2021 Nissan Ariya
These new patent drawings for the production version of the Ariya EV look very similar to the concept we saw last year (color pix)
Which is actually not that surprising. Since the concept looked very close to production. (It even had fake rear side windows)
The concept looked great, and I am sure the production model has the potential to be quite a hit for Nissan. If priced right.
This looks quite compact, and will mainly compete with the upcoming Chevrolet “Bolt based Crossover” and existing models like the Hyundai Kona EV or electric version of the Kia Niro.
Let’a hope they price it low enough to compete. The long range Leaf is already starting at over $38 000. A crazy price that puts it right agains the superior Tesla Model 3.
The new Ariya needs to start at under $35 000 it Nissan wants to sell any.
Maybe this will basically replace the leaf in the US line up?
No matter what, this is shaping up top be a very nice looking car. Which is great news.
