The Nissan Ariya is the Japanese automaker’s first electric SUV. It is tackling the new market for zero-emission family models, along with the Volkswagen ID4, the Skoda Enyaq iV and the Ford Mustang Mach-E. Its range leaves the choice between five engine and battery combinations: from entry-level, with a 218 horsepower engine and 63 kWh batteries capable of holding 360 km, to the sporty high-end with two 394 horsepower engines, all-wheel drive and 87 kWh batteries to last 400 km. For those who prefer maximum range, it is possible to combine the large battery with a 242 horsepower motor, making it possible to cover over 500 km on a single charge. Compatible with fast charging to 130 kW, the Ariya can recharge to 80% in less than 40 minutes. It weighs between 1.8 and 2.3 tonnes depending on the engine chosen, and has a 468-liter trunk in the two-wheel drive version (415 liters in the four-wheel drive version). We do not yet know its prices but it will cost less than the Tesla Model Y, a rival barely bigger (the Nissan is 4.6 meters long).
