LDV is the first to market for an all-electric people mover, but the van won’t be a cheap proposition for those interested

LDV has pulled the covers off its first electric people mover, the Mifa 9, and it is likely to be the first of its kind to hit the Australian market.

Available in three trim levels, the Mifa 9 in electric form is priced from $106,000 before on-road costs. All variants are on sale now in Australia.

Pricing tops out at $131,000 before on-road costs for the Luxe variant, making the Mifa 9 electric one of the most expensive people movers available to buy in Australia.

The LDV Mifa 9 electric people mover is priced from $106,000

Although ICE-powered, a top-spec Kia Carnival Platinum is, in comparison, priced from $67,580 before on-road costs, making the step up to an all-electric Mifa 9 a hefty $38,420 premium.

That gap broadens further if the high-grade Mifa 9 Luxe is the car for you. It’s $63,000 more expensive than the Kia Carnival.
