Global electric mobility technology brand ZEEKR has signed a memorandum of understanding with aftermarket specialist LKQ Fource as the two companies work towards establishing a partnership for vehicle servicing in the Netherlands. The intended partnership would see EV specialists selected from LKQ Fource’s extensive professional Lease Service Partner network providing nationwide coverage for all ZEEKR vehicle servicing requirements for private and fleet customers.

LKQ Fource has proven expertise in electric vehicle (EV) technology and will be an ideal partner to service and maintain ZEEKR’s range of state-of-the-art luxury EVs, comprising the ZEEKR 001 Shooting Brake and ZEEKR X Compact Urban SUV. (ZEEKR 001: Combined power consumption in kWh/100km: 18.2-18.5 (WLTP); Combined CO2 emissions in g/km: 0. ZEEKR X: Combined power consumption in kWh/100km: 16.5-17.5 (WLTP); Combined CO2 emissions in g/km: 0).

LKQ has its own unique training academy offering tailored courses to ensure its technicians thrive on the latest technical know-how, delivering the highest levels of quality and customer service, and this would complement the training provided by ZEEKR.

The intended partnership will see LKQ Fource ensuring that every ZEEKR vehicle be maintained to the highest standards as part of the ZEEKR Care service program. The LKQ Fource Lease Service Partner network will also support ZEEKR’s outstanding 5+5 years / 200,000 km warranty.

Stephen Dorman, Head of Customer Care at ZEEKR Europe, said: “ZEEKR stands for the highest quality and customer-friendliness, which of course also applies to service, maintenance and repair. This is why we want to partner with LKQ Fource in the Netherlands as we continue to expand our presence in Europe. Signing the memorandum of understanding with LKQ Fource is an important step in what we hope will be a strong, long-term partnership.”

“We’re very proud that ZEEKR has chosen LKQ Fource to be its service partner in the Netherlands. Signing the memorandum of understanding shows confidence and trust that we will be an efficient and customer-friendly partner within the ZEEKR Care service program. Through our network of high-quality workshops, we have the necessary infrastructure and expertise to offer first-rate service on these luxury electric vehicles, and we look forward to deepening our collaboration with ZEEKR.”, said Alex Gelbcke, CEO LKQ Benelux-France. 

ZEEKR Care and up to 5+5 Years / 200,000 km warranty

The ZEEKR Care service program with up to 10 years (5+5 years / 200,000 km) guarantee is a convenient way to ensure ZEEKR vehicles are kept perfectly maintained, with mobile technicians able to service or repair them at locations chosen by the customer, or through a visit to a ZEEKR Flagship store or networks operated by ZEEKR Care partners. For maximum flexibility, ZEEKR Care Service Packages can be purchased with the vehicle or at any time during the ownership period and is also fully transferable to the next customer. Reflecting ZEEKR’s exceptional quality standards, all models come with a 5+5 year warranty, comprising cover for the first five years or 100,000 km. This can then be extended for up to a further five years – and an overall total of 200,000 km as described in the ZEEKR guarantee terms. The high voltage battery is protected by an eight-year or 200,000 km warranty, whichever comes first.
