Well, it appears that Geely’s presence in Malaysia will not just be limited to Proton, but it will include their funky upstart Lynk & Co as well.

Nestled within a press release highlighting Geely’s plans to increase sales to 3.65 million units by 2025, the Hangzhou-based company revealed that Lynk & Co will expand its global presence by entering Malaysia, Australia, and New Zealand. Yes, Malaysia was singled out in the press release. Excited? Us too.

This news could seemingly tie in with Geely’s earlier announcement that Proton’s Tanjung Malim plant will be utilized as their right-hand drive production hub. At the moment, all Lynk & Co models are left-hand drive-only; there are not right-hand drive models as yet. Fancy a made-in-Tanjung Malim Lynk & Co 03?
