While acceleration figures have not been disclosed, the Z9 GT is said to reach a top speed of 240 kmph. However, its weight is substantial, tipping the scales at 2,875 kg, making it heavier than some luxury SUVs.

The battery pack specifications are yet to be announced, but it is expected to be sizable, utilising BYD's Blade design. The Z9 GT's dimensions further highlight its impressive stature, measuring 5,180 mm in length, 1,990 mm in width, and standing at 1,500 mm tall, with a wheelbase of 3,125 mm.

Visually, the Z9 GT features angular headlights, a sculpted bumper, and bold creases that add to its dramatic appeal. The rear of the Z9 GT gets unique LED tail lights, a roof spoiler, and a deployable secondary spoiler on the decklid, setting it apart from other shooting brake models. Since 2021, Denza has launched three new EVs: the D9 minivan and N7 and N8 crossovers. Z9 GT will be its fourth EV.
