A new compact electric crossover or SUV in the premium segment, this is the Zeekr X.
Yeah, you don’t have to, but you can use some fun features, but make no mistake, they mean
serious business because at that price point, below €50,000 for a fully packed premium
compact electric SUV or a crossover, this is pretty much unchallenged when it arrives
the market now, yeah, next to the Volvo EX30.

Let’s take a look here at the front, vertical daytime running light integration, a lot of
different angles.
They have a European design and development team.
They will have a European headquarters in Amsterdam and here in Gothenburg, Sweden,
actually, they also have their design studio next actually to, not so far away, the Volvo
headquarters and plant.
So, indeed, this European approach is what sets them apart to the other manufacturers
that are coming to Europe now.
Length, RWD vs AWD
The length is at 4.43m or 174 inches.
It’s a little bit longer, also a little bit
longer in wheelbase than the Volvo EX30, but definitely totally comparable.
There will either be a rear-wheel-drive version
with 5.6 seconds in the acceleration figure or all-wheel-drive version, that means electric
motor in the rear and in the front, then at 3.8 seconds in the acceleration figure and
that is, yeah, already performance car-alike
and remember, still keeping that very low price.
Design-wise here, you can see this is this rather spectacular black roof, so it’s kind
of like split in this contrasting way and this beige color here, you can see, is one
of actually four colors you can pick, so there’s a little bit Tesla philosophy, they
try to reduce the choices you have, but it
will be actually sufficient, I can tell you.

Wheels, 19-inch or here optional 20-inch wheels in this Spyder design dual-tone.
Battery, range and recharging
Battery size is at 69 kilowatt-hours gross, somewhat 66 kilowatt-hours net, and recharging,
that’s actually quite cool, always 22 kilowatt charging AC, DC charging at 150 kilowatt peak,
so it takes 29 minutes from 10% to 80% state of charge.
And here in the highest trim, it’s actually fun with the B-pillar, you see at the moment
it’s black, but there’s this screen integrated,
so when I open the charging lid, already appears
here, and when I put in the charging cable, it shows me the state of charge actually,
and also for the pet mode, there is a display then.

Rear and lighting signatures

And towards the rear, we have another spectacular
light signature all the way across, the Zica logo is illuminated here in the rear.
For your real eye, it looks pretty cool because it has the three-dimensional depth, on camera,
it looks a little bit weird or maybe like out of focus, but it’s actually not when you
take a real look at it.
Top speed is 190 kilometers an hour or 120 miles an hour, and it also has towing capacity
at 1.6 tons.
Turning indicator show, you can see here, it gets replaced right here, it looks quite
cool as well, of course, also at the side here underneath the outside mirrors.
In the rear, very visible in a time where more and more turning indicators in the rear
get tinier and tinier, I think this is definitely visible and also has this cascading effect.
Is there a frunk?
Yes, there is, small, but definitely fits a charging cable.
Interior: key and doors
You will have three options to open and close
the vehicle, there’s a key card, you can use
a smartphone or then here this more classic key fob, but in a more unique design, and
we can see here, when we open or close the vehicle, these flush door handles go in and
out, and when they are opened like this, then you can grab in, and there we go, door closing
sound, it’s frameless, but although it’s frameless, it has a really good door closing sound.

Look at that here, also the panel gaps, so all the European experience they have and
also from the Volvo and Polestar brand obviously pays off.
Then, inside of the doors, you have high-grade leatherette everywhere, also here with some
perforation, will also be backlit, this is a bright blue color scheme mix actually, this
will be the electric way to open and close, like open the door from the inside.
Steering and seat comfort
Their philosophy is also to go completely animal-free and sustainable in the whole interior,
and I think, well, I mean, this color scheme here, it really looks very premium, the quality
of the material, it’s really soft perforation here, cooling and heating is available, so,
yeah, the first quality impression and also the visual one is really very good.
Seating position, it’s a small vehicle, but offers decent seating comfort here also for
tall people, 189 or 6’2″, and to the panoramic glass roof, a fixed one, there’s plenty of
space left, even here to the side, covered in microfiber, this whole ceiling, and the
seat comfort, like from the material and so on, wow, I mean, if you compare it to the
Volvo EX30, this one here actually has a better
quality, better build quality impression, that’s something definitely.
