Nissan Ariya price, release date, range, interior, and specs for the 2023 EV crossover
Nissan was one of the first in the EV game with the Leaf, and it hopes the Ariya will take EVs to everyday Americans.
Nissan was one of the first carmakers to launch an EV with the first-generation Leaf more than a decade ago. Now it’s taking all that knowledge and rolling it into the Ariya, the first of 15 different electric vehicles Nissan plans to launch by 2030.
The new Ariya will start at $45,950 with a Nissan-estimated 300-mile range, and it’s one of the better-looking EVs coming out in the next year or so.
Here’s everything you need to know about the new Nissan Ariya, from release date, price, and specs to range and charging time.
This story is developing and will be updated as more information becomes available.
What is the Nissan Ariya release date?
Nissan says Ariya deliveries will begin in the fall of 2022 beginning with FWD models, and AWD models following later.
What’s the Nissan Ariya’s price?
There are three trim levels for the FWD Ariya, and an ultimate Platinum+ AWD version available for preorder, all with the larger battery:

- Ariya Evolve+ FWD - $48,950
- Ariya Premiere FWD - $53,450
- Ariya Platinum+ e-4ORCE AWD - $58,950
Nissan wrote us to point out that there will be five additional trim levels of the Ariya coming, all with “standard” size — AKA smaller — batteries, starting at around $40,000.
What’s the Nissan Ariya’s range?
Nissan says the Ariya’s estimated range will vary based on trim level (likely thanks to extra weight from adding new tech and features), with the Venture+ FWD having an estimated 300-mile range, and the Ariya AWD having a 265-mile estimated range. Both the Evolve+ and Premiere FWD options will have up to a 285-mile range.
What is the Nissan Ariya charging time?

What’s the Nissan Ariya’s horsepower and torque?
The FWD version of the Ariya has 238 hp and 221 lb-ft of torque, while the AWD dual-motor version of the Ariya has a sporty 389 hp and 442 lb-ft of torque.
What’s the Nissan Ariya’s 0-60 time and top speed?

Is the Nissan Ariya self-driving?
No, but it will have available ProPILOT Assist 2.0 which combines adaptive cruise control and steering assist to give hands-off single-lane driving. Expect more on this closer to launch.
