The intelligent matrix LED projection headlights, equipped with ADB adaptive high beam technology, utilize 64 independently controlled LEDs. These LED lights dynamically adjust the high beam matrix to provide optimal illumination without blinding oncoming traffic, significantly enhancing night driving safety. 

Additionally, the 1.47m integrated full-width tail lights forge a fierce and stylish appearance, further enhancing the Zeekr 001’s unique aesthetic appeal. This design not only adds to the car’s visual impact but also improves visibility and safety on the road.

Inside, the Zeekr also offers a luxurious and comfortable interior, effortlessly combining the latest digital cockpit technology with premium materials and beautiful finishes. This creates a relaxing space that makes every journey feel special, ensuring that drivers and passengers alike enjoy a superior level of comfort and sophistication.
