    Looks fab in Aurora green.

    It's a lot nicer interior than the VW id range, in my opinion of course, it makes me wonder how in the hell VW decided to go so cheap on the interior ?

    I bet this version of the Ariya would cost probably 60k.

    That's it. See what the 40k option looks like inside. Though the 58k for the id4 max and no fancier interior is probably just cause for a moan. Enyaq probably does better if you want fancy and didn't mind throwing money at a car.

    Any more updates on this? I think at this stage it's up between this and the EV6 for me. I kind of like the Nissan interior better, especially in the lighter interior.

    They are available in Japan to order ( limited spec model) for delivery end of year. Should be on sale here early next year.

    Norway has opened orders for the Ariya. 4 versions. Prices are on the site. Anyone know how they would translate to Ireland.

    Take your worst estimate and add 15% to it I guess. They'll be expensive!


    Surprised to see them up for sale. I assumed the delays would only get worse.

    looks well

    it's interesting to see that, driven by aerodynamic requirements with respect to range, we are seeing a real confluence of designs

    I suspect this will see a leveling out of premium brands vs non premium



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,325 ✭✭✭80sDiesel


    For sure. Will put down a deposit on awd long range in Aurora green with blue leather. May even go for the performance depending on price.

    Are you sure you'll have a choice of interior?



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,325 ✭✭✭80sDiesel


    Not on 63kWh but black/grey/blue on 87 non performance. Norwegian specs so probably same here. ( blue is leather, black/grey fabric)

    Cool. Must take a look.



  • Registered Users Posts: 860 ✭✭✭RainInSummer


    The second from top tier one with 20" wheels and light grey interior is coming in at €55k.

    87kWh AWD. Kind of what I guessed for Ireland. Am very curious to see what it'll land on these shores for.


    I'm kind of torn between this and the EV6. I have this feeling that the looks of the Ariya will grow on you, whereas the EV6 will date rapidly.



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,535 ✭✭✭celtic_oz


    Not sure I agree with this .. but worth considering




  • Registered Users Posts: 860 ✭✭✭RainInSummer


    Good deep dive on the interior. It's in Japanese but pictures speak louder than words:

    I see the Ariya is now being advertised for an April 22 release.


    Very disappointing as it was originally advertised as end 2021.


    I understand the chip shortage issue, but hopefully Nissan use the time to make sure there's no glitches with it like ID ranges



  • Registered Users Posts: 860 ✭✭✭RainInSummer


    Yeah. For me it's probably the pick of the lot between the Ioniq 5, EV6 and this.

    From an immediate first look the EV6 is better looking, but I just feel it'll date so quickly.


    Still wonder how Nissan conspire to get less range from their batteries though. It's quite an achievement for a front runner in the field of EVs.

    They were the fore runner for sure but never front runner in terms of efficiency, Leaf was/is poor efficiency versus newer lads



  • Registered Users Posts: 388 ✭✭DaveByDavid


    Just came across this car today, shame it's not available for delivery until April 2022.

    It feels like the closest dash to the Ioniq 5, but in a more typical SUV style.

    The VW ID4 was nice enough to drive but getting used to the dash after driving an Ioniq 5 was always going to be difficult.



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,325 ✭✭✭80sDiesel


    They are converting the factory to fully automated for the Ariya which probably explains the delay. Qualify should be excellent though.

    The Norwegian site is stating Summer 2022 for deliveries.

    For me the Ariya was the pick of the new bunch, I do worry about a 2020 car arriving in 2022 though. My PCP is due up in 2023, was hoping to see the Ariya out in the wild for a couple of years before making my choice concrete.


    Price on the top end model in Norway translates to €58,000, with the entry level one about €41,000. I know you can't directly compare due to differing tax regimes but it might provide a general ball park.


    Quick edit: It always amazes me how Nissan conspire to get the least amount of range out of their batteries.



  • Registered Users Posts: 860 ✭✭✭RainInSummer


    US spec and pricing up. Late 2022 delivery dates. I think this could knacker Nissan.



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,325 ✭✭✭80sDiesel


    From what I read this Ariya is a quality product. From construction to tech. The materials are supposed to be first class. This all costs money.

    Nissan just slow, they let a lot of competition onto the scene in the Leaf to Ariya gap



  • Registered Users Posts: 860 ✭✭✭RainInSummer


    They were slow and then this delay on top of that. There's too many strong offerings out there now.

    The Ariya might be quality, but there's no shortage of that about. And you can buy it now.



  • Registered Users Posts: 860 ✭✭✭RainInSummer



    Order books open in the UK. Delivery summer 2022. Starting at just under £42k and rising to £58k for the top of the line model.

    Straight currency exchange would see that at €48k to €68k here.

    It’s expensive but the interior quality is premium .
