Geely Debuts Its Ultra-Luxe Zeekr Brand With The 001 Shooting Brake EV

When it was founded in 1997, Geely became China’s first-ever privately-owned automotive manufacturer. These days, it’s something of a multinational presence, for, in addition to making affordable consumer cars, it’s also the owner of Lotus, Polestar, and Volvo. In other words — Geely has everything it needs to make EVs for itself.

And with the launch of the debut model from its Zeekr sub-brand, it’s doing just that. Dubbed the ‘001,’ it’ll be based on the SEA (Sustainable Experience Architecture) platform to be used for future Volvo and Polestar vehicles. In practice, this means that it’ll feature a pair of electric motors at the front and rear axles, producing a combined 400Kw output that translates to 516lb-ft of torque, 0-62mph in 3.8s, and a top speed of over 124mph. Available with both 86kWh and 100kWh battery packs, it’s estimated to offer as much as 435 miles of range on a single charge. And because Zeekr is planning on building a wide-ranging network of some 2,200 power stations, the 001’s support for 360kW charging speeds means that one could add up to 75 miles of range in just five minutes. It’ll go up for sale in China starting this fall, with a global release coming in 2022.
