Nissan Ariya crossover

The all-electric Nissan Ariya crossover can now be pre-ordered in the UK, with the first deliveries beginning in summer 2022.

The Nissan Ariya will be available in four versions – two-wheel drive Advance (63kWh), two-wheel drive Evolve (87kWh), all-wheel drive e-4ORCE Evolve (87kWh) and all-wheel drive e-4ORCE Performance (87kWh). All four versions of Ariya will be available at launch.

The two-wheel drive Advance 63kWh is expected to have a WLTP combined cycle range of up to 223 miles, the two-wheel drive Evolve 87kWh up to 310 miles, the e-4ORCE Evolve (87kWh) up to 285 miles, and up to 248 miles for the 87kWh e-4ORCE Performance.

The twin electric motor, all-wheel-drive Ariya versions will feature all-wheel control technology, e-4ORCE.

The two-wheel drive models will have a towing capacity of 750kg, which increases to 1500kg for the all-wheel drive versions. Boot capacity will be 466 litres (or 408 litres for the all-wheel drive models).

Prices start from £41,845 for the two-wheel drive Advance 63kWh versions, rising to £58,440 for the all-wheel drive e-4ORCE Performance 87kWh model. All models will have an onboard 22kW charger as standard, except for the Advance 63kWh model, which will have this as an option.

Personal contract (PCP) offers start from £629 monthly payment on the expected best-selling EVOLVE 87kWh version, with 5.81% APR, and £6,616 customer deposit over 37 months with 10,000 annual mileage.

Nissan says that the Ariya 63kWh two-wheel drive model provides value for those primarily using their vehicle in urban or suburban areas. For families looking to take longer journeys, the Ariya 87kWh offers two-wheel drive with an extended range. The Ariya e-4ORCE 87kWh combines the benefits of all-wheel drive and a longer range. The Ariya e-4ORCE 87kWh Performance has a high power output of 394PS and 600Nm of torque.

The Ariya will be offered with a choice of ten body colours, including pearlescent, metallic and premium metallic shades together with six two-tone options. There are also three dashboard colours (black, blue and grey).
