First drive, Nissan Ariya: the stable relationship

Nissan invited the media out for a day at the track with the Nissan Ariya, the company’s long awaited second EV. After spending time driving and goofing with the crossover, I realize this vehicle is simply amazing. I think the Ariya is exactly what the American buying public would want and expect from an EV – the kind of predictable car you can settle down with in the fall and make plans for the future.

But, will someone snatch it up if you go on a summer fling with Tesla?

Nissan shifts EV strategy to premium vehicles, not ‘discount cars’ like Leaf

Under new leadership, Nissan wants to reclaim its leadership in electric vehicles. But it’s going to downplay affordable electric cars like the Leaf hatchback. Instead, newly minted CEO Makoto Uchida wants Nissan EVs to have robust features, long range, and higher prices that would bring higher profits. The new strategy will start with a new pure-electric crossover SUV, based on the Ariya concept, that would sell in Europe for the equivalent of between $55,000 and $78,000.
