Will Nissan Ariya be Able to Hold its Ground Against Tesla Model Y?

Nissan has unveiled its second all-electric vehicle, which is Ariya, a crossover. The Ariya was first showcased in the Nissan IMx concept at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show. Following the launch, the Nissan Ariya will rival against the champ Tesla Model Y.

Nissan Ariya is the biggest electric vehicle launch, by the Japanese Automotive manufacturer since Nissan Leaf. There are few all-electric SUVs available currently, and even fewer non-luxury options. Aside from the Ariya, EV buyers can choose from the Hyundai Kona Electric and Kia Niro EV. While on the premium luxury side, the Nissan Ariya can hinder the peace of Tesla Model S, Audi E-Tron, and Jaguar I-Pace. There are a few more coming soon, including the Ford Mustang Mach-E.

Powertrain and Range

Nissan announced two battery versions – 65 kWh (63 kWh usable) and 90 kWh (87 kWh usable), two drive options (front-wheel drive, and e-4ORCE all-wheel drive), as well as several power levels (from 160 kW to 290 kW peak).

The battery pack has received an active thermal management system, which finally includes liquid-cooling. That’s a major improvement from the LEAF. The Ariya ditches the old cells for prismatic lithium-ion cells. The motor used by the crossover is an Externally Excited Synchronous Motor (ESM), which suggests a major switch from permanent magnet motors used so far by Nissan.

The Nissan Ariya can be availed depending on various promised range models, which include:

  • up to around 300 miles (483 km) in the U.S.
  • roughly from 360 km (224 miles) to 500 km (311 miles) of WLTP in Europe
  • roughly from 450 km (280 miles) to 610 km (379 miles) of WLTC in Japan.

The top of the line versions will be able to go 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.1 seconds and reach the top speed of 200 km/h (124 mph). The Nissan Ariya could be picked from Nissan showroom from 2021 and is expected to cost around $40,000 (USD)

Interior Features

Inside, the electric crossover will make it a far better car than the LEAF. The center will host a 12.3-inch infotainment display, along with a 12.3-inch instrument monitor, plus a heads-up display (HUD). ProPilot 2.0 will provide hands-off single-lane highway driving capability to the Ariya. The seat, steering wheel position, and auto-sliding center console are all adjusted based on the saved driver profile linked with the Intelligent Key.
