SUV Nissan Ariya will open in a week and a half – DRIVE

A 4.6 m model should compete with electric cars such as Peugeot e-2008 (it is slightly smaller, 4.3 m) Kia niro ev (4.37 m) or slightly larger Tesla Model Y (4.75 m) and Ford Mustang Mach-E (4.72 m). Under the gun of Nissan, no doubt Volkswagen ID.4 (4.6–4.61 m) and all of its future co-platforms from the VW concern.

The Japanese appointed the premiere of the Nissan Ariya electric crossover on July 15, 2020. After the concept of the same name and patent drawings of the serial version, there should not be any special surprises in appearance. The technology is also approximately clear what to expect from the car. Although the company itself makes a fog with advertising phrases like “See how cities are pulsating with energy and information. Autonomous technology watches give a new sense of freedom. ” This is about a virtual presentation of a beginner in a kind of game form. The upcoming launch of Aria is announced as a new chapter in the development of the brand.

When the concept is converted (its sketch is shown here) into a serial model, the effectiveness will decrease, and yet the general form and details of the decor will be close.

Judging by the teaser, the narrowed front and rear optics of the production car will be very close to the one that appeared on the show car.

Ariya should be a close relative of Leaf, or rather his experimental all-wheel drive version of Leaf e + with the Electric All-Wheel-Control system. If you focus on them, then you can wait in the SUV for a pair of electric motors (one in front and one in the back) with a total return of 309 hp. and 680 N • m, as well as a battery with a capacity of 62 kW • h (in older versions), giving a range of about 385 km in the WLTP cycle. The ProPilot highway autopilot, apparently, will appear here already in version 2.0, as on Skyline. The Aria will be launched at the Tochigi plant, and the model will be global, so it will come to the Japanese market, Europe, and the United States (the predicted price is about $ 40,000).
