Zeekr 007: 5th Fastest FIA Electric Car!


Geely’s Zeekr has made waves in the electric vehicle (EV) world with its Zeekr 007 Performance model achieving a lap time of 1:41.740 at the Zhejiang Circuit, surpassing the Xiaomi SU7 to become the fifth fastest fully electric car on an FIA-approved circuit.

Why does it matter?

This remarkable performance places the Zeekr 007 ahead of prestigious models such as the Porsche Taycan Turbo S and the Tesla Model S Plaid, ranking an impressive 48th overall at the Zhejiang International Circuit. The circuit, designed by Apex Circuit Design and approved by the FIA as a Grade 2 circuit, offers a challenging 3.2-kilometer track with 16 turns of varying angles and elevations.

The Zeekr 007 Performance boasts a powerful four-wheel-drive system delivering 475 kW of peak motor power and 710 N·m of torque. With a lightning-fast acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.84 seconds, this model features advanced features such as enhanced stabilizer bars, stiffer suspensions, and a CCD electromagnetic vibration reduction system for optimal dynamic control.

In terms of design and performance, the Zeekr 007 Performance stands out with its unique “Kung Fu Yellow” exterior, high-performance tires, and carbon fiber rear active diffuser. Inside, drivers will enjoy a luxurious suede interior with orange stitching, 18-way adaptive racing seats, and an exclusive HMI interface in the cockpit. The model also ensures safety with TCS traction control, Akebono calipers, and Brembo discs for stable braking within a stopping distance of 34.4 meters from 100 km/h.

How is it going to shape the future?

Beyond its current success, Zeekr has ambitious plans for the future. The company is rumored to be working on a station wagon version of the Zeekr 007 following its listing on the New York Stock Exchange, which raised an impressive $441 million in its IPO. This financial boost will enable Zeekr to expand into international markets and diversify its product lineup, which currently includes models such as 001, 007, 009, and X. The Zeekr 007’s performance milestone not only showcases its impressive capabilities but also signals the brand’s intent to continue pushing the boundaries of EV technology and innovation.
