This explains why the Dreamer has a large boot space of 427 litres to boast even with the third row of seats deployed. Traditionally MPVs don’t have a lot of boot space with all their seats deployed.

Interestingly, the EREV version is tested on the WLTC measurement rather than the China-specific CLTC. Could this mean that Voyah has plans to export the MPV to other markets?

There isn’t a time in memory that doesn’t involve staring at cars. After discovering the excitement of watching Schumacher vs Hakkinen, Formula 1 became a major part of life. The love for cars and F1 ultimately led to a job with CAR Magazine. The untimely death of the magazine meant a hiatus from cars at lifestyle women’s magazine Marie Claire before another opportunity came knocking again.
