Praising feedback

Our Partnership Manager, Yannick, has been given the opportunity to drive around with the Lynk&Co 01 Plug-in Hybrid. He already has some positive feedback: 

"De Lynk&Co 01 is een bijzonder aangename wagen om mee te rijden: soepel, krachtig en comfortabel. Het is een praktische wagen die uitgerust is met alle mogelijke opties. Een full-option wagen die ook nog eens heel praktisch is, want de wagen biedt een riante binnenruimte voor bestuurder en passagiers en heeft een heel behoorlijke koffer.  

Los van het comfort en de ruimte van de wagen, ben ik vooral heel positief verrast over het elektrisch rijbereik. Met een netto-accucapaciteit van 14.1 kWh haalt de Lynk&Co 01 makkelijk 69 km rijbereik.

Bovendien ben je dankzij deze mooie en opvallende verschijning nooit een grijze muis in het verkeer. En dat is ook leuk mee genomen." - Yannick, Partnership Manager

In short, the Lynk&Co 01 is an impressive car with advanced connectivity and performance, while the subscription model offers a flexible and convenient way to access a car.
