Previously revealed at the Tokyo Motor Show, Nissan today introduced the Nissan Ariya to the world - the company’s first electric crossover SUV.

The vehicle features an 100% electric powertrain, autonomous driving technology, concierge-level assistance, seamless connectivity and a spacious, lounge-like interior. The company puts an estimated range of up to 610 kilometers, making it ideal for daily commutes as well as long-distance weekend road trips.

CEO Makoto Uchida and Chief Operating Officer Ashwani Gupta unveiled the Ariya to a global audience during a livestreamed event at the new Nissan Pavilion in Yokohama.

“The Nissan Ariya is a truly beautiful and remarkable car,” Gupta said. “It enables you to go further, easier and in comfort. The Ariya is designed to impress, and to express what Nissan strives for – making our customers’ lives better.”

The all-new Nissan Ariya is scheduled to go on sale in Japan in mid-2021, be priced at around 5 million yen (AED 171,627). The vehicle will be available in Europe, North America and China by the end of 2021, though Middle East availability has yet to be confirmed.
