With a length of 4.45 meters, the electric SUV hits every segment in which many are interested in a compact entry-level crossover. The Zeekr X presents itself as the chic twin brother of the Smart
Zeekr wants to attract interested parties to the Geely offshoot, especially in Europe. Therefore, the look of the Zeekr X was also created at the Geely design center in Gothenburg, with the help of Stefan Sielaff. Sielaff has an eventful past in the automotive industry and was responsible for brands such as Audi, Volkswagen, Mercedes and Bentley in various positions over the past decades before moving to the Chinese car manufacturer Geely and now prefers to work from Gothenburg.
The Zeekr X is the third model after the Zeekr 001 and 009, which are used as luxury sedans and vans in higher classes. How variable the SEA platform is is shown by the fact that it is not only home to the compact Zeekr X, but also to the 4.97 meter long shooting brake of the Zeekr 001. Its performance data is just as impressive as the styling: 400 kW / 544 hp, 768 Nm torque, all-wheel drive and 0 to 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds. The two batteries with sizes of 86 and 100 kWh in the underbody can be boosted up to 80 percent within 30 minutes and if you fold down the back seat of the electric model, you can use more than 2,100 liters of storage space. Anyone who uses Zeekr's own 360 kW charger pumps 120 fresh kilometers of range into the Chinese in five minutes.
“The Zeekr brand is poised to succeed in the premium EV segment. We have behind us the best resources of an automotive company, including an established supply chain and a broad industrial footprint ready to start producing vehicles," says Andy An Conghui, CEO of Zeekr Technology. "We also benefit from a technology-driven background Mindset that drives us to provide consumers with a better EV experience.”
