An, also chief executive of Zeekr, added that the company will introduce an electric sedan under the Zeekr marque by the end of this year and expand its three-model lineup in 2024, bringing out two new sports utility vehicles. Gross margins for Geely Automobile Holdings Ltd., which operates Geely Galaxy, Lynk & Co, and Zeekr, fell to 14.4% as of June 30, down from 14.6% a year ago and 17.2% in the first half of 2021.
