All-new Nissan Ariya electric coupe unveiled

17th July 2020 | Steve Lumley

Watch out - there's an impressive new EV with 310 miles of range heading our way.

As the market for electric vehicles in the UK begins to heat up, the new Nissan Ariya is an electric coupe that may well set the new standard.

It's 10 years since the Nissan Leaf was unveiled but the offering will open up the sector to new fans.

Particularly, for those who like a car with decent performance.

The figures from Nissan reveal that the Ariya is capable of going from 0 to 62 mph in just 5.1 seconds. That's down to the electric motor producing 394bhp and the car having all-wheel-drive to deliver the necessary grip.

It's also available in two-wheel drive which will deliver the 310 miles of range.

New electric vehicle from Nissan

Interestingly, the new electric vehicle from Nissan will charge more quickly than its Leaf will.

However, the Nissan Ariya has been launched at an interesting time, with other electric cars coming our way.

Among them is the impressive Tesla Model Y, the BMW iX3 and the mind-boggling Ford Mustang Mach-e.

The new model has clean design lines and rather than having a grille, there's a textured shield that is the home for the car’s sensors including the excellent ProPilot driving assistance technology.

The air curtain intakes help to boost efficiency, and there are super slim LED headlights.

Interior of the Nissan Ariya

The interior of the Nissan Ariya highlights that drivers will enjoy a calming environment with visual simplicity.

There are two 12.3-inch touchscreens set into the dashboard plus a range of display choices.

This is also a new electric platform with a battery sitting beneath the floor to create the spacious environment.

When it's available for buying or leasing, the Nissan Ariya will have a choice of two battery capacities, either 63 kWh or 87 kWh.

Nissan has also developed a water-cooled battery charging system so the battery is quicker to recharge - and the battery has been designed for the new CCS connector in Europe – and this is set to be the British standard too.

There's a lot to like about the new Nissan Ariya and when it's available for leasing or to buy, the Tilsun Leasing team will carry out a review to highlight the pros and cons of what this all-electric vehicle can deliver on British roads.

There's no indication on price yet but the Nissan Ariya is likely to cost around £40,000 - so will be cheaper than most of its rivals - and be a sound choice as a leasing option for an electric car.
