Zeekr, the premium brand of Chinese automaker Geely, has made its paperwork for an IPO in the US public, Reuters reported.

It came a year after Zeekr announced it had confidentially filed for a US IPO.

If successful, it will be the first major Chinese listing in the US, following China’s effective ban of foreign IPOs.

In February this year, Zeekr was valued at US$13bn.

It is hoping to raise over $1bn but Reuters sources said it was unlikely to breach that mark.

Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley are the lead underwriters for the IPO.
