Well it is Launch day 15th July and here she is the long awaited Nissan Ariya - Dave 😉

“Nissan today revealed to the world the all-new Nissan Ariya electric coupé crossover, marking a new chapter for Nissan electric vehicles. Nissan’s first all-electric coupé crossover– offers powerful acceleration and smooth, quiet operation, as well as an interior with a welcoming, luxurious lounge-like atmosphere. Its stress-free autonomous driving features, voice personal assistance and seamless connectivity heighten on-road confidence and provides a welcoming environment for the driver and passengers. And with an estimated range of up to 310 miles (based on WLTP combined cycle, subject to homologation), Ariya is the perfect partner for daily commutes and road trips alike.”

Looks like DaveBerlin saw the presentation live - so did I !!!

Deeply impressed by the car.

Deeply unimpressed by the launch. It was if it had been set in stone 6 months ago and they hadn't realised it wouldn't be a live audience - the presentation continued as if it was; very pedestrian. And we didn't get that much of an impression about the car.

Do I want one - yes!

Can I afford one? - no! At least at the £40k - £55k I predict it will cost... (Not even Autocar are giving a prediction)

Before posting I thought I'd Google.

The Verge is suggesting $40k upwards which will probably translate to at least £40k

Carwow says "Expect to pay from around £40,000 to £45,000 for an entry-level two-wheel-drive 63kWh car and closer to £60,000 for a top-spec Performance model."

WhatCar says "With prices likely to start at around £40,000, not including the government’s £3000 grant for electric vehicles" - presumably that means £43k+?

In fact most sites suggest £40k+/$40k+.

What I hadn't realised is that it's not on sale until "late 2021" so well over a year off still...

Oddly when we first saw the Ariya Concept, I said that looks like a production car - check out the mirrors. They were conventional not tiny concept ones or even cameras.

Ironically now we can compare the concept with the reality, I find one of the very few things changes are the mirrors! They're now even more conventional...

There's little else I can see changed apart from the fact that the lower blades of the DRLs now stop about 3/4 down rather than going right to the bottom, there's a visible tow hook cover, lateral front parking sensors, a differently shaped charging port cover and the door handle recesses have been enlarged..

Anything else?

It's amazing that the wheels haven't changed! (EDIT - see next posting!)

Likewise looking at the rear:

Well maybe the wheels ARE slightly different - but not by much!

Again you can more readily see the door handle recess change.

Here though things have changed a bit more - the proportions of the lights against the rear wings shows they've narrower a little. There's more bumper between the wheel arch and the vertical crease. And the tailgate has widened quite a bit.

Low red reflectors have appeared as have parking sensors.
