- Gasoline powered Mifa People Mover confirmed.
- Release locked in mid-November
- Space for seven or eight
LDV’s model range is expanding again with the addition of 2023 Mifa People MoverRivals Toyota Granvia and Kia Carnival.
The petrol-powered Mifa – called the G90 in China – will be sold alongside the electric Mifa 9, both set for an Australian release in mid-November 2022.
Pricing will be confirmed closer to the Mifa’s November release date, but the three-strong petrol-powered Mifa range could start from as little as $50K before on-road costs.
The Mifa is about 5.3 meters long and rides on a 3.2 meter wheelbase with room for seven or eight passengers, depending on trim.
“While it may not share the heart of its electric sibling, the Mifa 9, it shares the fundamentals of evolutionary design, passenger comfort, safety and more.
Dinesh Chapa, General Manager, LDV Australia, said, “It has significantly advanced the people mover game and we look forward to redefining a segment that has so far been dominated by two brands.”
LDV Mifa range
Final details are not yet locked in, but the Mifa range will consist of three variants: Mod, Executive, and Lux.
The lower-grade Mod and possibly the Executive are expected to offer seating for eight passengers, while the range-topping Luxe is likely to get premium leather upholstery. Power adjust captain’s chairs. In the first and second rows, fold-out tray tables and footrests.
Outside, the Mifa gets LED daytime running lights at the front, and full-width taillights to accentuate its size.
All Mifa grades will be equipped with forward and reverse AEB, rear cross-traffic alert, lane-departure warning, traffic sign recognition and adaptive cruise control.
Inside, China-market G90s feature wide screens on the dashboard, a floating center console, up to 10 screens and rear-seat entertainment.
We don’t know exactly what the final Australian-spec Mifa will look like. It will have the G90’s grill though. Images will arrive closer to release in mid-November to better describe the Australian-spec cars.
The combustion-powered Mifa range features a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol four-cylinder that produces 160kW of power and 360Nm of torque.
