The new all-electric Nissan Ariya is available to order from 5 July from £43,845, with three different battery and powertrain combinations and a range of up to 329 miles and 600Nm of torque.
The Nissan Ariya is available in two grades, Advance and Evolve, and with three different battery and powertrain combinations: 2WD 63kWh, 2WD 87kWh, and e-4ORCE AWD 87kWh.
The Ariya 87kWh can recover up to 217 miles with a 30-minute quick charge, and it has moved on to the more universal CCS charging system, unlike the CHAdeMO charging system of the Nissan LEAF and Nissan e-NV200.
Nissan says that the Ariya benefits from damping forces being increased to improve body control, spring rates being adjusted and retuned steering feedback to increase on-centre definition at higher speeds.
As well as the ability to adjust the position of the seats and steering wheel, there’s also a power-sliding centre console.
Green Car Guide has had an early drive of the Ariya and initial impressions are that it is certainly a step up from the LEAF in terms of design, quality and driving experience.
The ‘Advance’ grade includes ProPILOT with Navi-Link, Intelligent Driver Alertness and Lane Keep Assist, Traffic Jam Pilot, Blind Spot Intervention, Intelligent Cruise Control, Full Auto Park, Apple Car Play and 360 degree Around View Monitor. There are also plenty of options to enhance the Advance, including the Bose Tech Pack or the Sky Pack.
The higher spec ‘Evolve’ grade adds Pro-Pilot Park, Windscreen Heads-up Display, a 10 Bose speaker system, Electric Panoramic Sunroof, power moving centre console, and black upholstery with synthetic leather seats and Ultrasuede® inserts.
Pricing for the 63kWh battery version with 160kW of power and an onboard 7.4kW AC Charger starts at £43,845 for the Advance and £47,840 for the Evolve.
For the larger 87kW battery with up to 329 miles of range, 178kW of power and a more powerful onboard 22kW AC charger, the Advance is priced at £49,595 with Evolve at £53,590.
For all-wheel drive and greater performance, then the e-4ORCE version has a 47kW increase in power to 225kW and it doubles the amount of torque to 600Nm. The e-4ORCE version is priced from £52,295 for the Advance grade or £56,290 for the Evolve.
