Nissan has got the new year off to a flying start with the arrival of a new entry grade to the Nissan Ariya line-up and new pricing which is certain to attract new EV buyers to the stylish 100% electric crossover which is now less expensive than the cost of buying an equivalent petrol or diesel car.

The futuristic design of the Nissan Ariya has turned heads since it arrived on Irish roads and Nissan has now moved to broaden its appeal amongst new and existing EV drivers looking for a premium drive experience at a very competitive price.

The newly launched entry-grade 63kWh Nissan Ariya Engage is a step up from the pioneering zero emissions Nissan LEAF with its spacious and luxurious interior also building on the strengths that made the Nissan Qashqai the world’s best-selling crossover.

The new Engage grade is priced at €43,500 (inclusive of Government grants). The 63kWh battery delivers a range of up to 404 kilometres and the car is packed full of safety features and connected technologies usually reserved for higher grade options.

Two battery options are available for the Advance and Evolve grades making it ideal for daily commutes and longer roads trips. The 87kWh battery goes a step further than the 63kWh battery offering a range of up to 524 kilometres.

The 63kWh Advance grade starts at €45,849, while the higher spec Evolve grade with the same battery starts at €48,349. Pricing for the larger 87kWh battery in the Advance grades starts at €54,100 and at €56,300 in the Evolve grade. All of these new prices are inclusive of Government grants.

“Our new pricing is extremely competitive for a family car of this quality. The first thing that you notice when you sit into the all-new Nissan Ariya is its premium feel and spacious interior. The arrival of the Engage grade and our new pricing allows drivers to step up and switch into a more luxurious EV without compromise,” said Seamus Morgan, Managing Director of Nissan Ireland.

“The Nissan Ariya Engage also makes it less expensive to drive an EV. The entry price of €43,500 is on a par, or cheaper, than the cost of buying the same sized petrol or diesel car. This makes transitioning to zero emissions driving even more attractive and Nissan will continue to lead the way in helping motorists to make that change and to play their part in helping Ireland to meet its climate change targets,” he added.

The new Ariya is the most technically advanced Nissan to date. It has been specially designed to meet the needs of tech-savvy customers and to be a partner in an increasingly connected world. Wireless Apple Carplay, cabled Android, and Intelligent Personal Assistant technology all come as standard.

Standard safety features include Intelligent Forward Collision Warning, Intelligent Driver Alertness, Intelligent Cruise Control, Intelligent Lane Intervention, Blind Spot Warning and Blind Spot Intervention, and Rear Emergency Braking and Cross Traffic Alert technology.  Nissan’s revolutionary e-Pedal technology allows drivers to launch, accelerate and decelerate using only the accelerator.

The interior of the new Nissan Ariya redefines how drivers interact with technology. The minimalist dashboard is devoid of the usual buttons and switches. Primary control functions vibrate when touched and only appear when the car is switched on. The reimagined interior allows for an entirely flat floor, resulting in a wide, open lounge-like experience and the most spacious cabin in its class.

The top of the range 87kWh Ariya Evolve comes with a Wireless Phone Charger, part PVC/Synthetic suede seats, Intelligent Rear View Mirror, a Heads Up Display (HUD), ProPILOT Park, ventilated (heated and cooled) front seats, heated rear seats, a Bose 10-speaker sound system and an openable panoramic sunroof.
