The production version of the fully-electric Nissan Aryia SUV has been revealed ahead of a market launch next year.
Dimensionally, the Ariya measures 4595mm long, 1850mm wide and 1655mm high, with a 2775mm wheelbase. This would put it between the Qashqai and X-Trail in Nissan’s SUV range.
At launch, Nissan will offer five versions of the Ariya with both two- and all-wheel drive configurations available, with the latter using the new e-4ORCE tech.
Each variant offers a choice of a 65kWh or 90kWh battery. The 65kWh unit has a driving range of up to 360km in 2WD models and up to 339km in AWD versions (WLTP cycle).
Depending on the trim level, the 90kWh battery offers up to 498km of range in 2WD models and 459km in AWD cars.
Again depending on the model, outputs range from 160-290kW and 300-600Nm. The 0-100km/h sprint takes between 5.1 and 7.5 seconds.
Nissan says the Ariya is built on an all-new bespoke platform that’s designed exclusively for electric models. It will have a 50:50 weight distribution and be one of the brand’s first production cars to feature the ProPilot 2.0 suite of safety technology.
Design-wise, the Ayria gets a coupe-style roofline, 19-inch aluminium wheels, and a new Akatsuki copper exterior paint option with a contrasting black roof.
On the inside, there’s a minimalist layout with the climate controls integrated into the dash panel and a pair of 12.3-inch screens.
At this stage, the Aryia hasn’t been confirmed for sale in Australia.
