The all-new 2023 Nissan Ariya is the brand’s first all-electric crossover. However, it is not Nissan’s first electric car. Nissan built a famous Leaf hatchback for more than ten years. Ariya will now be another impressive model with a lot to offer.
The new crossover will compete directly with cars like the Ford Mustang Mach-E and the Tesla Model Y. It is a five-seat crossover with front-wheel drive as standard. It will have a long driving range, numerous safety aids, and a sleek design. Even the interior design will be cutting-edge and pleasant. New details are here, so let’s check them out.
Nissan Ariya Exterior Design
The 2023 Nissan Ariya measures 182.9 inches, which is nearly the same as the current Nissan Rogue SUV. Its appearance, on the other hand, unmistakably foreshadows the future. The flowing design of the Ariya electric crossover includes an almost endless number of curves and rounded edges.
The exterior design is dominated by a strong, flowing-plate front grille, forceful boomerang-like LED running lights and a unique rear spoiler. The Ariya is undeniably a Nissan, despite its futuristic appearance. If you look closely, you may see remains of the Murano and Maxima. The Ariya will be available with six various two-tone floating roof types, each with a black roof. The wheels have a diameter of 19 or 20 inches. On both sides of the car, charge ports are located directly beneath the front wheels.
The brand-new 2023 Nissan Ariya is a five-passenger crossover SUV with two rows of seating. However, the similarities to other small crossovers, such as Rogue, ends here. The cabin of the Ariya is designed to be as minimal as possible.
The controls are unique, and Ariya has two 12.3-inch touchscreen options for displaying driving data and infotainment. The volume control knob is our favorite feature. As easy as that. Ariya would also have plenty of capacity for all passengers. The cargo area, on the other hand, will be slightly smaller, but generally speaking, the cabin design and quality are impressive.
Powertrain Specs, Charging and Driving Range
The upcoming 2023 Nissan Ariya will be a strong alternative in the sector in terms of performance. Nissan provides two distinct battery packs. You can choose between 63 kWh and 87 kWh, both with FWD or AWD systems. A twin-motor arrangement will be used in the all-wheel-drive variants. This arrangement enables for more efficient torque distribution to the wheels.
Furthermore, each wheel has the ability to shatter individually. The Ariya crossover should have a driving range of roughly 300 miles on a single charge. We don’t know how long it takes to charge, but Nissan promised a 7.2 kW Level 2 charger. Finally, Ariya will reportedly be capable of producing up to 390 horsepower and 445 lb-ft of torque. Unfortunately, numerous experts are predicting around 240 horsepower.
2023 Nissan Ariya Release Date, Price
This is perhaps the only disappointing thing about the 2023 Nissan Ariya. Nissan said the price will start at around $40,000. However, the latest details are showing the price of $47,000, including the destination charge. The sales will begin in the second half of 2022.
