Not electric, not hybrid — but don’t be Mifa(d)

Riley Riley

LDV’s new Mifa people mover is coming, but it’s not the electric one – at least not yet.

Arriving this month Mifa comes in three grades – Mode, Executive and Luxe – powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine which delivers 160kW of power and 360Nm of torque, through an 8-speed Japanese Aisin automatic gearbox.

There’s no hybrid and no battery electric version, and no mention of them either.

Overseas it’s offered with the 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine or a 2.0-litre turbodiesel.

LDV describes Mifa as a people mover for the next generation.

It’s set to shake up its segment thanks to its sleek exterior styling, latest safety and technology features, and room for every passenger to travel in comfort and style no matter how far the journey.

“The all-new LDV Mifa is a glimpse into the future,” LDV’s Dinesh Chinappa said.

“Every new Mifa model will come with a significant level of standard safety equipment, convenient features, fuel-efficient powertrain and more for hard-working Australian families.”

“While it might not share the heart of its electric sibling, the MIFA 9, it does share the fundamentals of evolutionary design, passenger comfort, safety and more.

“It has advanced the people mover game significantly and we’re looking forward to redefining the segment that has, until now, been dominated by two brands.”

Mifa features a bold face framed by daytime running lights, wide stance and distinctive LED rear light signature.

Inside, comfort is a priority. Depending on variant, there is a choice of seven or eight luxurious seats.

They include six-way electrically adjustable captain’s chairs in the first and second row which can be configured for ease of access, while footrests and fold-out tray tables allow passengers to travel business class every day.

The safety story is a strong one with features including front and rear autonomous emergency braking (AEB), adaptive cruise control, rear collision warning, lane departure warning and speed assist system.

Full details of the all-new MIFA including specification, pricing and more will be revealed mid-November.

Also arriving this month is a fully electric version of the T60 ute and the eDeliver 9 large van.
