Exterior

Compared with Zeekr’s previous models, Zeekr 007 is quite different in appearance. The exterior design is personally designed by Stephen Raff’s team, and models such as Zeekr X and Zeekr 009 are all designed by him.

But this time on Zeekr 007, it is still obvious that drastic changes have been made. The familiar split headlights have been cancelled, and replaced by a new style of light set with a 90-inch light screen.

007 not only has a clamshell hood, but also a clamshell trunk, frameless rearview mirror, frameless doors, no door handle design on the outside of the car, high-end models with push-button door opening, and low-end models with hidden door handles. The taillights consist of two slender light strips, which are highly recognizable at night.

The overall interior of Zeekr 007 is still designed in a simple style. The main instrument panel consists of a 13-inch LCD instrument and a 15.05-inch 2.5K screen. The screen also has a small-angle rotation function. You only need to slide four fingers on the screen, and the screen will automatically turn according to the direction of the finger sliding.

Like the Zeekr X, the Zeekr 007 also uses a shift-like mechanism to make the center control area look more structured, and it has two 50-watt wireless charging panels.

The car is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8295 chip, which has advanced computing power and smoothness. The high-end version is equipped with a 35.5-inch AR-HUD, ventilation and heating massage for the front seats, 14 ambient lights, and a 21-speaker sound system developed by Zeekr.

The trunk volume is 462 liters and there is a hidden storage space. Zeekr 007 also has a front trunk, but the volume is only 32 liters, which can only hold some small items in daily life.

Driving Experience

Zeekr 007, Zeekr 001, Galaxy E8 and other models are all derived from SEA’s vast architecture. In terms of power, the entry-level model uses a rear-drive silicon carbide single motor with a maximum power of 310 kilowatts and an official acceleration time of 0-100 seconds of 5.4 seconds.

The high-end four-wheel-drive model is also equipped with a 165-kilowatt front motor, which accelerates from zero to 0-100km/h in 3.5 seconds. The editor feels that the power brought by a single motor is no problem for home use, and dual motors are completely redundant for daily use.

During driving, you will feel that the brake pedal position is relatively high and the stroke is relatively short, so you can get sufficient braking force with a light step. In terms of chassis, all Zeekr 007 series adopt the form of independent suspension with double wishbones in the front and five links in the rear, with 4-point hydraulic bushings as standard.

The high-end version also comes with a CCD electromagnetic vibration reduction system. It feels like 007 has a more sporty chassis tuning, which is not so radical, is softer when passing speed bumps, can filter out fine bumps well, and is relatively more friendly to the passengers in the car.

In terms of battery and battery life, Zeekr 007 has two battery types to choose from: lithium iron phosphate and ternary lithium. Lithium iron phosphate is 75.6 kWh, and the CLTC range of the entry-level model is 688 kilometers, while the CLTC range of the two-wheel drive model using 100 kWh ternary lithium battery is 870 kilometers, and the high-end four-wheel drive model is 770 kilometers.

Compared with the Tesla Model 3, NIO ET5, BYD Seal and other models of the same level, Zeekr 007 has certain advantages in terms of battery life, further reducing the driver’s range anxiety.

Assisted Driving

In terms of smart driving, the 007 high-end model is equipped with 1 lidar, 5 millimeter wave radars and 12 ultrasonic radars, as well as 2 NVIDIA DRIVE Orin chips with a computing power of 508TOPS. Zeekr officials said that the cars delivered next year can already use LCC and high-speed NZP functions.
