Two colors - Akatsuki Copper and Aurora Green - were developed specifically for the Ariya.

Nissan has unveiled today a bespoke paint palette for its upcoming all-electric Ariya model, which marks a new chapter of electrification for the Japanese brand.

There will be a total of 10 colors - four monotone and six two-tone options - including two, Akatsuki Copper and Aurora Green, developed especially for Ariya.

  • Akatsuki Copper: "Inspired by the Japanese phrase for ‘dawn’, Akatsuki Copper’s striking appearance mimics the brilliance of a sunrise, reflecting the beginning of Nissan’s new brand identity. Its metallic sparkle is enhanced to evoke the conductivity of copper wires, honouring the model’s advanced EV technology."
  • Aurora Green: - "takes its name from the beautiful ‘Northern Lights’ phenomenon, aurora borealis, commonly seen in the arctic. A sophisticated blend of different tones means the colour may appear green or purple depending on the angle that it is viewed, creating a sense of wonder and intrigue."
