Zeekr, Geely's electric vehicle brand, today unveiled the Zeekr M-Vision concept built on Zeekr's smart mobility platform, the SEA-M architecture, and said it will be ready for mass production in 2024.
The Zeekr M-Vision offers a spacious interior while eliminating the B-pillar. The model will lead the future of mobility, Zeekr said.
The SEA-M architecture is Zeekr's exclusive architecture for the future of smart mobility and is the world's first all-electric architecture developed specifically for driverless mobility.
The platform supports the creation of models with a wheelbase of 2,700 mm to 3,300 mm and flexible seating layouts.
The model is geared toward driverless application scenarios, can access L4 and above intelligent driving systems, and is compatible with a variety of driverless technology solutions, according to Zeekr.
The Zeekr M-Vision features a capsule design style with an electrically powered pair of doors with a maximum opening of 1.4 meters for easy passenger access.
Zeekr and driverless technology company Waymo's customized model based on the Zeekr M-Vision collaboration was officially unveiled today in Los Angeles, CA, following a partnership between the two companies late last year.
The unveiling of the customized model is a testament to Zeekr's R&D prowess and broad product commercialization potential, said the company's CEO, An Chonghui.
The model will be equipped with the latest generation of Waymo Driver driverless solution with L4 smart driving capability and will be put into commercial operation in the US, Zeekr said.
On December 29, 2021, Geely announced a partnership with Waymo in which Zeekr will develop all-electric vehicles for the latter.
The vehicles will be used in Waymo's ride-hailing service, Waymo One, and will be commercially available in the United States.
The vehicles will be designed and developed at Zeekr's CEVT (China Europe Vehicle Technology Centre) research and development facility in Gothenburg, Sweden, Geely said at the time.
