10,000th Zeekr 007 rolls off the production line in China

Today in tweets on Weibo and Twitter Zeekr announced the 10,000th Zeekr 007 sedan rolled off the production line. Seeing as this figure has taken all of 56 days it’s no mean feat with a much faster ramp up in production than previous Zeekr models

Zeekr Vice President, Lin Jinwen, previously said that he expected the brand to deliver between 5,000 and 6,000 of the 007 in January. The company reportedly aims to surpass sales of the Tesla Model 3 this year – presumably that means sales in the China market rather than worldwide.

Previously Zeekr announced that they received 51,569 orders in the 40 days leading up the 007’s launch in December.

The Zeekr 007 has a length, width and height of 4865/1900/1450 mm with a wheelbase of 2928mm. Curb weight is 2,150 kg. Customers have a choice of two batteries, an in house developed Golden Battery or the CATL supplied Qilin. The 75 kWh Golden Battery is a lithium iron phosphate (LFP) unit which gives the 007 a CLTC range of 688 km. More impressive still the battery can add a 500 km range to the 007 in just 15 minutes with  peak charging power of 500 kW. On the other hand the 100 kWh Qilin (NCM) equipped version gets 870 km range. The 007 is the first Zeekr to actually provide 800V architecture.

Both a rear wheel drive and all-wheel drive version of the Zeekr 007 are available. Both use the same 310 kW (440 Nm torque) silicon carbide rear motor as in the all-out performance Zeekr 001 FR. In addition all-wheel drive versions add a 165 kW front motor providing an additional 270 Nm torque. This is enough to give the car a 2.84 seconds acceleration time against 5.4 seconds for the RWD version.

High-end versions of the car get a 90-inch light strip which can communicate messages to other road users using more than 2,400 LED lights. The headlight beams can reach for 189 meters.

The Zeekr 007 range starts at 209,900 yuan (29,200 USD) and goes up to 299,900 yuan (41,700 USD). Currently the Zeekr range is on sale in China and limited sales have begun in Europe with the brand also destined for Mexico. Zeekr is a premium all electric brand from Geely.
