Ningbo, China – ZEEKR, the premium electric mobility brand from Geely Holding Group, has announced the delivery of over 2000 vehicles to customers in its first full month of production.
Just six months after Zeekr revealed its all-electric 001 model – a luxury shooting brake coupe – at the Shanghai Auto Show and one month since production started, it has now delivered 2,012 examples to customers in more than 150 cities across China.
Capacity at the Zeekr Intelligent Factory, one of the world’s most advanced vehicle facilities, is now ramping up to accommodate the unprecedented demand for the 001. Zeekr will continue to prioritize local market customers ahead of its planned global roll-out from 2023.
“We revealed Zeekr to the world in April this year and in just eight months, we have developed the 001, started production at our state-of-the-art Intelligent Factory in Ningbo and delivered over 2000 of our luxury shooting brake coupes. This was an extremely ambitious challenge for Zeekr and I am truly proud of this startup’s progress in such record time.” – Andy An, CEO of Zeekr
Zeekr’s 001 luxury shooting brake coupe is one of the most anticipated all-electric vehicles and the brand’s flagship product for the market. Based on Geely Holding Group’s Sustainable Electric Architecture (SEA), the vehicle is able to create 400kw of power with max torque of 768 Nm through a twin motor system capable of spiriting the 001 from 0-100kph in just 3.8 seconds and braking from 100-0 kph in just 34.5 meters.
The 100kWh Z-Battery is able to charge from 10% to 80% within 30 minutes and has a 712km range, according to the NEDC cycle used in China.
The average order price with options for the 001, for the Chinese market only, was confirmed at RMB335,000 (USD 53,000) with the vast majority of orders to date being for the mid to high range models.
Zeekr customers will be able to experience a Zeekr charging station at selected locations that cover nine major cities in China. Zeekr has also included third party charging points in 211 cities to provide a hassle-free and seamless charging experience for all Zeekr users.
