Nissan’s 388HP ‘Ariya’ Is The Brand’s First All-Electric Crossover SUV

When Nissan announced its NEXT transformation initiative, the automotive world began to take note. Since then, the landscape has remained relatively sparse for the Japanese manufacturer, but today, it’s once again become the talk of the town, thanks to the reveal of Nissan’s first all-electric crossover SUV, the Ariya.

The Nissan Ariya sets a baseline for Nissan’s four-year plan, bolstering its pursuit of increased cultural acuity, innovation, and craftsmanship. Boasting approximately 300 miles of range per charge, the sleek, next-gen model is slated for sale in both a two-wheel-drive, or “e-4ORCE” all-wheel-drive variant, providing drivers with an attractive 388 horsepower and 443 lb-ft of torque. Obviously, those numbers won’t hold true for the brand’s two-wheel-drive platform, but each individual example has been built with an experiential driving suite in mind, calling upon a voice-activated infotainment and navigation system, Amazon Alexa integration, Apple’s CarPlay, and semi-autonomous ProPILOT Assist 2.0 driving functions to give it a leg up on its less-connected competition. Head to Nissan’s website to learn more about the $40,000 vehicle’s impending release, which is slated to take place sometime in 2021.
