The new Zeekr 001 will maintain its overall design in consistency with the current model. Notable changes include the addition of a laser radar at the upper center of the front windshield, expected to support advanced autonomous driving technology. Unlike the new Zeekr 007, the new Zeekr 001 retains the segmented “claw-like” headlights. Its front face adopts a similar style to the Zeekr 001 FR with a wider front spoiler, giving the entire front end a more aggressive look.

The vehicle features new multi-spoke aluminum alloy wheels. The brake caliper colors are in orange and gray. The dimensions of the new model are 4977/1999/1545 (1533) mm in length, width, and height, with a wheelbase of 3005mm.

Inside, a fully digital dashboard complements the large central touchscreen. The diameter of the touchscreen reaches 15 inches. It can turn to the driver or the front passenger. The vehicle is equipped with the Qualcomm 8295 chip. Also included are lever-type window controls, upgraded electronic door handles, and wireless charging.

The new model is expected to adopt 800V high-voltage charging, allowing a charge from 10% to 80% in 15 minutes. It will be offered with both rear-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive versions. The single-motor rear-wheel-drive version will have a maximum power of 310 kW that travels up to 705 km in range. The dual-motor all-wheel-drive variant will have a combined power of 580 kW with a range up to a 656 km range. The new Zeekr 001 can charge other vehicles with V2V function.

Commemorating 20 years since China’s F1 event in 2004, Zeekr just announced that China’s first F1 driver, Zhou Guanyu, has become the Chief Driving Officer for the new Zeekr 001. The former F1 World Champion Kimi Räikkönen has also joined Zeekr as the Chief Performance Advisor late last year whom oversaw the launch of the Zeekr 001 FR. The partnership with Zhou Guanyu will boost motorsports in China. As Zeekr’s first model, the Zeekr 001 is the sole Chinese model partnering with two F1 drivers.
