Nissan announced the pricing of the 2024 Ariya model, which became noticeably less expensive to improve competitiveness.

The 2024 Nissan Ariya with a 66-kilowatt-hour battery (in Engage trim) saw a price reduction of $3,600, or up to 8.3%. The 91-kWh battery version (Venture+, Evolve+, Empower+, and Platinum+ trims) is $6,000 less, or up to 12.7%, than it sold for previously.

Ariya Is Nissan's Primary EV Right Now

The long-awaited Nissan Ariya joined the Leaf in late 2022 and right away became selling in higher volumes than the Leaf. In 2023, Nissan sold in the U.S. 20,616 EVs, including 13,464 Ariyas.

The entry-level Nissan Ariya Engage with single-motor, front-wheel drive (FWD) and a 66-kWh battery starts at an MSRP of $39,590, plus a $1,390 destination charge. The switch to the all-wheel drive (AWD) version costs $4,000.

However, we do not think the Engage trim will be popular because the long-range (91 kWh) versions received a more significant price cut and the Nissan Ariya Venture+ FWD starts at an MSRP of $41,190.

The difference between Venture+ and Engage FWD is just $1,600. For that money, you get a substantially bigger battery, more range, higher power output and the ability to tow something, up to 1,500 pounds.

The top-of-the-line Nissan Ariya Platinum starts at $54,190, compared to over $60,000 a year ago.

The Nissan Ariya does not qualify for the $7,500 federal tax credit because the model is imported to the U.S. from Japan. However, the incentive might be available through leasing.

Trisha Jung, senior director, EV Strategy and Transformation at Nissan U.S. said: "As the electric vehicle market continues to develop and grow, the revised pricing for the 2024 Ariya will improve the model's competitiveness and ensure we are delivering maximum value to our customers."

When it comes to specs, the 2024 model year is basically the same as the outgoing 2023 model year. According to Nissan's website, the main specs—including the EPA Combined range—remain the same. See results for the 2023 model year here.

The 66-kWh battery is expected to offer 216 miles of range for the FWD model or 205 miles for the AWD one. The 91-kWh battery will return up to 304 miles in FWD trims. The AWD versions are more electron-hungry and go up to 272 miles.

Just like before, the Nissan Ariya is equipped with a 7.2-kilowatt on-board charger. A full recharge takes 10.5 hours (66 kWh) or 15 hours (91 kWh).

The DC fast charging capability is limited to 130 kW. Charging from 20 to 80% state-of-charge (SOC) is promised to take 35 minutes (66 kWh) or 40 minutes (91 kWh).

The 2024 Nissan Ariya is equipped with a CCS charging port. Starting in 2025, Nissan will begin offering EVs for the U.S. and Canadian markets with a Tesla-developed North American Charging Standard (NACS) port. Before that, a NACS to CCS adapter for Nissan Ariya will be available "later this year." Ford already has one and more brands will follow throughout the year.
