New Zeekr 01: the “old” Lynk & Co Zero with a new name…
Geely just felt the need (gain) to create yet another brand. This one is called ZEEKR. And apparently, will concentrate on EV.
Last year, their Lynk & Co brand (remember, the one that was supposed to take the world by storm a few years ago…) showed us a really cool concept version of their first electric model: the Zero. (bottom pic)
that concept just became the new brand’s first model, the Zeekr 01.
It looks exactly the same as the one that was supposed to be a Lynk & Co, except for the wheels. It even has the signature Lynk & Co front end/headlights design.
No matter what they call it, it seems like a very nice-looking car.
Something that could compete with the Model 3 over here. But also with the Mustang Mach-e and the new Kia EV6.
Maybe they should try the new Zeekr brand through Volvo dealers. As a cheaper brand?
The Volvo/Polestar EVs are, so far, really expensive…

Gorgeous looking car, especially those rims. Why not just call in the Lynk? Far better than the Zeeker.
Seems like it just debuted in Europe for sale.
What happened to the Lynk & Co brand?
Something doesn't seem right for them to go ahead and do this.
I only trust Japanese and the recent Korean examples from both Kia and Hyundai.
Lynk & Co refers to the line of hybrid/phev cars, and the 01 model is on sale in Europe now. Early reviews seem very positive.
Zeekr refers to the new line of EVs.
This thing and the new Hyundai and Kia EV’s all look like design proposals for the same car. I guess that’s the shape of things to come.
Geely has so much capital and knowledge from Volvo. It's a real shame they haven't done anything productive with it. Hopefully they learn that fewer brands is the better way to go also, less confusion.
Everyone and their grandma are starting to start up EV companies it seems. This one has a similar front end design to the Kia EV6. However the total design execution is better inside and out.
Agree. Just call it Lynk. Zeekr is weird.
a better Citroen than the current Citroen models.. great design. price it right ($33K-$45K) and it should sell like crazy. Go head-to-head against Tesla Model 3… very little chance. And don't go higher..
From certain angles it looks like a Panamera.
