Geely has released the first official pictures of the new Zeekr 007 sedan which is the fourth model in the brand’s portfolio. The company has already launched the 001 SUV as well as its performance version 001 FR, the Zeekr X electric hatchback, and the 009 luxury electric MPV.
In terms of looks, the 007 sedan is simply stunning. The credit goes to Stefan Sielaff, who is a former Bentley design chief who now heads Geely Group’s design department. Stefan has also previously spent most of his career with Audi where he designed the A1 and A7. He had a short stint at Mercedes-Benz too.
Talking about the design, the Zeekr 007 boasts an integrated light curtain which according to Geely, is the first hidden penetrating front face design in the world. The fascia integrates the light strip, daytime running lights, and headlights, which make the front turn black once the lights are off.
The side profile renders a sporty silhouette with hidden door handles, an extended rear quarter glass & a floating roof appearance. It also features Smart Driver Assist Interactive Lights on the sides, which can turn blue to inform pedestrians of the direction when parking.
The roof glass of 007 uses the industry’s first nano-silvered privacy dome, the industry’s first rear windshield embedded in the double glass nano-silvered heat insulation film, gradient privacy film with a transparent view, and excellent thermal insulation.
Towards the rear, the 007 adopts a clamshell tailgate, so the gap between the trunk and the body is moved to the side of the car, making the tailgate opening larger. The tailgate features an embossed pattern right below the slim LED light bar. Zeekr branding can be seen at the base of the roof glass just above the trunk.
Zeekr 007 underpins a PMA2+ (SEA) platform that supports 800V architecture and double-wishbone suspension. The sedan measures 4,865/1,900/1,450 mm in dimensions with a 2,928 mm wheelbase, making it almost equal to the Toyota Camry but with a longer wheelbase which will translate into better interior space for the occupants.
Although complete technical details are yet to be known, the 007 sedan will carry a 204 hp electric motor with 350 Nm torque. It can sprint from 0-100 km/h in just 6.5 seconds. Zeekr 007 is also equipped with three LiDARs and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8295 chip. The newest Zeekr offering will make its first public appearance at the upcoming Guangzhou Auto Show scheduled to open doors next week where pre-sales of the 007 sedan will also commence.
