After years of offering affordable hybrid and fully electric Nissan Leaf hatchback, Nissan has moved to expand its electric vehicles. The all-new Nissan Ariya, which will join the Leaf hatchback sometime this year, will not only add to this Japanese brand’s electric vehicle lineup but will mark the beginning of a new Nissan design language.
The Ariya, which will be available for leasing by fall as a 2023 model, aims to make a new name for Nissan’s EV lineup. With its bold styling and pleasant blend of exciting handling and high level of tech features, the all-new Ariya will undoubtedly thrill many shoppers, especially those leasing an all-electric vehicle for the first time.
Unlike the Leaf, with only front-wheel drive and a maximum drive range of 226 miles, the 2023 Ariya is powered by a single electric motor that pumps out 215 hp and 221 lb-ft of torque. There’s also an optional dual electric motor variant that generates 389 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque. Ariya will be available with FWD and AWD, with the AWD system, known as the e-4ORCE, standard in the dual electric motor setup.
While the base front-wheel-drive models will be slightly slower than models with the optional dual-motors and AWD system, we expect it will deliver enough power to keep the Ariya going, both in streets and on the freeway. We expect the all-wheel-drive models to provide peppy acceleration and a perfect blend of exciting handling and plush ride, just like higher-end electric vehicles.
Estimated fuel economy numbers of the 2023 Nissan Ariya are yet to be released by the EPA. Even Nissan has yet to claim its EV SUV MPGe figures. However, we expect these figures to be available as we get closer to the release date of the Ariya.
Nissan says that the all-new Ariya will be available in four different trim levels with a diverse driving range. The Ariya Venture+ FWD base model with a driving range of 300 miles on a full charge will likely offer the most incredible range in the lineup. In contrast, its Platinum+ e-4orce AWD model with a range of 265 miles will likely provide the lowest drive range in the lineup. The other two middle trim levels, the Evolve+ FWD and Premiere FWD, are likely to offer 285 miles of driving range.
The Ariya can be charged using a DC fast charger, a regular charging station, or 110- or 240-volt outlets at home.
The Nissan’s design shift is not only visible on the exterior styling of the Ariya but also in the interior. The futuristic styled new Nissan’s cabin is comfortable and sports ample head-and legroom space even in its rear seats.
Inside, the new Ariya is more upscale than all Nissan cars and packs a cool infotainment system and many convenience packages, including a ProPilot Assist 2.0, a 12.3-inch infotainment screen, and a 12.3-inch instrument cluster screen.
All 2023 Ariya models pack many standard active safety tech features, including,
