  • ZEEKR unveils EV battery cell and pack technologies developed by in-house engineering team
  • The new LFP battery supports ultra-fast charging enhanced by 800V electrical system
  • With the new battery technologies the vehicle will be able to charge 500 kilometers of driving range within 15 minutes
  • The ZEEKR 007 sedan will be the first model to be equipped with the new battery
  • ZEEKR will operate 1,000 ultra-fasting charging stations in 2024

2023 December 14th, Quzhou – Global electric mobility technology company ZEEKR is unveiling new electric vehicle battery technologies that can support ultra-fast charging, high energy density and excellent safety.

The lithium-iron phosphate (LFP) battery cell and pack technologies are developed by ZEEKR’s in-house battery research and development team. Enhanced by 800V electrical system, an electric vehicle with ZEEKR’s new technologies can charge 500 kilometers of driving range within 15 minutes. Even at low temperature in winter, the charging performance of ZEEKR vehicles with new batteries outperforms many competitors.

LFP batteries are traditionally regarded by the industry to have lower energy density in comparison with nickel-manganese-cobalt (NMC) batteries at the cell level. In order to tackle that, ZEEKR’s engineers carefully designed the battery pack for the new LFP to achieve high energy density at the pack level. Thanks to the application of newly-developed materials and simplified structural design, the volume utilization of the new battery pack reaches 83.7%, higher than many global peers.

The excellent energy density does not come with compromise in safety, the packs have passed six strict safety tests including nail penetration conducted by the National Motor Vehicle Quality Inspection and Testing Center.

The ZEEKR 007 pure electric premium sedan will be the first model to be equipped with the new batteries with several vehicle models to follow. Deliveries of the ZEEKR 007 will start in January 2024.

To provide the best charging experience to customers, ZEEKR is rapidly expanding its ultra-fast charging infrastructure. By the end of November, ZEEKR has opened 401 ultra-fast charging stations in China with over 2,200 charging piles that have 360 kilowatts of power. ZEEKR plans to expand the network to 1,000 ultra-fast charging stations in 2024 and will be operating over 10,000 ultra-fast charging piles in 2026.
