The first Zeekr 001 FR sports car was delivered to its owner in Zhengzhou, Henan. The name of the owner is Jiang Dashuai. Previously, he has bought every other Zeekr model, so the 001 FR has become his fourth Zeekr-branded car. Mr. Jiang met with Kimi Raikkonen and took a photo with a Formula-1 winner.
According to Jiang Dashuai, he took part in the test drive of the Zeekr 001 FR on November 1. During the event, he was impressed with its power output and the ZVC torque control system. After the price was unveiled, he immediately locked the order. Mr. Jiang mentioned that the quality of the car justified the cost of 769,000 yuan (105,800 USD).
Currently, Jiang Dashuai owns Zeekr 001 liftback, Zeekr X SUV, Zeekr 009 MPV, and Zeekr 001 FR. He is probably the main fan of the Geely Group’s brand. So, he has deserved to become the very first owner of the 001 FR. Other 98 owners will receive their vehicles in silver color later this month. The 001 FR also has the option with a gray shade (available for 50,000 yuan extra). But it will start deliveries next month. The monthly volume of the Zeekr 001 FR is limited to 99 units per month.
