The 2023 Nissan Ariya represents the automaker’s boldest step yet toward an electric-car future. After years of offering the affordable electric Leaf hatchback, the Ariya may help the automaker attract more first-time electric-car buyers than ever before.
Nissan is aiming to have more than 40 percent of its U.S. vehicle sales be fully electric by 2030. The Ariya will be available in six trims with front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive and two types of batteries: a standard-range 63-kilowatt-hour battery or a long-range 87-kWh battery.
Nissan says the long-range battery is EPA-estimated at 304 miles of range with FWD, but the standard battery is much less at 216 miles with FWD (AWD range estimates have not yet been announced). Nissan extends the comfort with heated power front seats that are covered in synthetic leather on most trims.
A power-sliding center console adds both refinement and versatility, as well as an available wireless smartphone charger. In the back, the heated rear seats with ample leg room fold flat to expand the cargo area to nearly 60 cubic feet, with the tiered cargo floor on its lowest setting.
A hands-free driving system similar to GM’s Super Cruise debuts on the Nissan Ariya’s top trims, but Nissan equips all Ariyas with all kinds of standard driver-assist tech, from automatic emergency braking to adaptive cruise control.
