In June, ZEEKR announced its European market entry with the luxury shooting brake ZEEKR 001 and the urban compact luxury SUV ZEEKR X in Sweden and the Netherlands followed by Germany in September 2023. With the first deliveries starting later this year, ZEEKR customers will receive a welcome pack from ZEEKR Charge with a charging card and relevant information.
With the ZEEKR Charge service the ZEEKR drivers have access to over 550,000 charge points in 27 European countries. ZEEKR Charge, as part of ZEEKR’s comprehensive power service solution ZEEKR Power, will improve its charging service and provide customers with a better experience.

And that is exactly what we intend to do. Thus, we are delighted about our partnership with Plugsurfing, a reliable partner that helps us accelerate the shift to EVs by providing us with a service that will make e-mobility joyful for all,” says ZEEKR Europe CEO, Spiros Fotinos.
