Nissan has recently announced pricing for the upcoming Ariya model in Norway, where the car is now available for pre-order (as the first market in Europe).

There are four versions of the Japanese all-electric crossover/SUV. The entry-level version with a 66 kWh battery and front-wheel drive starts at 409,900 NOK (€40,018 / $47,280).

That's 86% more than for the entry-level Nissan LEAF with 40 kWh battery - at 219,900 NOK (€21,468 / $25,364), and 44% more than the LEAF e+ with 62 kWh battery 284,070 NOK (€27,733 / $32,766).

  • Ariya 63 kWh (FWD): 409,900 NOK (€40,018 / $47,280)
  • Ariya 87 kWh (FWD): 499,900 NOK (€48,805 / $57,662)

We guess that in the U.S. the Nissan Ariya will start at roughly $40,000 (before incentives) to be competitive with other EVs, like the Volkswagen ID.4 ($39,995).

Customer deliveries of the car in Norway will start in Summer 2022 as the Ariya is unfortunately noticeably delayed. In the U.S. it might be later than that.

Four versions

There are a total of four versions of the Nissan Ariya all-electric crossover/SUV, with two battery options and two powertrain options (front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive).

Interestingly, the small battery version will be available only with the front-wheel-drive system (a year ago, it was indicated that there will also be an all-wheel-drive version with the small battery).
