Aside from the compact Leaf, Nissan hasn’t produced much in the electric vehicle space. After its initial debut at the Tokyo Motor Show in October 2019, the Japanese automaker has announced that it will be bringing its Ariya concept to production as the brand’s first electric crossover.
When we got our first look at the Ariya, it already looked close to production ready despite being a concept vehicle. Aside from its unique exterior design with Nissan’s signature shield grille, the Ariya is rather minimalistic. Inside, the crossover features few buttons and large touchscreens for the infotainment and instrument cluster. We expect to see some minor changes in the production vehicle.
Currently, we only know that the Ariya is slated to come with a dual-electric motor powertrain with an all-wheel control system. A virtual reveal event is planned for July 15 where more information will be announced. Stay tuned for updates.
