Today, we’ll take a look at the #Zeekr, a car that’s generating a lot of interest. Make yourself comfortable, today we will talk about:
Salon and options
With the Z Sport package, the manufacturer has eliminated one of the main complaints of Zikr owners – the brakes.
But what makes Zikr truly interesting is its recovery. This feature allows you to maximize energy efficiency and charge while moving. Against this background, one can evaluate the quality and approach of the manufacturer to creating this electric car.
Zeekr 001 Power and Overclocking:
When it comes to performance, Zeekr is truly impressive. It has 536 horsepower and 768 Newton meters of torque. This makes it one of the fastest minivans in the world. It accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds, which is impressive.
Overall, the 001 is not just another Chinese car. It represents a quality solution with excellent braking, recuperation and outstanding performance. In the EV market, this is truly worth considering.
Friends, we continue to review the Zeekr, an electric car that is turning heads. Don’t forget to subscribe and like, there are still many interesting cars ahead!
But why is the 001 so special compared to other electric cars? The answer is simple: energy efficiency. During dynamic driving, its consumption is 22-23 kWh per 100 kilometers. This includes highway driving at 130 km/h, which is great. Even at maximum load, the 001 surprises with its efficiency. For comparison, on the same Tesla it is possible to achieve the same consumption only with economical driving; with more active driving, it will be much higher than the values on this 001.
Power reserve Zeekr 001:
The main impression from it is its real power reserve. With a 100 kW battery, it always offers a minimum of 400 kilometers, and with gentle driving – more than 500 kilometers. This is truly amazing!
Another feature of dhikr is the recovery system. You can adjust its strength and it is really effective. When you release the gas, it begins to actively charge the battery. And when braking, it can work even harder, allowing you to slow down without wearing out your brakes.
And, of course, the chassis and suspension of the Zikr deserve special attention. They’re so well tuned that Sport and Comfort modes feel completely different. In Comfort mode, you comfortably overcome uneven roads, as if on waves. And in Sport mode, you feel every bump you didn’t notice before.
Zikr can be compared to an Audi S8, but without the sound of the engine. It has a cool chassis and air suspension that make it unique on the road. Switching between modes is so noticeable that you really feel the difference.
The analogies with Audi and Mercedes are not accidental here. Zeekr truly brings together the best qualities of famous brands. It’s important to note that, despite all its softness, the 001 retains outstanding handling and stability at high speeds.
As such, it remains a versatile vehicle that can change its behavior depending on your preferences and road conditions. This is its main advantage and at the same time its weak point, but, of course, it deserves your attention.
This car is really fast, and the speed it can achieve can be a bit intimidating. It’s been a while since I felt this sensation, and I can say that I liked it. You have to step out of your comfort zone and test your personal limits and level of perception.
The Zikr has something unique in the world of electric vehicles – complete silence during acceleration. You accelerate quickly, but you don’t hear anything, you don’t get any acoustic feedback. It is clear that at this moment there is no roar of the engine, there is no tachometer needle that warns you about an imminent gear change, but there are also no imitations of sounds characteristic of modern electric cars. Just speed. And it makes you even more careful before turning because there are no audio cues and no sense of speed.
You feel out of your comfort zone because all the necessary information that would normally help you evaluate a situation has disappeared. No arrows, no sounds, no blinking instruments. You yourself must adapt to this new reality and rely on your instincts and vision. Now you’re accelerating to 150 km/h, and it’s time to assess what your next turn is.
It’s a bit unsettling, but it’s also extremely exciting. You step outside your comfort zone and explore your edges. These facets are not on the surface, and you have to explore them, immersed in this world without sound references.
Zeekr 001 interior:
The dhikr salon has been revised to include new combinations of colors and materials. The first impression may have been wrong, but after diving into the car you will notice how well thought out and cool everything looks.
Now let’s move on to the interior, which also deserves attention. At first glance it may seem boring and standard, but upon closer acquaintance you will understand that this is not so. So let’s talk about the salon.
The colours, materials and interior design create an impression of thoughtful luxury. Dhikr no longer seems boring. It looks appropriate and profitable. For those who prefer calmer color schemes, there are also options that will pleasantly surprise you.
Behind the wheel you’ll also find plenty of amenities, including anatomical seat adjustment and massage. These features allow you to create a comfortable sitting position and massage helps you relax during long trips.
The Head-Up Information Display is another highlight of the cabin and offers a ton of functionality. This allowed us to make the main screen small and neat. The screen quality and response are impressive. Some settings, such as adjusting the steering wheel and side mirrors via menu, could be more convenient, but overall the dhikr offers a high level of comfort and modern technology.
In the evening this car becomes even more interesting, especially inside. Various highlights appear here, which were worked on with special attention. The interior space almost resembles an amphitheater.
Taking into account all the sensors and displays in the cabin, controlling them is easy, without unnecessary problems. Gear shifting and other functions are also smooth and lag-free. This proves the attention paid to detail and comfort in the 001.
The rear seats are the real highlight of this model. There is plenty of space for passengers, including headroom. Being tall (your height is 188 cm) does not create any inconvenience. The seats can be adjusted and customized to suit your comfort, and the air suspension adds comfort.
It’s important to note that the 001 is a liftback and has a large trunk with quality upholstery. It also offers rear seat and backrest adjustment via air suspension, which adds to the comfort.
What impressed me was that the Zeekr offers an “off-road” mode that allows it to handle a variety of road conditions. This is especially surprising considering that it is an electric car. I decided to test his abilities, and he demonstrated excellent maneuverability and coped with many obstacles.
Disadvantages of Zeekr 001:
However, there are some nuances that should be taken into account. While driving on uneven terrain, I noticed that the car sometimes shook a little. This may be due to the fact that it is trying to contain its power and provide smooth movement. While a little shudder may seem like a drawback, overall the car feels stable and confident.

Results for Zeekr 001:
In the end, I was impressed with this car and am confident that it represents a significant part of the automotive world. It combines outstanding technical components, chassis settings and thoughtful design. These cars make you feel confident and happy with your choice.
Sometimes it seems that Chinese automakers never cease to amaze with new technical solutions and settings. Zeekr and Lynk&Co are prime examples of such innovation, and I’m sure they will delight their owners.
