July 07, 2024 – Alike Editorial

The Autohub Group of Companies officially launches Zeekr, a global intelligent premium electric mobility technology brand, in the Philippines, reinforcing its commitment to providing and promoting sustainable mobility solutions in the Philippines. 

Graced by the Autohub Group’s President Mr. Willy Tee Ten and Zeekr’s ASEAN Leader Mr. Alex Bao, the grand launch is the first of many markers of progress of the Autohub Group’s partnership with the leading electric vehicle manufacturer under the Geely Holding Group. 

Held at the Bonifacio High Street Amphitheatre at Bonifacio Global City, Taguig, the grand launch showcased Zeekr’s lineup of state-of-the-art electric sedans and SUVs, which are designed to deliver exceptional performance, advanced technology, and unparalleled driving experiences. Making their debut in the Philippines are the Zeekr 001 Long Range, Zeekr 001 Privilege, Zeekr X Premium, and Zeekr X Privilege.

“The Zeekr vehicles that we are launching today, which push the boundaries of electric vehicle technology, represent the Autohub Group’s commitment to introducing future-forward and sustainable mobility solutions that are tailor-fit to the Philippine market,” says Willy Tee Ten. “This grand launch marks only the beginning of an even stronger partnership with Zeekr to deliver the future of driving.”

Central to Zeekr are its lightning-fast charging times and safety functions, positioning it as a premier sustainable mobility solution. For instance, the Zeekr 001’s charging port boasts a capacity of up to 200kW, allowing you to charge the vehicle from 10% to 80% in just 30 minutes.

“The launch of these Zeekr vehicles today will definitely accelerate the shift toward electric mobility solutions in the Philippines, which is a key market for us at Zeekr,” says Alex Bao. “We are confident that the Autohub Group, with its proven track record and strong market presence, can help push the Philippines toward more sustainable solutions and deliver more innovative products to Filipino consumers.” 

The intelligent matrix LED projection headlights, equipped with ADB adaptive high beam technology, utilize 64 independently controlled LEDs. These LED lights dynamically adjust the high beam matrix to provide optimal illumination without blinding oncoming traffic, significantly enhancing night driving safety. 

Additionally, the 1.47m integrated full-width tail lights forge a fierce and stylish appearance, further enhancing the Zeekr 001's unique aesthetic appeal. This design not only adds to the car's visual impact but also improves visibility and safety on the road.

Inside, the Zeekr also offers a luxurious and comfortable interior, effortlessly combining the latest digital cockpit technology with premium materials and beautiful finishes. This creates a relaxing space that makes every journey feel special, ensuring that drivers and passengers alike enjoy a superior level of comfort and sophistication.

The 4 soft-close doors with frameless windows add another layer of refinement and convenience, enhancing the vehicle’s premium feel. These doors close gently and securely, providing both ease of use and a quieter cabin environment.

The Zeekr 001 2024—as well as the Zeekr X 2024—have also achieved prestigious 5-star ratings from the European New Car Assessment Program (Euro NCAP), setting a new benchmark in automotive safety and luxury.
