The Lynk & Co 01 PHEV demonstrates efficient aftertreatment of the combustion engine exhaust gases. As the possible ‘extreme' operation modes are considered, the Clean Air Index benefits from the vehicle's ability to drive long distances in purely electric mode. Low NOx emissions are typical of petrol engines. Good control of ammonia (NH3) helps the vehicle collect additional points. CO emissions are generally well managed, but are higher in full load acceleration phases. Thanks to the particulate filter, the particle emissions levels are moderate, although there remains room for improvement.

This heavy SUV comes with a large electric driving range of 66.4 km, but in the case of an empty battery, it will consume 7.6 l/100 km petrol on average. On the highway, that figure will rise to 9.2 l/100 km. If regularly charged, Lynk & Co's PHEV delivers creditable efficiency performance and combines both its power sources to score 6 out of 10 points. In this case the rating assumes 53% usage with a charged battery and 47% as a conventional hybrid vehicle, a ratio which is based on the available range in all-electric mode.

Comments

The Lynk & Co's relatively big battery allows it to complete most everyday trips primarily as an electric vehicle and thus is very effective in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. If the battery is empty, however, the greenhouse gas figures are those of a normal large petrol SUV. In the cold laboratory WLTC+ test, 155 g CO2/km were emitted at the tailpipe and adding some 40 g CO2-eq./km from the fuel production and supply, the value increases to 195 g CO2-eq./km. With a total of 280 g CO2-eq./km each, the cold ambient test and the highway test score no points when tested with an empty battery.

Our verdict

The tested Lynk & Co 01 is a 5-door compact crossover SUV with a plug-in hybrid powertrain with a 17.6 kWh battery. In Green NCAP's assessment, the vehicle receives an overall rating of 3½ stars thanks to its good pollutant emissions control and its well-balanced electric range. However, its weight causes high consumption when the vehicle is working with the battery fully discharged. The car tested in Green NCAP was able to complete 66 km in pure electric mode, without switching on the combustion engine, over the special WLTC+ charge-depleting cycle. To obtain the best of this technology, the battery should be recharged as much as possible to benefit from the vehicle's electric properties, while range anxiety is eliminated by the combustion engine.
