Li Auto’s Li MEGA MPV – A Roomier Ride for the Whole Fam

Li MEGA MPV - A Roomier Ride for the Whole Fam

Li Auto just launched their slick new 2024 Li MEGA multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) at their Spring event, and lemme tell ya, this ride looks like it can haul the whole fam in style. The midsize MEGA comes decked out with space and features for those needing more room to move. But does this “high-speed train” on wheels deliver on its hype? Let’s take a closer look under the hood.

For starters, the Li MEGA’s price starts at 559,800 yuan (roughly $80,000 USD), so we ain’t talkin’ cheap here. You get one configuration in your choice of four swanky exterior colors – including the two-toned panda white and elephant gray pearl paint jobs. Inside, the white and coffee leather interiors aim to keep that clean, contemporary vibe.

Now let’s get into the nitty-gritty – how big is this thing really? The dimensions ring in at 5350mm long, 1965mm wide, and 1850mm tall, with a wheelbase of 3300mm. For us non-metric folks, that shapes up to a roomy 17.5 feet long and 6.4 feet wide. Li Auto claims the MEGA’s spacious 3791mm interior beats out all other pure electric 4WD MPVs for usable space.

Seating seven passengers, the MEGA’s interior sticks with Li Auto’s signature style. We’re talkin’ 15.7 inch dual touchscreens, a 17-inch rear screen, and an instrument panel tucked into the steering wheel. The middle row feels like a spaceship with reclining “zero gravity” seats, a compressor fridge, and even built-in wireless phone chargers.

Looking to the back, the third row seats fold electronically and include both heating and cup holders. And in the front, the driver’s “magic carpet” seat has a massage feature with 16 different settings to choose from.

Okay, enough about cushy seats – what makes this motor move? The Li MEGA delivers some zippy stats: 400kW peak motor power, 542 Nm of torque, and a 0-100 km/h time of 5.5 seconds flat. Now we’re talkin’. LI AUTO equipped the MEGA with CATL’s new 5C Kirin batteries boasting a solid range of 710km on just one charge.

Li Auto claims their MPV uses energy more efficiently than any other 4WD EV, with intelligent tech like auto-adjusting air suspension and noise-reducing laminated glass. Safety also got an upgrade with 9 airbags, high-strength steel, and an anti-collision cushion in the back.

When it comes to smarts, this MPV packs punch with LiDAR, multi-angle cameras, and Qualcomm 8295 and dual Nvidia Orin-X chips powering its self-driving capabilities. Expect more autonomous tech to roll out later through over-the-air 5.2 software updates.

So is the Li MEGA the ideal family-friendly vehicle? For a starting price tag nearing 6 figures USD, it better deliver more than good looks. But with its spacious design, comfy seats, safety features, and intelligent driving modes, Li Auto new MPV checks a lot of boxes for those seeking luxury and space. MEGA may just be mega enough to fit the needs of bigger families looking to ride in both style and comfort.
