Nissan Ariya rakes in awards

In 2022, Nissan started sales of the Nissan Ariya all-electric crossover. The Ariya utilises the latest design language and technologies, such as e-4ORCE all-wheel drive control and ProPilot 2.0 advanced driver support. The Ariya’s sophisticated design won the Auto Colour Award 2021 Grand Prix in Japan and the Red Dot Design Award in Germany. The Ariya was also named in the Wards top 10 Best interiors and user experience list and finished third in this year’s European Car of the Year competition.

In addition the Nissan Ariya’s dual motor e-4ORCE all-wheel drive system was named to Wards 10 Best Engines & Propulsion Systems list for 2023.

Ariya models with e-4ORCE technology use dual electric motors to deliver power to all four wheels. By physically managing power output and braking performance for smoothness and stability, e-4ORCE enhances driver confidence by following the steered driving line over almost any road surface.

The Nissan Ariya represents the best of Nissan design, technology, performance and sustainability. Smooth, powerful acceleration and available ProPilot Assist 2.0 advanced driver assistance technology elevate Ariya’s driving capabilities and make it the perfect partner for daily freeway commutes and road trips.

Commercial vehicles with electric propulsion contribute to success

Under its commercial vehicle offering, Nissan launched its first electric commercial vehicle in Europe when the e-NV200 went to work. This model went on to sell more than 45 000 units across Europe, before its successor, the Nissan Townstar EV, went on sale earlier this year.

19 new models to be launched in next six years

Under its Nissan Ambition 2030 long-term vision, Nissan plans to launch 19 EV models globally before 2030. Nissan also aims to launch electric vehicles powered by their own solid-state batteries by 2028 while continuing to expand its EV line up to meet the diverse needs of customers around the world.

In the coming year Nissan will launch two new electric vehicles previewed by the Chill-Out concept and an all-new compact electric vehicle that is set to take up the entry-level position in Nissan’s electrified line up.
