The first images of the production version of Nissan Ariya publishedJune 13, 2020
The first electric Nissan SUV will receive stunning looks Nissan Ariya is almost ready for production. It is reported that the Japanese crossover will look much cooler than the Tesla Model Y.
Back at the Tokyo Auto Show in 2019, Nissan unveiled a new concept car called Ariya. Designed to be the next electric model after the Nissan Leaf, Ariya looked pretty close to mass production during her concept debut. Second-generation Leaf – recognized as a much more beautiful car than the model that it replaced, but Ariya looks great with Nissan’s completely new design direction.
The concept was already quite realistic, but digital artist Kleber Silva presented what a full-fledged model might look like. If this is what the serial Ariya will look like, then the Kia Niro EV and Hyundai Kona Electric Nissan may have a strong competitor.
This rendering creates a model in a catchy shade of blue, with more familiar wheels, fog lights and some other minor changes, but for the most part remains true to Nissan’s original design. Unlike most concept cars, Ariya did not have any “flashy” stylistic features, such side view cameras instead of mirrors, hidden door handles or rear “suicide doors”.
The interior is likely to be more ordinary than in the images presented earlier, but we won’t be surprised if the Nissan Ariya changes very little in appearance when it goes into production. Ariya is expected to run on an all-new EV platform with two electric motors in combination with Nissan’s new e-4ORCE all-wheel drive technology. This new system can distribute torque 100% forward or backward, like the GT-R, improving cross-country ability and stability. The power reserve is expected to improve over the current 364-kilometer Leaf mileage.
