Nissan Ariya – The New Electric SUV

2023 nissan ariya banner

Thirteen years before the Nissan Ariya, Nissan produced their first electric car, the Nissan Leaf. It was one of the most affordable electric cars on the market at the time of its release. The Nissan Leaf range was around 160km on average and has since grown to around 342km with the 2023 model.

The Ariya is the first Nissan electric SUV. The electric car battery capacity of the Ariya can be either 63kWh or 87kWh. This puts the Nissan Ariya range between 330km and 490km depending on the trim level. Longer range per charge means a stress-free journey with much less trip planning around EV charging stations.
