The Maxus MIFA 9
The Maxus MIFA 9 is the first passenger automobile from the Chinese company Maxus to be launched in the United Kingdom. This vehicle is an electric MPV that will be available for purchase in early 2023. MIFA is a new mode of public transportation that stands for maximum intelligence, friendliness, and aesthetic values. It's a full-size electric MPV based on a platform that SAIC, (the car's parent company), claims may be used in future SUVs and pickup trucks.
Well. Take a look at this thing. It has electric middle-row seats that are controlled by a touchscreen.
What’s include in?
- Electric MPVs we’ll be sold under the Van brand.
- MIFA 9 accommodate up to eight people.
- Claims to have a driving range of 250 miles.
The Maxus MIFA 9 electric MPV at CV show
The MIFA 9 made its debut in the UK at the 2022 CV Show in Birmingham, with the T90EV electric pickup truck. The MIFA 9 is a full-size MPV measuring 5.3 meters in length, with a seven-seat arrangement in a 2-2-3 format similar to the Volkswagen Multivan and the former Chrysler Grand Voyager.
What’s more features about it?
There are electrically-operated sliding doors and a power-operated tailgate to emphasize the MIFA 9's premium goals, while the middle row has individual executive-style sitting on floor rails that can be shifted to increase legroom as needed. The MIFA 9 has a touchscreen display and digital dial on the front, and Maxus claims the MPV has a 'intelligent driving maid' that detects your driving style based on data and ‘scene driving,' although this isn't for everyday use.
Let’s talk about other things: The MIFA 9 is powered by a single electric motor that produces 241bhp and 350Nm of torque. This is coupled to a 93-kilowatt-hour battery. Maxus is claiming a range of up to 323 miles on a full charge based on NEDC testing, but anticipate the actual WLTP figure to be lower.
The charging capabilities were not specified, but knowing that SAIC is also the parent firm of MG, There's no reason to believe Maxus will employ the same charging technology as the rest of the corporation.
Should we be concerned about this?
Furthermore, SAIC isn't to be sneered at — this is the Chinese conglomerate that also controls MG, and whatever you think of the MG brand, its EV technology isn't half awful. There are now no full-fledged electric MPVs available, with the exception of van-based models, therefore there could be a demand for a vehicle like the MIFA. Even if it isn't a particularly enormous one.
Moreover, it is on its way. Pricing will be revealed in July 2022, orders will be accepted in August, and construction for the UK market should begin in September. Early in 2023, the first deliveries are expected. As a result, if the pricing is right, this might be another sleeper hit. Maxus will also be the first to market in the United Kingdom with a 100 percent electric pickup in 2023.
