Nissan Ariya EV will start at $43,190

After years of hype, Nissan is finally on the verge of releasing its first electric crossover. Autoblog notes that the brand has confirmed that the Ariya EV will hit US dealerships in late fall, starting at $43,190 for the front-wheel drive Engage trim with a 63-kWh battery. Only FWD configurations will ship initially, with some all-wheel drive editions waiting until early 2023. Customers who have reserved the Venture+ model will continue to pay the advertised price of $45,950 instead of $47,190 for new buyers.

This Starter Engage variant delivers an estimated range of 216 miles and 214 horsepower. That’s modest, but you also get a solid tech suite, with driver and safety aids (like the handy ProPilot Assist), a heads-up display and a 12.3-inch infotainment system with Alexa, wireless Apple CarPlay and wired Android Auto. It’s clearly intended to lower the Ariya’s perceived price point and sell you into higher-end models, but it might do the trick if you’re primarily interested in an around-town people carrier.

You’ll have to pay significantly more to get Nissan’s previously touted performance numbers. The Venture+ jumps to an 87kWh battery, 238hp and the top range of 304 miles. All other front fairings offer up to 289 miles of range. The $50,190 Evolve+ FWD comes with perks like a power sunroof and surround view monitor, while the $53,690 Empower+ FWD includes hands-free ProPilot Assist 2.0 and automated parking.

As usual, all-wheel drive increases performance and prices while reducing range. The $47,190 Engage e-4orce has a range of just 205 miles but delivers 335 horsepower. The $51,190 Engage+ e-4orce extends that range to 270 miles while delivering 389 horsepower and the goodies of its FWD counterpart. The Evolve+ e-4orce is $54,190, while those who insist on the best can pick up the Platinum+ for $60,190 with 265 miles of range, a no-touch tailgate and nappa leather seats along with the luxuries of other models.

The Ariya might not be the most valuable EV. There’s no mention of destination fee, and Japanese manufacturing excludes the updated $7,500 federal tax credit (state credits may still be valid). Still, the machine may be worth considering if Ford’s Mustang Mach-E, VW ID.4, and other electric crossovers don’t quite offer the mix of design or technology you’re looking for.
