Many of you will remember Hyundai’s striking Staria minivan. A futuristic design, which unfortunately hides a model that is only available with a combustion engine. Now, inspired by this idea, the Chinese manufacturer Li Auto has presented a model with an even more spectacular design. but equipped with a 100% electric system.
This is a new example of minivans coming back to life, largely thanks to Chinese corporations who have recognized that there is still a very interesting market niche.
The new Li Mega It is a family model designed to travel, and to do so in a very comfortable way, in a space that offers up to three rows of seats, so we are talking about at least six or seven seats.
A proposal with an aerodynamic and quite sporty design, seen in a camouflaged test vehicle that left the Li Auto factory in Beijing, which makes it clear that the Chinese have more than learned how to design cars.
In the technical part there are not many details at the moment, but we know that the Mega will use one 800V architecture which, together with CATL’s Qilin battery, gives you access to ultra-fast charging with temperatures up to 5 °C.
This means you can make the most of the points that the brand itself has designed and installed throughout China. Some real superchargers that achieve this 500kW. According to the manufacturer, sufficient to restore 500 kilometers of autonomy in just 12 minutes.
Driving aids will not be missing from your appointment and we will find a level 3 autonomous system equipped with a lidar sensor which we can see protruding from the front part of the roof and which allows you to deal with complex situations, such as when driving in city traffic.
A model that will be in the price range of around 500,000 yuan 64,000 euros at the exchange rate, which places you in a premium segment. The best thing about it is that it is not a promotional prototype or that it will be released in a few years, but that the manufacturer has confirmed it Delivery will begin next March.
