With a new studio in Shanghai, Zeekr is looking to align itself more closely with its biggest market. Heading up the studio is Javier Garcia-Gallardo and Car Design News spoke to the designer about his new role and remit. 

Car Design News: Tell us me a little bit about the new studio and your role there.

Javier Garcia-Gallardo: We started Zeekr design around two years and three months ago with a completely new team. Initially, it was a scoop out from the original Lynk & Co design team with just a couple of projects on the lineup.
