delayed launch for electric SUV

Due to the coronavirus pandemic and the global semiconductor shortage, Nissan is forced to delay the launch of the Ariya. Expected from mid-2021 in Japan, the electric SUV will not finally arrive before the end of the year.

Bad news if you’ve been anxiously awaiting the release of the Nissan Ariya: the all-electric SUV will be launched with a little delay.

Several months late for Ariya

Nissan had initially planned to release the Ariya in the Japanese market from mid-2021. But ultimately, the model’s launch in Japan was postponed to “this winter”, said Executive Vice President Asako Hoshino. “Sales in the United States and Europe will arrive approximately two months later,” added the manager.

This postponement is due to the coronavirus pandemic and at the semiconductor shortage which currently affects the entire automotive industry.

A promising SUV

As a reminder, the Ariya is a 4.60 m long zero-emission SUV (1.85 m wide, 1.66 m high and 2.78 m wheelbase) which inaugurates a new modular platform of the Renault-Nissan Alliance (CMF-EV). Spacious and high-tech (digital panel with two 12.3-inch screens, level 2 autonomous driving system, active parking assistance, intelligent pedals, etc.), it will offer the choice between 5 power levels (218 and 242 hp in two-wheel drive and 279, 306 or 394 hp in e-4orce four-wheel drive) and 2 battery capacities (63 or 87 kWh). All for a range of up to 500 km.

Even though the launch date has been pushed back, customers can already express their interest in the Ariya on a website dedicated to the model.
