What we know about new Ariya

The new Nissan Ariya will be available in Ireland with two battery options. There’s a 63 kWh battery that delivers a range of 402 kilometres and an 87 kWh battery that offers a range of 529 kilometres. Models are two wheel drive as standard with e-4ORCE, Nissan’s most advanced all-wheel drive technology available also.

A Combined Charging System (CCS) will be available on Ariyas sold in Europe to facilitate fast charging. The Nissan Ariya has a 7.4 kW on board charger for AC charging. A 22 kW will be available from December as an option. The Ariya can also support fast charging up to 130 kW.

Nissan is launching the new Ariya in two trim levels: Advance and Evolve.

Pricing will start for the entry grade 63 kWh Nissan Ariya Advance from €48,995. At the moment we know that the top of the range 87 kWh Ariya Evolve will be priced at €66,995.

The interior of the new Ariya features a minimalist dashboard. For example primary control functions vibrate when touched and only appear when the car is switched on. The reimagined interior allows for an entirely flat floor with a wide, open lounge-like experience and spacious cabin.

Apple CarPlay (wireless) and Android Auto come as standard. There’s also a wireless phone charger and intelligent personal assistance technology.

Nissan’s Safety Shield System includes Intelligent 360° Around View Monitor, Intelligent Forward Collision Warning, Intelligent Driver Alertness, Intelligent Cruise Control and Lane Intervention. There’s also Intelligent Emergency Braking (Pedestrian & Cyclist Detection, Junction Assist), Rear Emergency Braking and cross traffic alert technology.

Anything else?

Other standard features include ProPilot with Navi-Link, and the e-Pedal. ProPilot helps drivers stay centred in their lane, navigate stop-and-go motorway traffic and maintain a set vehicle speed and distance to the vehicle ahead. e-Pedal, which is also available in the Nissan LEAF, allows drivers to launch, accelerate and decelerate using only the accelerator.

The top of the range 87 kWh Ariya Evolve comes with part PVC/Synthentic suede seats, Intelligent Rear View Mirror, a Heads Up Display (HUD) and ProPILOT Park. There’s also ventilated (heat and cooled) front seats, heated rear seats, power memory mirrors, power memory driver and passenger 8-way seats, a DAB and Bose 10-speaker sound system and an openable panoramic sunroof.

Seamus Morgan, Managing Director of Nissan Ireland, said:

“Nissan invented the crossover segment with the Nissan Qashqai in 2007 and started the journey to electrification when it launched the mass market Nissan LEAF in 2010. The all new Ariya builds on our success, key strengths and pioneering expertise and we expect that it will quickly establish itself as one of the best-selling EVs on Irish roads.”

“There is massive interest in this car and we have launched an extensive national roadshow to showcase it to customers at local Nissan dealerships. This car will be at the heart of the accelerated shift towards electric driving that we are now witnessing in Ireland. Its arrival is also a key element of Nissan’s strategy to electrify its range and to increase its electrification sales mix across Europe by more than 75% by 2026,” he added.

The new Ariya electric crossover from Nissan is available for pre-orders now.
