The all-electric Zeekr X and Zeekr 001 have both been awarded a 5-star rating from Euro NCAP, the highest possible in one of the world’s most respected consumer safety assessments, which in 2024 was performed under more stringent protocols than in previous years. Both models have also received 5-star Green NCAP ratings. These results reflect the advanced safety features of Zeekr vehicles and their contributions towards sustainable development.

The Zeekr 001, the shooting brake, and Zeekr X, the compact luxury SUV, developed from the state-of-the-art the Sustainable Experience Architecture (SEA) platform for pure EVs, have been awarded the maximum safety ratings thanks to the inherently high levels of crash protection engineered into their body structures, together with advanced driver assistance functions, including a sophisticated Autonomous Emergency Braking system (AEB) that responds to vulnerable road users as well as to other vehicles, a Driver Monitoring System (DMS) that warns them if they show signs of fatigue or distraction, and a Child Presence Detection (CPD) system that alerts drivers to the presence of children or pets inadvertently left in the rear seat of the vehicle.

Both models also earned the highest ratings in the Green NCAP assessments. The Zeekr 001 and Zeekr X boast high energy efficiency and competitive performance in mitigating pollutant 1 Media Information emissions through technologies such as the intelligent thermal management systems with heat pump to reduce energy consumption and increase real-world range.

“Our success in both Euro NCAP and Green NCAP tests shows our consistent dedication to developing cars that excel in safety and energy efficiency”, said Giovanni Lanfranchi, CEO of Zeekr Technology Europe. “These top ratings are not just marks of distinction but are a clear reflection of our promise to keep developing technologies that serve Zeekr customers and continually elevate the standards of mobility”.

Zeekr Europe CEO, Spiros Fotinos, said: “We are delighted that the Zeekr 001 and Zeekr X have both been awarded Five-star Euro NCAP and Green NCAP ratings. The awards represent another milestone for our brand as we continue to strengthen our presence in Europe, and they demonstrate that our world-class EVs offer exceptional safety and efficiency as well as luxury, range, and performance.”
