MG Maxus 9 EV is launched in Thailand. The British brand has badge-engineered a Maxus Mifa 9 (showcased at 2023 Auto Expo in India) as Maxus 9. Scratched your head? Yes, Maxus is the name of the manufacturer that made the vehicle, Mifa 9. In Thailand, MG has chosen the name of the manufacturer as the name of the model.

Except for branding, every square inch is identical between Maxus Mifa 9 and MG Maxus 9. MG has priced Maxus 9 between 2.499 million Baht for base X trim and 2.699 million Baht for top-spec V trim in Thailand. Today’s currency exchange translates to a price between Rs. 60 lakh and Rs. 65 lakh.

This is what a Fortuner costs in Karnataka, on-road. For the money, MG Maxus 9 is a 5,270 mm long, 2000 mm wide, 1,840 mm tall fully electric mini-van with a 3,200 mm long wheelbase, automatic sliding doors, and a tonne of tech and gadgetry. We hope MG brings in Mifa 7 instead of this to India.

High on features and creature comforts

For starters, MG Maxus 9 is completely identical to Maxus Mifa 9. it is a futuristic fully-electric minivan. The front fascia has sleek LED DRL elements at the top and LED headlights below them. There are strong vertical design elements that lend a lot of aggression. Rear LED tail light signature mimics its face. Reminds me of representation of humans in cavemen’s drawings. Once you see it, you can’t unsee it.

Owing to its minivan body style, it has an impressive greenhouse and acres of space on the inside. Speaking on the inside, MG Maxus 9 is fairly minimalistic and techy at the same time. Dashboard has two iPad-like displays with rounded corners. One for instrumentation and other for driver’s display. Front seats are powered, ventilated and massaging as well.

MG has integrated AC controls into a touch-sensitive panel below infotainment screen. 2nd-row individual captain chairs are Maxus 9’s forte. These are powered, heated, ventilated, and massage function enabled. Both 2nd-row seats get calf rests, individual armrests and cup holders, individual wireless charging pads and individual digital displays to control respective seat functions and individual foldable tables.

There is a single-pane sunroof for front occupants and a panoramic sunroof for 2nd and 3rd row occupants.

Electrifying powertrain

MG Maxus 9 comes equipped with a 90 kWh battery coupled with a 245 bhp and 350 Nm single motor FWD architecture. NEDC certified range is up to 540 km on a single charge. An 11 kW AC charger takes the battery from 5%-100% in 8.5 hours and 120 kW DC fast charging allows battery to go from 30%-80% in 30 minutes.

Because it is an EV, there is a small front boot (Fruit?). 19” alloys with run-flat tyres, ADAS suite, electronic parking brake, TPMS, driver monitoring system, 360-degree camera with high resolution feed are other notable features. In Thailand, MG is offering three different colours namely Pearl White, Black Knight and Concrete Grey/Black Roof.
