ZEEKR 01 European Exclusive – Is this Hot Hatch the real deal?

Elliot takes the highly anticipated Zeekr 01 hot hatch for a spin to see if it lives up to the hype.

Could this first ever electric hot hatch offering from Geely take EVs to the next level? We sent Elliot to test drive a pre-production model to see if it lives up to the hype.

You don’t need to look further than the large tyres to see that the (formerly known as Lynk and Co., now) ZEEKR 01 has been designed to be a performance car, but it’s also pretty practical and could work for a family. It has nifty features, an impressive range, rapid charging and, with the strength and might of Geely behind it, this compelling EV looks destined for success.
