Geely’s Zeekr has announced that the Zeekr 007 Performance achieved a lap time 1:41.740 at the Zhejiang Circuit. It surpasses the Xiaomi SU7 (1:42.163) to become the fifth fastest fully electric car. This performance places the Zeekr 007 Performance ahead of the Porsche Taycan Turbo S and Tesla Model S Plaid, ranking it 48th overall on the FIA-approved Zhejiang International Circuit.

The Zhejiang Circuit was designed by Apex Circuit Design and approved by the FIA as a Grade 2 circuit. It spans 3.2 kilometers and features a 22-meter elevation. It can be divided into two tracks, East and West, and includes 16 turns with varying angles and elevations.

The four-wheel drive performance version of the Zeekr 007 delivers 475 kW of peak motor power and 710 N·m of torque. It can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.84 seconds. It features 20-inch rims, high-performance tires, and a carbon fiber rear active diffuser.

Unlike its siblings, the Zeekr 007 Performance has enhanced stabilizer bars and stiffer suspensions (40% front, 25.5% rear) to improve dynamic control, aided by a CCD electromagnetic vibration reduction system for real-time adjustments. The TCS traction control reduces wheel slip, while Akebono calipers and Brembo discs ensure stable braking, with a stopping distance of 34.4 meters from 100 km/h.

The model has a “Kung Fu Yellow” exterior, a suede interior with orange stitching, and 18-way adaptive racing seats. The cockpit includes an exclusive HMI interface.

The Zeekr 007 station wagon is reportedly in the works after Zeekr was listed on the New York Stock Exchange in the US, raising 441 million on the IPO. This injection of funds will enable Zeekr to expand into international markets and diversify its product lineup. Zeekr’s current models include 001, 007, 009, and X.
