The All-Electric Nissan Ariya US Pricing Announced, Starts at $43,190

Nissan has announced the pricing of the electric crossover Nissan Ariya for the US market and the prices will start at $43,190 (excluding destination charges). Nissan Ariya will finally go on sale later this fall and will be available in six trim levels. Buyers will have the option to choose between two different capacity battery packs and a front-wheel drive or an all-wheel drive option. However, initially, only front-wheel drive variants will be available for sale and the all-wheel-drive variants are expected to arrive in spring 2023.

In the official press release, Nissan’s US Director, EV marketing and sales, Aditya Jairaj said:

“The Nissan Ariya is an important part of our ambitious 2030 goals to drive electrified mobility for all. With Nissan offering an EV option for almost any driver, we’re excited for customers to experience a seamless transition to driving electric.”

The prices for the Nissan Ariya mentioned above do not include the destination charges and the Ariya does not even qualify for the Federal EV tax credits of $7,500, as it is not being manufactured in North America. So the prices for the electric crossover will effectively start from  $44,485 after the addition of destination charges of $1,295. 

Nissan also clarified that the customers who had pre-ordered the Nissan Ariya in November 2021, will still be able to purchase the crossover at the special reservation price. These folks will get the Venture+ FWD model which is the second base model in the lineup and also has the longer-range battery pack, for the early reservation price of $45,950, which otherwise costs $47,190 for the 2023 model.

The entry-level Nissan Ariya will have a front-wheel drive setup coupled with a 63 kWh battery pack which will offer a driving range of 216 miles. The FWD variants of the Evolve+, Empower+, and Premiere have an EPA-estimated range of 289 miles, while the Venture+ variant delivers the highest of them all with 304 miles. However, the EPA-certified range for the all-wheel drive variants has not been revealed yet. 

Nissan Ariya is being offered in a good mix of variants in terms of price, driving range, single motor or dual motor, and power output so it is up to the buyer to decide wisely which trim best fulfills their needs and also fits within the budget. In the US market, Nissan’s electric crossover will be competing against similarly sized BEVs such as the Volkswagen ID. 4, Hyundai Ioniq 5, Kia EV6, Chevrolet Blazer EV, etc.
