Now that you mention it, I’m seeing a lot of overlap. The Lynk&Co auto shifter and parking button looks the same as the DCT Emira version. The climate control knobs are very similar too. And the steering wheel controls...Notice how it even shares the same engine start stop button with Lynk & Co
Do you have a link to more information on this, by chance?It’s less that it’s Lynk & Co and more that it’s Geely Group. Lotus were given access to the whole Geely Group’s designs, parts and supply chain. Hence why there’s a stack of Geely, Lynk, Volvo and Polestar components. There are some new Lotus-only parts too.
The head of HCI design for the Emira is a recent hire - ex McLaren, JLR and Renault. His team won the work on the Emira HCI in competition against the other Geely Group design studios. I think it’s going to be really good and very Lotus (driver focussed).
Here's an interview with Lotus MD Matt Windle where he talks about the relationship with Geely (from 12:22 to 14:00):Do you have a link to more information on this, by chance?
Cheers, appreciate the detailed reply. Seems like quite an ideal situation for Lotus in many respects.Here's an interview with Lotus MD Matt Windle where he talks about the relationship with Geely (from 12:22 to 14:00):

I don't have more details on the design itself yet, but you can see elements of it in several of the Lotus and reviewer videos.
