The Venture+ FWD offers the highest range in the lineup with an EPA-estimated 304 miles (489 kilometers) between charges. The front-drive versions of the Evolve+, Empower+, and Premiere can go 289 miles (465 kilometers). The front-drive Engage offers 216 miles (348 kilometers) of driving. The EPA doesn't yet have figures for the all-wheel drive models.
The front-drive versions of the Ariya have an electric motor offering two outputs. The base Engage trim has 214 horsepower (160 kilowatts) and 221 pound-feet (300 Newton-meters) of torque. All of the other trim levels have 238 hp (178 kW) and 221 lb-ft.
Similarly, the all-wheel-drive Engage has 335 hp (250 kW) and 413 lb-ft (560 Nm). The other grades have 389 hp (290 kW) and 442 lb-ft (599 Nm).
All Ariyas include the Nissan Safety Shield 360 tech suite, ProPilot Assist with Navi-link, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, and a 12.3-inch infotainment screen. The Empower+ and Premiere grades come with ProPilot Assist 2.0 hands-free steering assist and ProPilot Park.
Nissan delayed the launch of the Ariya due to supply change disruptions. It originally wanted to launch the EV in Japan in mid-2021. It eventually pushed that date back by about a year.
