Zeekr is a high-end electric brand under the Geely Group. It sells both domestically and globally. The Zeekr model line currently comprises four models: 001 liftback, 009 MPV, X crossover, and 007 sedan. This year, Zeekr will launch two more models known by their codenames: the CM2E minivan and the CX1E SUV. Previously, we have covered the upcoming Zeekr’s MPV. Now, it’s time to speak about the newest crossover.

Zeekr CX1E spy shots

The Zeekr CX1E was spied during road tests wearing heavy camouflage. However, it is clear the new model adopts the Hidden Energy design language first introduced by the Zeekr 007 sedan. We can tell it by the smooth bonnet line and frameless side view mirrors.

From the side, the Zeekr CX1E features slanted D-pillars and a sloped roofline. Its doors have retractable handles. The top trim level CX1E will likely have buttons instead of handles. Speaking about the doors of the new crossover, they are frameless. Another fine detail of this crossover’s exterior styling is the five-spoke rims.

Inside, the Zeekr CX1E stays in line with the 007 sedan. It has the same main screen and instrument panel. But it features a new steering wheel with three spokes and flattened upper and lower sides. The gear selector sits behind the wheel. The rest of the interior is hidden.

    • CM2E and CX1E seem to be development codes, the cars likely won’t be called like this. X is a bit strange, yes. Maybe it was originally planned as a Lynk&Co (it looks like one) and was then changed to Zeekr but didn’t fit into the naming scheme. I don’t know.
