Holding Group's premium electric vehicle (EV) subsidiary, Zeekr, has signed a deal with a car dealer in Singapore to tap into the Southeast Asian country's automotive market.

Zeekr signed a partnership agreement with Premium Auto in Singapore on December 28, marking its entry into the country's automotive market, where it will offer local customers a luxury all-electric mobility experience, a press release said today.

Premium Auto, an Audi retail dealer, will build dedicated facilities for Zeekr that will not be shared with Audi vehicles, according to a December 29 report in Singapore's The Straits Times.

Zeekr's first showroom in Singapore will open in the first half of 2024 with 1,100 square meters of space in the Leng Kee area, a core automotive shopping district, the EV maker said today.

Zeekr will launch the right-hand drive versions of the Zeekr 009 MPV (Multi-Purpose Vehicle) and Zeekr X SUV in Singapore, with deliveries to begin in the third quarter of 2024, the company said.

Singapore, Hong Kong and Macau will be the first regions where Zeekr right-hand drive vehicles will be available.

On October 26, Zeekr signed a deal with local distributor Kam Lung Motor Group in Hong Kong to expand into the Hong Kong and Macau markets.

Zeekr's left-hand drive models would begin sales in Macau in late 2023, and the right-hand drive version would begin sales in Hong Kong and Macau in 2024, the company previously said.

Zeekr launched its efforts to enter the international market in 2023, unveiling its European strategy on the first day of the Shanghai auto show on April 18 and delivering the first European version of the Zeekr 001 on December 11 in the Netherlands.

To date, Zeekr's presence has covered several countries and regions in Europe, the Middle East and Central Asia.

Zeekr will have cumulative access to six European countries in 2024, and it expected its international presence to reach eight countries and regions in 2025, the company previously said.
