Zeekr is a young Chinese brand launched by Geely Group in 2021. Its current model line comprises four models: the Zeekr X crossover, the Zeekr 001 liftback, the Zeekr 007 sedan, and the Zeekr 009 minivan. Today, Zeekr launched the latest addition to its line, the Zeekr 009 Glory Edition minivan, aimed at wealthy businessmen.

More on Zeekr 009 Glory Edition

The Zeekr 009 Glory Edition is based on the SEA architecture that underpins every other Zeekr-branded model. With a few exceptions, it follows the exterior styling of the ‘regular’ 009 minivan. The Glory Edition adopts new 20-inch wheels and a LiDAR sensor on the roof. It also comes with a blackened front grille, which is standard. The Zeekr 009 Glory Edition boasts hefty dimensions of 5217/2024/1812 mm and a wheelbase of 3205 mm.

Inside, the Zeekr 009 Glory Edition has four seats with a 2 + 2 layout. For clarity, the standard variant of this minivan has six seats with a 2 + 2 + 2 layout. The second row of the Zeekr 009 Glory Edition has two independent captain chairs with leg support. They are heated, ventilated, and have a massage function. A large center tunnel between the seats is equipped with a touchscreen, fridge, and two independent safes.

The main feature of the second row is a large 43-inch screen in front of the passengers. Zeekr has previously applied for patent images of this monitor’s frame. According to brand officials, it also acts as an additional stiffener, enhancing the 009’s torsional rigidity. Other interior upgrades include enhanced materials and a 31-speaker Yamaha sound system. Its suspension system also has a dual-chamber air suspension.

Zeekr 009 Glory Edition powertrain

The Zeekr 009 Glory Edition adopts the 800V platform of the all-new 001 liftback launched earlier this year. It offers a dual-motor 4WD with a 270-kW electric motor in the front and a 310-kW e-motor in the rear. The combined power output of this system reaches 580 kW (777 hp, 788 ps). The peak torque is 810 Nm, which is good for a zero-to-hundred acceleration time of 3.9 seconds. It makes the Zeekr 009 Glory Edition one of the quickest MPVs in the world.

The 4-seat minivan adopts a 108-kWh ternary NMC battery from CATL. The Zeekr 009 Glory Edition’s CLTC range is 702 km. Thanks to the 800V platform, it can charge from 10% to 80% in 11.5 minutes via 5C 560-kW charging. Another notable feature of the Zeekr 009 Glory Edition is a 60-kW discharge function. With this function, it can charge other electric vehicles.

Zeekr 009 Glory Edition price tag

The Zeekr 009 Glory Edition is available in a single variant at a price of 789,000 yuan (109,000 USD). It is 201,000 yuan (27,800 USD) more expensive than the top-trim level of the standard Zeekr 009. However, it is 29,000 yuan (4,000 USD) cheaper than the Volvo EM90, which is just a Zeekr 009 rebadge. Moreover, the Volvo EM90 offers a single electric motor and fewer functions. So, the Volvo minivan is clearly non-competitive.

The Zeekr 009 Glory Edition will start deliveries on May 19. Customers who book it for 50,000 yuan (6,900 USD) will enjoy a lifetime Zeekr AD autonomous driving subscription, lifetime roadside assistance, a 20-kW AC home charger, and a lifetime warranty for the first owner.

  1. 60-kW discharge function. That’s amazing, in case the charging stations are unavailable due to weather or national security reasons.

    • I don’t think Chinese citizens have experienced this like Americans have. They are constantly prepared for cyber grid attacks. China should be ready as well.
