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

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

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.
