Updated Zeekr 001 EV can achieve 10-80 per cent charging in less than 12 minutes

The quest to redefine electric vehicle (EV) charging has taken an electrifying turn with the debut of the updated Zeekr 001 EV, which has set a new benchmark for rapid recharging, promising to transform the landscape of electric mobility. Boasting an overwhelming peak charging rate of 546.4 kilowatts (kW), this Chinese-made electric car has shattered records. In a jaw-dropping display of efficiency, this EV demonstrated its potential by achieving a staggering 10-80 per cent charging in less than 12 minutes, propelling it to the forefront of the electric revolution.

The Zeekr 001's recharging efficiency has emerged as a big relief for prospective buyers as the sluggish pace of EV recharging has long been a stumbling block for those contemplating the switch from traditional internal combustion engine-powered vehicles.

At the core of this technological marvel lies the innovative CATL-sourced Shenxing battery that boasts a formidable 95-kWh of energy. This cutting-edge power source not only propels the vehicle to unprecedented charging speeds but also elevates its driving range to unparalleled heights. In a recent charging test conducted by the manufacturer, the Shenxing battery demonstrated its prowess by boosting the vehicle's range by a stunning 294 miles in merely five minutes, a feat hitherto unheard of in the realm of EVs.

However, the true potential lies in the battery's peak charging speed, a mind-boggling 546.4 kW, realized during rigorous testing with a Zeekr V3 fast charger. Maintaining a charging power of more than 540 kW between 10 and 35 per cent state of charge (SoC), the Zeekr 001 showcases unmatched efficiency and performance, setting a new standard for EV charging technology.

For those who might not be satisfied with just revolutionizing charging speeds, the CATL Shenxing battery also offers temperature control technology, ensuring optimal performance even in hostile conditions. With the ability to recharge to 80 per cent in less than half an hour or 30 minutes at temperatures as low as 14 degrees Fahrenheit, the Zeekr 001 EV defies conventional limitations, offering a glimpse into the future of electric transportation.

Amidst the awe of the automotive world, the upgraded Zeekr 001 EV emerges as a beacon of innovation, boldly pushing the boundaries to reshape the landscape of electric mobility. With every charge, it ignites a new era of convenience, efficiency, and sustainability, propelling us towards a cleaner and greener tomorrow.
