Awaiting its arrival, the Zeekr 001 is very popular: the fake sedan has won two drift and slalom records.

Zeekr is another brand of the Geely group, which owns Volvo, Polestar, Lotus or Lynk&Co. For its first model, the manufacturer decided to launch the 001, a crossover with a good presentation. But it’s no less powerful, as his two recent records suggest.

Before getting to the heart of the matter, a reminder of the statistics. Zeekr 001 is based on the SEA platform of the Chinese group, which allows it to carry two electric motors with a total power of 544 hp and 700 Nm of torque. A good rider that allows him 0-100 km / h. But it probably has the drivetrains that allow it to spread.

Thus, the crossover was able to win the title of the fastest run for an electric car, setting the radar at 207.996 km / h. Average speed maintained over a range of 50 m with a minimum drift angle of 30°. Fans of the title will notice that we are far from the last title won by the Nissan GT-R Nismo, which reached 304.96 km / h. But this is a car specially prepared for discipline, it is as useless as it is important. Also, the crossover leaves with the fastest slalom record for electricity with a time of 49.05 s.

These two records were achieved at the beginning of June at the Jiangsu track with driver Zhao Jungfeng behind the wheel. However, the brand, seemingly unconcerned about the competition, has just launched a press release on the Web. For its part, Porsche retains the record for the longest run with the Taycan.
