The sales target set for 2022 represents a growth of around 1,065% compared to the delivery volume for the year of 2021. According to ZEEKR, over 6,000 ZEEKR 001s were delivered last year, 2,012 and 3,796 units of which were sold in November and December respectively.
ZEEKR currently has only one production model, the ZEEKR 001 (in three trim level), for sale, but the lineup will expand to 7 models in total by 2025.
As for overseas offensive, ZEEKR will begin export of the ZEEKR 001 cars to the EU (European Union) market in early 2023, and expects the export volume to hit 100,000 units annually by 2025.
In August 2021, Geely Auto Group released its new five-year plan, under which ZEEKR is expected to contribute around 650,000 vehicles to its annual sales by 2025.
An Conghui, CEO of ZEEKR, noted the application of the SEA (the Sustainable Experience Architecture) module platform can greatly shorten the R&D and production period for new models, and also support ZEEKR in rolling out models of different segments into the market with a higher efficiency. Besides, the smart factory in Ningbo, which currently features a designed production capacity of 300,000 vehicles per year, will shore up ZEEKR’s production and delivery with high level of automation and intelligence.
