When it introduced the LEAF to the U.S. market in 2010, Nissan became one of the first car companies to deliver a mainstream production electric car to the masses. Now Nissan is set to introduce its second model called Ariya — a compact crossover with seating for five. Ariya presents a broad overall stance incorporating narrow LED headlights and running lights. The crossover is built on an all-new EV platform and will be available with either a 63 kWh battery or a longer-range 87 kWh battery. The standard Ariya has front-wheel drive; Nissan will also offer the Ariya with dual motors to provide increased performance as well as the added grip of Nissan’s advanced all-wheel-control system called e-4ORCE. The single-motor Ariya will deliver 215 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque, while dual-motor variants will bump output to almost 390 horsepower and 443 lb-ft of torque. Ariya is expected to arrive in fall 2022.
