New All-Electric Nissan Ariya Crossover Generates Excitement

July 30th, 2021 by
Nissan pioneered the EV market in 2010 when it introduced the Nissan LEAF, the first mass-market electric vehicle with nearly 500,000 LEAFS sold to date. Building on this successful history of electric-vehicle innovation, Nissan is generating excitement once again with its groundbreaking new 100% electric Ariya Crossover SUV.

Set to debut in the U.S. market later this year, the sleekly styled Ariya represents Nissan’s most audacious, technologically advanced, and beautifully designed entry into the hotly charged EV market in its history.  Let’s discover what all the electrifying excitement is about.

Ultramodern Design

Epitomizing Nissan’s “Timeless Japanese Futurism” design philosophy, the new Ariya EV Crossover stands out from the crowd with a sleek, low-slung, and futuristic new look that’s both sporty and sophisticated. The new Ariya breaks the mold with a daring new front grille flanked by two razor-thin Daytime Running Lamps. Above them sit a thin band of LED headlights

To maximize aerodynamic efficiency, the Ariya’s low-slung roofline gracefully arcs and tapers into the rear deck. A band of red LED taillights traverses the entire length of the rear deck, reaching around the rear quarter panels. Massive five-spoke sport wheels give the Ariya’s silhouette a bold, athletic, and purposeful look. The roof, wheel arches, and lower fascia are rendered in contrasting, high-gloss black giving the Ariya a distinct and unique appearance that won’t be mistaken for other “run-of-the-mill” SUVs.

Indulgent and Spacious High-Tech Interior

The Ariya’s refined and versatile interior sets new benchmarks for the ultimate in serene, comfortable, and high-tech accommodations. Ariya’s minimalist interior design is devoid of frills, extraneous buttons and switches, and other distractions. Instead, the Ariya employs illuminated digital switchgear with haptic feedback to enhance its ultramodern appeal.

Upon entry, the Ariya greets you in illuminating fashion with soft ambient lighting that surrounds the entire cabin. The ambient lighting effects will also change depending on which drive mode you select.

Front passengers enjoy the fatigue-reducing comfort of Nissan’s exclusive, NASA-inspired Zero Gravity Seats. Thanks to the Ariya’s flat floor, passengers can stretch out and relax with ample rear head and legroom. This flat floor also contributes to the Ariya’s excellent cargo capacity as well.

The Ariya also features a unique Power Sliding Center Console that lets you move it forward and backward with a touch of a button to customize your interior space.

A Marvel of Technological Innovation

The Nissan Ariya’s clean and uncluttered dash is dominated by dual, fully customizable 12.3-inch, high-def color displays. You can easily rearrange or move items from one Integrated Display Interface screen to another by simply touching and swiping as you would on a smartphone or tablet.

An ingenious, full-color Heads Up Display projects vital information, such as vehicle speed, music choices, and turn-by-turn directions onto the windshield just above the dash so you can keep your eyes on the road.

The Ariya’s intelligent personal assistant technology also allows you to connect with and control all this advanced technology either by touch or with your voice. You can tell the Ariya to set the temperature or perform a myriad of other functions. With Alexa Built-in, you can even remotely control various features of your home from your car.

In addition to wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration, the Ariya has a few more tricks up its sleeve. You’ll always know where you’re headed, thanks to the Ariya’s Intelligent Route Planner that gives you the best options for arriving at your destination, as well as clearly locating fast-charging stations along your route.

Plus, the vehicle’s software and firmware are automatically updated so you’re always using the latest versions of Nissan’s advanced technology.

Let ProPILOT Be Your Co-Pilot

The Ariya takes advanced driver-assist technology to a new dimension with Nissan’s cutting-edge ProPILOT Assist 2.0. Like a seasoned co-pilot confidently guiding your Ariya, ProPILOT Assist allows you to experience hands-off single-lane highway driving, aids with changing lanes, and even lets you remotely park your Ariya using your smartphone.

ProPilot Assist with Navi-Link adds even more sophisticated technological capabilities. With it, the system can proactively recognize gentle curves and off-ramps, helping you to slow down when necessary.

The new Ariya also comes well-equipped with an array of additional standard and available safety features. These include a handy Intelligent Rear-View Mirror that displays images from the vehicle’s rear back-up camera, Intelligent Around View® Monitor that gives you a 360-degree bird’s-eye-view of your surroundings, Intelligent Forward-Collision Warning, Rear Automatic Braking, Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, and Intelligent Blind-Spot Intervention.

More Power. Less Range Anxiety.

A common issue with EV buyers is “range anxiety.” In other words, how far can you travel on a single battery charge before you need to re-charge?

The all-new Ariya offers two brilliant, forward-thinking solutions by offering two different models with two different battery sizes. Both two-wheel and all-wheel-drive models can be ordered with a standard or long-range battery.

In standard, two-wheel-drive trim and with its 65-kWh battery, the 2022 Nissan Ariya can travel an estimated 250 miles. This single-motor configuration delivers approximately 215 hp and an estimated 221 lb. ft. of torque.

Step up to the long-range version of the Ariya and experience the ultimate in gasless, EV motoring. This breakthrough achievement in range-topping electrified travel with Nissan’s advanced “e-4ORCE” All-Wheel-Drive system paired to a larger 87-kWh twin electric motor that offers an outstanding estimated 300-mile range, along with an estimated 335 hp and 413 lb.-ft. of torque.

The Ariya’s e-4ORCE All-Wheel-Drive uses Nissan’s most advanced four-wheel-drive technology to provide exceptional, sure-footed handling in a variety of weather and road conditions for unsurpassed confidence and control. Select from Sport, Eco, or Snow modes to dial in the ride that’s just right for your next adventure.

The Ariya also helps to conquer range anxiety with several key technologies, including an app that allows you to schedule home charging, the aforementioned Intelligent Route Planner that conveniently locates fast-charging stations, and quick-charging capabilities.
