Nissan reveals the all new Ariya electric coupe crossover, the first production model to represent Nissan's new electrified brand identity.

17 Jul 2020 | International News : Japan

Nissan has revealed to the world the all new Nissan Ariya electric crossover, marking a new chapter for Nissan electric vehicles. The Ariya premiered globally through a virtual event hosted at the soon-to-open Nissan Pavilion in Yokohama, Japan.

The Ariya - Nissan's first all-electric crossover SUV - offers powerful acceleration and smooth, quiet operation, as well as an interior with a welcoming, luxurious lounge-like atmosphere. And with an estimated range of up to 610km, Ariya is the perfect partner for daily commutes and road trips alike.

The Ariya's striking looks represent Nissan's new design language, Timeless Japanese Futurism
It's the first production model to represent Nissan's new electrified brand identity, forging a path toward a new automotive era where electrification, optimised platform packaging and seamless vehicle AI technology will become standard.

Built on an all new Alliance-developed Electric Vehicle (EV) platform, the Ariya is the ultimate expression of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, the company's strategy to further improve the appeal of its vehicles and achieve the ultimate goal of a future with zero emissions and zero vehicle fatalities.

While every Ariya model will feature impressive driving range in its segment, it also boasts remarkable range recovery and quick-charge performance. This is thanks in part to its battery thermal control feature, which constantly optimises the operating temperature of the liquid-cooled battery. Using peak 130kW charging, the Ariya can recover up to 375km with a 30-minute quick charge using Japan's CHAdeMO charging system.

Front-seat occupants are treated to the Ariya's minimalist dashboard, which blends seamlessly with the shape of the cabin
The compact nature of the powertrain components made it possible for Nissan's engineers to install the climate control system under the hood where a traditional gasoline engine would be. This allows the designers to utilise the whole length of the cabin without obstructions, such as a transmission tunnel or cabin systems tucked under the instrument panel, in turn freeing up space and allows for a flat floor.

Both the flat foor and the slim profile Zero Gravity seats result in vast amounts of legroom and easy interaction between front and rear-seat passengers. The quiet EV drivetrain and the generous use of sound-absorbing materials result in an exceptionally quiet cabin.

The Ariya e-4ORCE all-wheel-drive model, with 63kWh of usable battery capacity, offers an attractive balance in performance and value in its segment. With slightly less emphasis on range, this model offers ample performance and innovative new technologies, including twin electric motors and e-4ORCE control technology that deliver balanced, predictable power to all four wheels, equal to or better than many premium sports cars. The Ariya e-4ORCE all-wheel-drive model with 87kWh of usable battery capacity features the highest level of Nissan Intelligent Mobility available, including ProPILOT 2.0 that offers hands-off single lane highway driving capability.

The ProPILOT 2.0 uses seven cameras, five millimeter-wave radars and 12 ultrasonic sonar sensors detect lane markers and surrounding objects
The ProPILOT 2.0 advanced driver assistance system is the newest iteration of Nissan's driver assistance technology. Equipped as standard on the second generation Nissan Leaf, ProPILOT is a hands-on assistance system that helps drivers stay centered in their lane, navigate stop-and-go highway traffic and maintain a set vehicle speed and distance to the vehicle ahead.

ProPILOT 2.0 expands on this, allowing attentive drivers to take their hands off the steering wheel under certain conditions, reducing the driver's workload and stress in single-lane highway traffic.

In addition, ProPILOT 2.0 also supports multi-lane highway driving tasks such as lane changes, passing and highway exiting. The Nissan Ariya is also equipped with additional innovative 360-degree safety features such as the signature Nissan Safety Shield, which includes Intelligent Around View Monitor, Intelligent Forward Collision Warning, Intelligent Emergency Braking, and Rear Automatic Emergency Braking technology.
