Only a couple weeks after first teasing the general public with shadowy pictures of its second EV mannequin, Zeekr has shared a number of extra pictures of its luxurious multi-purpose car (MPV). Whereas many right here within the states would name this a glorified minivan, the ZEEKR 009 will be a part of a rising phase of luxurious MPVs in China.
Zeekr is one in all many younger luxurious EV automotive manufacturers in China, established in March of 2021 by Zhejiang Geely Holding Group Co., Ltd – higher often called Geely. Geely added Zeekr to its EV repertoire as a high-end model to compete with automakers like Tesla in China.
The corporate’s flagship EV – the ZEEKR 001 – began deliveries in China within the fall of 2021. Deliveries have ramped up previous 30,000 items to this point, regardless of COVID-19 lockdowns and provide chain constraints rocking the EV manufacturing abroad.
In lieu of such hurdles, Zeekr stays assured in its plans to ultimately enter the market in both North America and the EU. Along with the 001, that entry may now embrace a second EV known as the ZEEKR 009. The model teased images of the MPV in mid-July, and has now adopted up with extra pictures that really embrace daylight.

Zeekr posted the next pictures of the 009 to its Weibo page with the next caption (translated):
ZEEKR 009 wanting on the world and being born with a coronary heart that’s removed from the world.
Take from that what you’ll. One thing may actually be misplaced in translation right here, however sadly, that pseudo-aspirational sentence is about all we’ve gotten with these pictures.
We do know that the ZEEKR 009 will sit atop Geely’s Sustainable Expertise Structure (SEA) platform – an open-source EV chassis base unveiled final fall.
As for 009 supply timing? Effectively Zeekr is just saying “coming quickly.” We are going to make sure to share extra particulars as they’re made public.
