Geely's new car brand, Lynk & Co, has revealed its first ever vehicle — a compact and completely shareable SUV called the 01.

Lynk & Co claims it is the most connected car ever made (quite an audacious statement) and can be shared by anyone at anytime through an open social media platform. The system, which is basically Airbnb for vehicles, means that you could park your car at work and rent it out during the day until you've finished.

Aside from its slightly scary, but very forward-thinking main feature, there's a 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine or a 2.0-liter four-cylinder unit under the hood, combined with a dual-clutch transmission. Power will flow down to the front wheels or through an optional all-wheel drive system.

Both the design and engine look familiar because Geely owns Volvo, and some of that same technology from the well-known Swedish manufacturer has been used here in this SUV.

Lynk & Co's 01 SUV is set to launch with a petrol engine in China in 2017, and with hybrid engines in Europe and the USA in the following months. The company also plans to release fully electric cars in the near future.

Check out the car above, and head over to Geely's website for more details.
