Nissan Announces First Electric SUV
July 21, 2020—Nissan reveals their first-ever electric crossover, the Nissan Ariya. Valued at $40,000 the electric SUV features two rows of seating, a battery range of up to 300 miles, and ample space throughout the vehicle.
The Ariya is said to operate more like a sports car than an SUV, reaching speeds of 62mph in a mere 5.1 seconds, reports USA Today. With speed comes safety measures, and the Ariya will offer a more advanced version of Nissan's ProPilot Assist technology which allows for hands-free driving.
The electric SUV, which is set to appear in dealerships late next year, faces up against competitors like Tesla Model Y, the Kia Niro and the Chevrolet Bolt.
