Zeekr will push Zeekr OS 1.1.1 from February 12 and offer Zeekr OS 2.0 Beta with driver assistance system to internal test users from February 15.
Zeekr, Geely's premium electric vehicle brand, will soon deliver its first major OTA update to the Zeekr 001, upgrading the Zeekr OS from version 1.0 to 1.1.
The update covers 34 ECU units and provides experience enhancements in a number of areas including voice, navigation, energy consumption, third-party software, vehicle display and interaction, according to the company.
The update will address many of the features that users have previously complained about, including the inability to manually open and close the power-controlled automatic doors.
The update will allow users to open and close the doors manually, and the window glass will automatically raise when the vehicle is locked. In addition, features including drive mode memory, seat memory, and light show have been optimized.
Starting February 12, Zeekr will begin pushing Zeekr OS version 1.1.1 to users.
From February 15, Zeekr OS 2.0 Beta, which includes the first features of Zeekr's intelligent driver assistance system ZAD, will be available to "OTA Pioneer Experience Testers".
Zeekr will work with the "OTA Pioneer Experience Testers" to complete final testing and further optimization, the company said.
The optimized Zeekr OS version 2.0 will be rolled out to all users after the Zeekr OS version 1.1.1 rollout is complete, it said.

Supply chain conditions are already shifting in a positive direction, factory capacity is steadily increasing, and delivery rates for all versions of the Zeekr 001 will increase, the company said.
