Zeekr starts with the X and the 001. The Zeekr The 001 is a kind of luxurious, low and sporty shooting brake-like, topped with a design language that is reminiscent of the style of that other sister brand, Lynk&Co.
The Zeekr There is the 009, a super luxurious MPV-like, and now we have to wait for the fourth model: the Zeekr 007. That will be an electric sedan with a fairly streamlined body. This quickly puts it in the same boat as the Tesla Model 3, Xpeng P7, Volkswagen ID7 and Hyundai Ioniq 6, although the exact positioning depends on the dimensions, specifications and price of the Zeekr. That’s where the problem lies, because we actually don’t know much about this newcomer yet.
Well ‘Zeekr’ is what it looks like, because the brand comes with more images. It shows a sedan with a large glass roof, which consists of one continuous sheet of glass from (approximately) the B-pillar to just above the small sedan tailgate. Exactly: just like the Tesla Model 3. The long wheelbase and short, closed nose make it clear that this is an EV and the rather friendly, rounded design is different from Zeekr’s other models. The continuous light bar on the nose is striking. Visually it extends beyond the front wheels, because there is a black panel in the same style behind the wheel arches. A nice find, but not from Zeekr: Genesis also does it this way.
Another striking part of the 007 design is the ‘pimple’ on the roof, which undoubtedly contains lidars, radars and/or other technologies to support assistance systems. The 007 is the first Zeekr with such a striking bulge, which we previously encountered on the Volvo EX90 and Nio models. How appropriate: Nio also has to worry about this Zeekr as far as Geely is concerned.
We don’t know more at the time of writing, but given the pace of Zeekr, that will undoubtedly change quickly.
