It says it is designed to not only impress EV buyers, but also to also demonstrate Nissan’s commitment to meeting a growing demand for new electrified, autonomous and connected technologies.

Two battery options are available, a 63kWh battery that delivers a range of 402 kilometres, and an 87kWh battery that offers a range of 529 kilometres.

Nissan is launching the car with two grade options, featuring many of its innovative safety and infotainment features as standard.

The Japanese carmaker says the Ariya is Nissan’s ultimate expression of style and technology. The model’s 100 per cent electric vehicle platform removed fundamental limitations and allowed designers to take new approaches to existing components. It adds that the new Ariya is the most technically advanced Nissan to date.

It has been specially designed to meet the needs of tech-savy customers and to be a partner in an increasingly connected world, offering seamless, personal assistance and responses.

The interior of the new Nissan Ariya redefines how drivers interact with technology. The minimalist dashboard is devoid of the usual buttons and switches. Primary control functions vibrate when touched and only appear when the car is switched on.

The reimagined interior allows for an entirely flat floor, resulting in a wide, open lounge-like experience and the most spacious cabin in its class.
