Zeekr has shown off the first images of its third model, a small crossover called the X, bucking the Chinese brand’s digital naming scheme. Zeekr is an electric brand owned by Chinese automaker Geely, which also owns 82% of Volvo and 51% of Lotus. A recent report from Reuters Volvo is claimed to be developing an electric truck for Asian markets based on the Zeekr 009, which is the company’s second model after the 001 wagon.

While Zeekr vehicles are currently sold only in China, the design of the X crossover was created at the company’s facility in Gothenburg, Sweden, which is also the location of Volvo’s global headquarters.

The two-part headlights echo the 001’s front fascia (which borrowed cues from the Lynk & Co brand jointly owned by Geely and Volvo), but the sharp angular creases in the bodywork represent a departure from the smooth 001 and slab-side 009. Zeekr also touts doors without Frame and side mirrors, which improve the aerodynamics of the crossover.
