Zeekr 009 Luxury Electric MPV from China

Chinese high-end electric brand Zeekr which comes under the umbrella of Geely, revealed its newest product earlier this month. A luxury electric MPV called the 009, it is perhaps an electrified answer to the likes of Kia Carnival.

009 is the second product by Zeekr after the 001 electric coupe, and is based on Geely’s Sustainable Experience Architecture (SEA) platform which also underpins the Zeekr 001, the Lotus Eletre, and the upcoming Polestar 5.

The Zeekr 009 MPV is the most-talked about vehicle in China right now, with many praising its daring design but an equal number of people criticizing the way it looks, particularly due to that enormous silver-plated grille up front. Geely calls the grille design “The Fountain of Light”, and it is fitted with 154 LED strips. The main headlights consisting of 3 units are positioned below, while the upper light signatures form in inverted U shape with the help of 5 dashed light bars.

The boxier styled MPV also boasts a number of interesting design features, for example the multi-spoke alloy wheels which shows kind of an outburst explosion with Zeekr written in between. Design details continue on the C-pillar, with a shark-fin door line and a 7-line silver decoration, topped by a silver colored lower roof line. There are sliding doors for rear seat passengers but the door handle gives a unified look, split between front and back door. There is a sunroof above the front seats and a much larger one above the second and third row.
