Ahead of its debut in Malaysia, the fully-electric Maxus Mifa 9 has been launched in Singapore, retailing at SGD282,999 (approx. RM983,371) inclusive of CoE, and seemingly in a single variant only. Based on the specifications of the Singapore-spec Maxus Mifa 9, it is the “Luxury” variant (in certain regions), although not named so for the country.
The official distributor for Maxus in Malaysia is Weststar Group which has recently teased the arrival of the Maxus Mifa 9 in Malaysia. If you haven’t known yet, the Maxus Mifa 9 is a luxury MPV that is slightly larger than the Toyota Alphard. It measures 5,270 mm long, 2,000 mm wide, and 1,840 mm tall, and with a wheelbase that measures 3,200 mm.
Offered in single variant only in Singapore, there are actually a total of three variants for the Maxus Mifa 9 available globally – “Elite”, “Luxury”, and “Premium”. The Mifa 9 in Singapore is specced very similarly to the “Luxury” variant. Its styling is typical of EVs from its region and it is a pretty decent-looking MPV.
Driving the Maxus Mifa 9 is a single electric motor that outputs 180 kW (244 hp) and 350 Nm. All power is sent to the front wheels only and the Mifa 9 manages a 0-100 km/h acceleration time in 9.2 seconds onward to a top speed of 180 km/h.
Powering the Singapore-spec Maxus Mifa 9 is a 90-kWh battery pack that provided 435 km of range (WLTP). The “Elite” and “Premium” variants can manage 440 km and 430 km of range respectively. Charging can be done at a maximum rate of 11 kW with AC charging and 120 kW with DC charging. The former charges the car from 5% to 100% in 8.5 hours while the latter charges the car from 30% to 80% in 30 minutes.
Inside, the Maxus Mifa 9 is equipped with a 12.3-inch infotainment display with Apple CarPlay and Android connectivity, a 7-inch digital dashboard, 7 USB ports, 8 speakers, and a 64-colour ambient lighting system.
Safety-wise, the Maxus Mifa 9 boasts safety features such as Speed Assist System (SAS), Intelligent Headlight Control (IHC), Emergency Lan Keeping Assist, Rear Autonomous Emergency Braking (RAEB), Rear Collision Warning (RCW), and driver fatigue monitor system. Teased through Weststar Group’s social media for now, we may soon witness the launch of the Maxus Mifa 9 in Malaysia.
