Mike CostelloCarExpert LDV’s new MIFA people mover is now launching in both petrol and electric forms, the latter of which is aimed primarily at corporate transport companies or hotels keen on running a greener fleet. The seven-seat MIFA 9 EV might not have the highest level of brand recognition – China’s LDV is best known for its cheap diesel vans and utes – but it’s an eye-catching shuttle brimming with features. “… The all-new MIFA 9 is set to be the new benchmark for early adopters, SMEs and corporate transport businesses looking to reduce their environmental footprint,” claims LDV general manager Dinesh Chinnappa. Camera Icon Pricing There is no getting around it: just like LDV’s eDeliver 9 EV van and eT60 EV ute, the MIFA 9 is expensive, especially next to its internal-combustion equivalent. There are three spec levels. MIFA 9 Mode: $106,000 MIFA 9 Luxe: $131,000 This makes each variant between $52,000 and $58,000 more expensive than an equivalent LDV MIFA petrol model in Mode, Executive and Luxe forms respectively. The only competitor at this point in time is the more van-like Mercedes-Benz eVito Tourer at $116,115. Camera Icon Drivetrain The MIFA 9 is powered by a 180kW and 350Nm permanent magnet synchronous motor driving the front wheels (front-wheel drive is standard), linked to Power, Normal and Eco drive settings. It’s powered by the electricity stored in a 90kWh lithium-ion battery pack, offering a claimed maximum WLTP-rated driving range of 430km to 440km (the more luxurious the grade you choose, the more weight there is, and the slight range reduction reflects this). According to LDV an 11kW charge at an AC wallbox with Type 2 port will fill the battery in about 8.5 hours on a three-phase installation, with a single-phase time not listed. Camera Icon Supplied Credit: CarExpert A 120kW charge on a DC charger is claimed to take the MIFA 9 from 30 per cent charged to 80 per cent in about 36 minutes. It has a rated towing capacity of just 1000kg, and the top speed is listed as 180km/h. Key figures Dimensions The LDV MIFA 9 measures 5270mm long, 2000mm wide and 1840mm tall on a 3200mm wheelbase, with 140mm of ground clearance and a 12.7m turning circle. It has 466L of luggage space with the second and third rows in use. With the third row not in use this increases to 1702L, and with the middle row also folded this increases to 2017L. Camera Icon Supplied Credit: CarExpert Tare weight is 2310kg on the Mode, 2410kg on the Executive and 2535kg on the Luxe – which means each is between 270kg and 305kg heavier than the equivalent petrol. Payloads vary from 525kg (Luxe) to 655kg (Mode) – meaning there’s no option to shuttle five or more heavy adults in the top grade. The suspension layout comprises MacPherson struts at the front and an independent multi-link setup at the rear. It has disc brakes all round (plus regenerative braking) and an electric power steering system. Camera Icon Servicing and warranty While the MIFA petrol now has a seven-year warranty, for some reason the MIFA 9’s warranty is five years or 200,000km (whichever comes first), with roadside assist. However the battery gets an eight-year/200,000km battery warranty. Servicing intervals are long: every two years or 30,000km.
