LDV is the first to market for an all-electric people mover, but the van won’t be a cheap proposition for those interested
Available in three trim levels, the Mifa 9 in electric form is priced from $106,000 before on-road costs. All variants are on sale now in Australia.
Pricing tops out at $131,000 before on-road costs for the Luxe variant, making the Mifa 9 electric one of the most expensive people movers available to buy in Australia.
Although ICE-powered, a top-spec Kia Carnival Platinum is, in comparison, priced from $67,580 before on-road costs, making the step up to an all-electric Mifa 9 a hefty $38,420 premium.
That gap broadens further if the high-grade Mifa 9 Luxe is the car for you. It’s $63,000 more expensive than the Kia Carnival.
All Mifa 9 electric people movers are fitted with a 90kWh battery pack that feeds power to a single electric motor. This unit produces outputs of 180kW/350Nm and powers the front wheels exclusively.
LDV says that the electric Mifa 9 consumes energy at a rate of 21.3-21.8kWh/100km.
Standard equipment on the people mover includes a 7.0-inch instrument display, a 12.3-inch central touchscreen with wired Apple CarPlay, a multi-function leather and heated steering wheel, a wireless phone charger and a digital rear-view mirror.
Either 18- or 19-inch wheels are available for the Mifa 9, along with power sliding doors on Executive and Luxe variants. A 2-2-3 seating arrangement is standard, however the Luxe features captain’s chairs with heating, cooling, massage and reclining functions.
Fold out tray tables, multi-zone climate control, seven USB ports and the option of a six-, eight- or 12-speaker sound system will help keep the kids entertained.
Along with driver, passenger, side and full-length curtain airbags, the LDV Mifa 9 also comes standard with blind-spot detection, AEB, adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning and lane-change assist, a fatigue reminder system, rear collision warning, speed assist and full LED adaptive headlights.
All prices listed are before on-road costs.
