Nissan is debuting their major EV later this year, the Nissan Ariya. This new EV will join the Leaf in Nissan’s electric lineup, but it’s reported that yet another new EV isn’t too far away. Let’s break down all the information we have so far regarding this new EV from Nissan.
This upcoming EV, which has yet to have had a name released to the public, will use a shortened version of the Ariya’s CMF-EV platform. The goal of this new EV is to be a more compact version of the Ariya. It’s said that this EV will be around the same size as the Nissan Juke, putting it squarely in the subcompact SUV market. The new EV will also carry over the Ariya’s E-4ORCE all-wheel-drive system.
Nissan will use a smaller version of the Ariya’s battery pack for this new EV, meaning though the interior of this new EV may be similar in size to the Juke, it’s expected to have more space for both passengers and cargo. It’s expected to start at around $41,000 and be released first in the U.K and Europe. Nissan hasn’t confirmed if this new EV will be released in the states, although it’s not too far-fetched to see a U.S. release considering the explosion of popularity in the EV market.
That’s all the information we have right now, but more will likely come out in the following months, so stay tuned!
