2023 Nissan Ariya EV reservations open, prices start at $ 47,125

Ready to roll next fall.


2023 Nissan Ariya coming, and on Tuesday, the automaker announced that reservations are officially open for the SUV along with pricing. The cheapest way into an Ariya will cost buyers $ 47,125 after a $ 1,175 destination fee, but the cost rises to just over $ 60,000 when you choose a top model.

The trim division for Ariya is quite simple with the Venture Plus trimming acting as a base model, Ariya Evolve Plus as a mid-range option and Platinum Plus as a row-topping version. For those participating in the booking process, a special edition model is also available. It is the Premiere equipment that will not be sold at dealers when Nissan starts supplying them with the electric car next year. Every trim except Platinum Plus has an 87 kilowatt-hour battery with 238 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque. The EPA estimates are not in yet, but Nissan believes it will handle 300 miles on a single charge. Front-wheel drive is the only option for these three trims.

For the Platinum Plus model, it gets a twin-engine setup to create four-wheel drive with the same battery. However, the extra engine provides a total of 389 hp and 442 pound-feet of torque. However, more power from the same battery results in a range of 265 miles from Nissan.

We do not have complete breakdowns of what comes with each trim in terms of features and comfort yet, but go up from Venture Plus trim to Evolve Plus and the price grows to $ 50,125, and Platinum Plus inches to $ 60,125. No wonder it’s priced almost identically to an entry level Tesla Model Y. As for the special Ariya Premiere trim, it starts at $ 54,625. We know that this model boasts some unique wheels, badges and illuminated kick plates.

If you are ready to get into an Ariya next year, the process seems pretty simple. All that is required is a refundable $ 500 security deposit, from which customers select an EV-certified Nissan dealer for delivery. All of this can be done online with the option of having the dealer deliver to a customer’s home, or if you feel old-fashioned, pick it up at your local dealer instead. The first deliveries will start in the early fall of 2022, but AWD models will not be ready until late fall next year.
