It's been awhile since we've heard much about Chinese automaker Lynk & Co. The company revealed its production 01 crossover at the end of 2016, along with its plans to eventually come to Europe and the U.S. with a unique car-sharing model. This was followed by a concept sedan that we thought might preview a 02 model, along with another sedan called 03. But things have been quiet until now, when a hatchback prototype was spotted by one of our spy photographers, which we're tentatively calling 04.

It's definitely a Lynk & Co car based on the headlights. They have the distinct and somewhat frog-like design of the 01 crossover, consisting of a bulbous upper lamp sitting atop the front fenders, and another lamp lower in the fascia, probably connected to the grille. We can make out taillights that also match the 01's design, mostly horizontal before taking a 90-degree turn downward at the edges of the tail.

We also expect that, like the current 01, this 04 will surely be based on Volvo architecture, specifically the Compact Modular Architecture (CMA). This platform also underpins the Volvo XC40 and upcoming S40. This also means Volvo powertrains will probably be used. As for when we might see any Lynk & Co vehicles in America, the soonest will likely be 2019. The company announced last year it was planning to make its first appearance in the American market in 2019 in San Francisco.
