Nissan unveils Ariya, its new 100% electric SUV

Nissan finally returns to the 100% electric vehicle, almost ten years after the Nissan Leaf. In a remote conference, the Japanese automaker presented its new electric SUV, Nissan Ariya. This vehicle will be marketed in Japan in the spring of 2021 and then in North America at the end of 2021. Equipped with two to four-wheel drive, it is armed with an estimated range of 482.8 kilometers and will equipped, under the hood, with a 63 kWh or 87 kWh battery of your choice. With the Ariya, Nissan is betting on discretion and sobriety - a bit like Arya Stark from Game of Thrones, whose name unintentionally evokes. The interior of its cabin is proof: its dashboard is only adorned with two rectangular screens of 12.3 inches each. The vehicle is of course connectable to other mobile devices, thanks to its compatibility with systems like Amazon Alexa, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The driver can also interact directly with the Ariya’s native intelligent assistant, using a simple “Hello Nissan” or “Hey Nissan” to adjust the internal temperature or select and play music.

In addition, this future 100% electric SUV is accompanied by a new driver assistance assistant, ProPILOT. Thanks to the vehicle's 360 ° camera vision, this intelligent system enables it to be controlled automatically on straight lines or even to steer in front of a pedestrian in an emergency. It also gives the Ariya driver the possibility of receiving alerts to adjust his handling in certain situations or to prevent a collision with another vehicle. Finally, ProPILOT is also equipped with an active parking aid, ProPILOT Park. The Nissan Ariya will go on sale next year at a starting price of around $ 40,000 (or € 34,900).
