Default 2021 Nissan Ariya

https://www.cnn.com/2020/07/15/succe...eal/index.html

https://jalopnik.com/the-2021-nissan...str-1844386250

Nissan Ariya coming to the US in 2021:

Quote:
Both one-motor and two-motor configurations will be available. The single-motor version offers 215 horsepower, 221 lb-ft of torque, and front-wheel drive, while the dual-motor version makes a total of 389 horsepower and 443 lb-ft of torque and uses Nissan's e-4ORCE all-wheel-drive setup. Two battery packs are available, regardless of drivetrain: The standard battery is a 63.0-kWh unit, while a larger 87.0-kWh battery pack will be offered as an upgrade. The front-wheel-drive model with the larger battery pack will provide the longest range estimate, which Nissan claims will be around 300 miles—and that estimate is based on the U.S. EPA cycle.

At 182.9 inches long, the Ariya is similar in size to the Rogue compact SUV.

The dashboard has a pleasingly minimalist design that incorporates two large 12.3-inch screens, one for the gauge cluster and another for the central infotainment display. A simple row of touch-capacitive climate-control buttons are nicely integrated into the wood trim of the dash.

The Ariya will go on sale in Japan first, sometime in the middle of next year. It will reach the U.S. later in 2021, with a starting price of around $40,000 that will likely reach closer to $50,000 when optioned up with the larger battery pack and all-wheel drive.

If Nissan is going to pull themselves out of the fire, EV's are the way they are going to do it.

That would help Nissan make some cash. Edgy exterior design and basic interior.

^ isn't that what Nissan is now?

I like the looks both inside and out, and the power numbers of the stronger motor seem like a good spot for most regular car folk. Curious to see how much cargo room it has as the back end of the roof seems sloped like most "coupe" style CUVs are nowadays.

Nice to see some Model Y competition. I suspect Tesla will still beat them like a rented mule but options are good.

Telsa is beating them, but Nissan is #3 in the market and will most likely shoot past GM for number 2 very soon. Not a bad place to be.

It's an EV so batteries = weight
It's a compact CUV, high belt lines don't help.

Don't get me wrong, I agree with you on both fronts, but you can't fight physics.

I see a lot of RX350 design cues, but I don't pay attention to CUV's much, so it could just be that they all look pretty similar now.

I want an affordable awd EV to replace our outback in 4ish years... this could fit the bill. It's not terrible looking, but the belt line is a little high.

Everything does look the same now. Rear end looks like Lexus NX and front end looks like a new Cadillac.

Curious as to what the two shark-fin antennas are for. Most cars have just one. Maybe for aero/styling points?

It looks like somebody with very soft bumpers backed into the side of it.

It's probably just because I hate crossovers, I think this car looks chunky and bloated. But most Nissan's look puffy these days, so it's par for the course.

Oh and, Nissan Diariya, because I'm 10.

Okay, now that cannot be unseen. LOL

Yeah, I have zero interest in a Nissan right now (besides the 400Z), but as far as numbers they appear good so far and the shape looks like what a Nissan fan would want.

I wonder what the performance numbers look like...

They likely will not work with every kind of glove (eg. heavy gloves meant for long exposure to cold) but I have gloves that work with my smart phone and other touch devices - they have a conductive material in the fingertips. Can't recall what brand they are but if you google search "touch screen gloves" or "smartphone gloves" you will get a bunch of results. They are what I wear 90% of the time in New England winters, I originally bought they for running in the winter, the fact they worked with touch devices was a bonus.

I have heavy gloves used only for snow removal duty or winter sports, but the lighter/thinner gloves are preferred for the flexibility and feedback/feel for everything else; they suck for making snowballs though as they aren't waterproof.

Hopefully Nissan can bring this thing to market at a reasonable price in AWD configuration. The Leaf has proven itself reliable and durable, the Mach-E is an unknown, as well as the VAG offerings, and the Model Y is a Tesla with a tumultuous or at the least an inauspicious start.

That was kind of a leap; Ariya is a common name in Asia.
There is also the more similarly spelled "Arya" character from GOT, and nobody made the leap to associate her name with white supremacy by adding an "n" to the end of it.

Phonetically they are quite different:
Ariya - ah-ree-ah
Arya - ar-yah
Aryn - eh-ree-uhn

You can see where Nissan was going with the naming structure though:

The Leaf was first, clearly an environmentally friendly association, now Ariya which means "ray of light" to follow suit.

Better than the alphabet soup the rest of the auto industry is using and/or moving to.

I think internally it was called "wtf?" or "are-ya?" in Japanese..

As far as I know Nissan is Japanese for brother so I do not thing that they intentionally called it Ariya to aggravate people

Finally official:
2023 Nissan Ariya EV pricing starts at just over $43,000
And prices rise to $60K among six models of the stylish crossover
https://www.autoblog.com/2022/09/27/...-ariya-prices/


Quote:
Turning over an old Leaf, the Nissan Ariya is the automaker's next chapter. We've seen it coming for a while — the stylish crossover was revealed back in 2020 — and Nissan has now revealed pricing for its new EV.

There are six grades of Ariya with various drive and battery configurations. Nissan says MSRP for the Ariya range starts at $43,190; a destination fee was not disclosed, so it's not included in the prices shown in this post. $43K gets you a FWD Ariya with a 63 kWh battery.

Driving range on a full charge is rated at 216 miles for the FWD Engage base model, and makes 214 horsepower. Adding Nissan's "e-Force" AWD to the Engage trim reduces the range slightly to 205 miles, the least of any Ariya, and output jumps to 335 horsepower.

The Ariya Venture+ FWD has the highest range available, at 304 miles.

The Engage+ e-Force AWD model is the top performer at 389 horsepower. Its range is up to 270 miles.

And the top dog in price is the Platinum+, at $60,190, again, not including destination fee. This Nappa-leather trimmed model also has 389 horsepower. Its available 19-inch wheels bring the range rating down a bit, to 265 miles.

Here's the full trim and price breakdown. Any trim gets you the Ariya's fashionable and futuristic interior:
