the same Volvo-developed Compact Modular Architecture (CMA) platform as the Volvo XC40 compact SUV and recently revealed Polestar 2 electric fastback.
Although the prototype is heavily camouflaged, it bears a heavy resemblance to the 01, which will spearhead Lynk&Co's European launch when production begins in Ghent, Belgium in early 2020.
The 05, which follows the the 03 saloon and 04 hatchback, looks to share its distinctive wing-mounted headlight layout with all other Lynk&Co models, being marked out from the 01 by its rakish roofline and rear spoiler.
Details on the 05’s powertrains are scarce, but like the 01, it's set to make use of Volvo’s range of 2.0-litre four-cylinder and 1.5-litre three-cylinder petrol engines, with a plug-in hybrid variant likely to follow.
A European launch date hasn't yet been specified, but it will come some months after the car goes on sale in China.
