Nissan Ariya


Nissan introduced  a new mid-sized SUV with up to 300 miles of range called the Ariya, priced around $40,000 before rebates. Scheduled to go on sale in Japan mid-2021, and in the US and Canada later in the year. Buyers of Nissan’s electric and hybrid vehicles are still eligible for the full $7,500 federal tax credit and various state incentives, which depending on the state you live could help reduce the cost by up to $10,000 in the USA.

Mid-sized modern electric SUVs are a popular segment; A well appointed EV priced at $30,000 has the potential to sell in large volumes.

A little shorter than a Nissan Rogue, and about 4 inches shorter than the Tesla Model Y, its in the middle of the very popular a mid-sized truck segment. Front-wheel, and all-wheel-drive configurations, with battery configurations of 63kWh and 87kWh, meaning 215 to 300 mile range.

Nissan plans to introduce more 8 (or more) “pure EVs” by 2023.

On unknown is how long it takes to charge the Ariya. Potential buyers prefer vehicles take no longer than 15-20 minutes to reach 80% of full capacity.

Autonomous driving as popularized by Tesla is another target of the legacy automakers. Nissan advanced driver assistance system is called ProPilot Assist 2.0. “Designed for on-ramp to off-ramp (ramp-to-ramp) highway driving,” its a move in the direction towards Tesla’s AutoPilot.

I keep coming back to how much Elon Musk and Tesla have shifted the entire automaker paradigm:

“What’s interesting is that Tesla has forced the rest of the automotive industry to go along with it. Other carmakers, perhaps having learned a lesson from watching Apple and Amazon destroy competitors, have switched rather than fight. Instead of ceding the electric-vehicle market to the Silicon Valley-based interloper, they have responded aggressively to the e-threat.”

The automakers don’t want to get “Amazon-ed.” Credit Musk, along with Jeff Bezos, for scaring the entire industry into the future.
