NVIDIA released a new generation of its DRIVE series chip named Thor. This chip will be officially launched in 2025, and the first car company to adopt it will be Geely's new energy vehicle marque Zeekr.
On September 13, the road test photos of Zeekr 009 were exposed. The new car is positioned as a pure electric MPV which has attracted much attention because it is the first model to carry the Kirin Battery manufactured by CATL.
On September 5, the lithium carbonate production agreement between power battery giant CATL and Yongxing Materials, a developer of new materials, was cancelled, and the two sides will seek other ways of working together.
Geely's premium sub-brand Zeekr and battery giant CATL jointly announced on August 27 that the EV firm is the first to adopt the latter's Kirin battery in its vehicles.

As Geely revealed at yesterday's interim results conference, Zeekr will come out with two new products in the second half of 2022. In addition to the newly announced MPV, the Zeekr 009, the other one is the Zeekr BX1E.
