Nissan Ariya Concept – Tokyo
Over the last few years, Nissan has shown a plethora of concept vehicles at auto shows around the world — all intended to provide a glimpse toward what the company plans for the future. Making its world debut at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show, the Ariya Concept is a small all-electric crossover that introduces an all-new look for Nissan. Although earlier concepts have provided hints about future design, the Ariya Concept is the closest to a production model thus far. Even though elements of current Nissan designs can be recognized in the Ariya Concept, the new vehicle design takes things a giant step further, both for the brand and for what is likely a unique look for the brand’s electric vehicles. The signature V-Motion grille is still at the front; however, with the Ariya the overall size is broader, incorporating thin LED headlights and what Nissan calls the “shield,” emblazoned with an illuminated Nissan logo.
