On the Road
In Nashville, Tennessee, Nissan offered us the opportunity to drive the 2023 Ariya Premiere, a front-wheel-drive version with the 87 kWh battery and the electric motor producing 238 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque. In this configuration the Ariya is not all that quick, but there is enough power for good all-around drivability.

Once moving, the Ariya’s full torque is readily available at any speed, providing the quick response one would expect from an electric vehicle.
