2023 Nissan Ariya Electric crossover debuts at the Los Angeles Auto Show

17 November 2021, 15:54:53

2023 Nissan Ariya Electric crossover debuts at the Los Angeles Auto ShowThe Los Angeles Auto Show returns to the L.A. Convention Center for the first time since 2019 and Nissan is pulling out the stops with an all-star display of new vehicles, including the 2023 Nissan Ariya electric crossover - the brand's most advanced production vehicle ever, with up to 300-miles of driving range. Nissan has announced the preliminary 2023 Ariya model lineup, specifications and initial pricing – which starts at $45,9502 for the Ariya Venture+ front-wheel-drive model. The company has also opened a special reservation website, giving customers the opportunity to be one of the first in line for most advanced and connected vehicle Nissan has ever created.

Four Nissan Ariya models will initially be available, each equipped with an advanced liquid-cooled 87 kWh lithium-ion battery (usable battery capacity), CCS quick charge port, available ProPILOT Assist 2.03, wireless Apple CarPlay and wired Android Auto, a lounge-like premium interior and Nissan Safety Shield 360. Additional models will be available at a later date. Ariya deliveries will begin next fall, first for front-wheel drive models, followed by all-wheel drive models in late fall at more than 890 select Nissan U.S. dealers.

Built on an all-new Alliance-developed EV platform, Ariya is the ultimate expression of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, Nissan's vision to further improve the appeal of its vehicles and achieve its ultimate goal of a future with zero tailpipe emissions and virtually zero vehicle fatalities.

The Nissan Ariya's all-electric drivetrain is an example of seamless integration of advanced EV technology, integrating excellent power delivery, charging capabilities and extended range. With four core models offered, including two-wheel-drive and all-wheel- drive versions, Ariya is designed to meet the driving needs of a wide range of customers.

Both Ariya front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive models offer a choice of 63 kWh or 87 kWh of usable battery capacity – ideal for urban commuters and first time EV owners looking for quality and style in their next-generation EV.

The twin electric motor, all-wheel drive Ariya models feature Nissan's most advanced all-wheel control technology, e-4ORCE. The "e" in e-4ORCE stands for Nissan's 100% electric motor drive system. "4ORCE" (pronounced force) refers to the vehicle's physical power and energy, with "4" representing all-wheel control.

Born from the company's rich history of developing memorable all-terrain vehicles and sports cars, e-4ORCE is the spiritual offspring of the Nissan GT-R's ATTESA E-TS torque split system and the intelligent all-wheel-drive systems found in Nissan's lineup of crossovers and SUVs.

By specifically managing power output and braking performance for smoothness and stability, e-4ORCE enhances driver confidence by tracing the steered driving line over almost any road surface.

In addition to optimizing front and rear torque allocation, the system applies independent brake control at each of the four wheels to maximize the cornering force generated by each one. This delivers cornering that faithfully follows driver inputs with minimal steering adjustments.

Staying true to Nissan's heritage of producing fun-to-drive, exciting cars, Ariya's all-new EV platform has been optimized to deliver exceptional handling. The battery pack sits under the center of the vehicle to ensure a low center of gravity and near-equal weight distribution, front and rear.

The battery pack's flat design and integrated cross-member in the battery case, allow the Ariya to have a flat floor and impressive structural rigidity. Suspension components are optimized to take advantage of this, creating stable handling and a comfortable ride while also suppressing vibrations and noise from entering the cabin space.

In the rear, the suspension packaging, including the multi-link system and rear electric motor (if equipped), create an exceptional balance of ride comfort, handling and performance.

Ariya's highly rigid body structure and super responsive rack-and-pinion steering system provide the vehicle with crisp turn-in response, while its near 50:50 front/rear weight distribution made possible by the battery positioned under the floor in the middle of the vehicle helps Ariya behave in a predictable manner through all virtually types of corners.

The Ariya ensures high levels of comfort and confidence by providing occupants with the latest Nissan technologies, including the next-generation ProPILOT Assist advanced driver assistance. Available on the Nissan LEAF, Altima, Pathfinder, Rogue and Rogue Sport, ProPILOT Assist is a hands-on assistance system that helps drivers stay centered in their lane, navigate stop- and-go highway traffic and by maintaining a set vehicle speed and distance to the vehicle ahead.

Nissan's intelligent personal assistance technology features a hybrid voice recognition system with advanced natural language understanding technology to handle in-vehicle assistance without the driver taking their eyes off the road.

The vehicle also includes Amazon Alexa to help customers simplify and organize their lives. Alexa can play music, place calls, listen to audiobooks, control smart home devices, and more, with just voice commands. Both systems work hand-in-hand to provide a seamless, tailored user experience, whether during a daily commute or weekend trip. Ariya also features wireless Apple CarPlay and wired Android Auto standard to help drivers seamlessly integrate their smartphone into their vehicle experience.

The connectivity display interface features both a 12.3-inch instrument monitor and 12.3-inch center display along a single horizon. By displaying multiple facets of information on one horizontal plane, information can be quickly digested. The two displays are oriented in a wave-like shape to ensure important vehicle information, such as battery information, range and navigation, can be easily reached and scrolled through with a simple swipe.
