Nissan Ariya world premiere: press kit
Nissan today revealed to the world the all-new Nissan Ariya electric crossover, marking a new chapter for Nissan electric vehicles.
Design: a completely reimagined appearance
The all-new Ariya is Nissan's ultimate expression of style and technology, with each complimenting the other in aesthetics and function. The model's 100% electric vehicle platform removed fundamental limitations and allowed designers to take new approaches to existing components.
Intelligent Power: formidable EV performance for a wide range of needs
The Nissan Ariya's all-electric drivetrain is an example of seamless integration of advanced EV technology. It takes the excitement and potential of zero-emission mobility to the next level by integrating excellent power delivery, charging capabilities and extended range.
e-4ORCE: Ride comfort and handling without compromise
The twin electric motor, all-wheel-drive Ariya models will 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.
By specifically managing power output and braking performance for smoothness and stability, e-4ORCE enhances driver confidence by tracing the intended driving line over almost any road surface, while never needing to change driving style or input. When cornering on snow-covered roads, for example, the vehicle can faithfully trace the driver's intended line thanks to ultra-high-precision motor and brake control.
A smooth, powerful on-road presence
Staying true to Nissan's heritage of producing fun-to-drive, exciting cars, the Ariya's all-new EV platform has been optimized to deliver exceptional handling. Suspension components are optimized to take advantage of this, ensuring 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.
Intelligent Driving: a high-tech, low-stress driving experience
The Ariya ensures high levels of comfort and confidence by providing occupants with the latest Nissan technologies, including ProPILOT 2.0 advanced driver assistance and ProPILOT Remote Park.
ProPILOT 2.0 is the newest iteration of Nissan's driver assistance technology. Equipped as standard on the second generation Nissan LEAF, ProPILOT is a hands-on assistance system that helps drivers stay centered in their lane, navigate stop-and-go highway traffic and maintain a set vehicle speed and distance to the vehicle ahead.
Intelligent Integration: keeping the Nissan Ariya up-to-date and at maximum potential
The Ariya embodies Nissan's philosophy of designing vehicles around the driver, making them both intuitive and exciting. 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 Ariya also includes Amazon Alexa to help customers simplify and organize their lives.
As an example of how the Ariya promotes a seamless experience and comfort, drivers can check the status of the Ariya's battery from the comfort of the breakfast table while enjoying a morning coffee. While driving, the system monitors road conditions and suggests alternative routes to keep travel times short. By using the NissanConnect smartphone app, calibration of the Ariya's climate controls can be set just the way the driver likes, even before entering the vehicle.
