For those excited by our first mention of the Ariya electric crossover concept back in February, a recent teaser photo released by Nissan should give you a boost! The teaser is of the Ariya production model, and though difficult to make out, the lines do appear to be strikingly similar to the concept. If you still have some healthy skepticism, also recall past Nissan concepts that have released not too far from their concept designs: models such as the GT-R, Juke, and Leaf have all come to market nearly indiscernible from their preview build.
The Ariya seemed nearly ready for production when we first saw it, and there are rumors that the infotainment and driver displays, as well as the floating dashboard, will also carry over inside. Going even deeper though, expectations are that Nissan’s e-4ORCE all-wheel control system will be powering the vehicle, something the Ariya will likely share with the Leaf in upcoming iterations. Whereas the Leaf currently offers 226 miles of range, this new system is eyeing no less than 300 miles.
