MAXUS displayed the first full electric MPV on the market at the recent IAA Transportation Show in Hanover, Germany.
The Chinese SAIC-owned brand showed off its MIFA 9 seven-seater MPV among the rest of its electric vehicle range.
Maxus says the MIFA 9 acronym reflects the vehicle‘s key attributes: Maximum, Intelligent, Friendly and Artistic.
The company says that the vehicle’s platform can also be used as the basis for SUVs and pick-ups.
Maxus says the MIFA 9 has a 369 mile range – that’s on the WLTP City cycle, just to clarify – and the large 5.27m body offers accommodation for seven people.
It’s just not capacity that the MIFA 9 offers, but new technology, SAIC Maxus says the high spec display vehicle offered the industry’s first ‘intelligent driving housekeeper’, which automatically recognises driving style and adapts the vehicle to suit.
Maxus Rivervale, a retailer of the Maxus brand, is offering leasing brokers the opportunity to order the new Maxus MPV through them – and get the service they expect from a supplier that knows how to treat brokers.
Leasing brokers can order MIFA 9 now from Rivervale Maxus, with delivery in Q1 2023.
