Built on an all-new Alliance-developed EV platform, Ariya is the ultimate expression of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, Nissan's vision to further improve the appeal of its vehicles and achieve its ultimate goal of a future with zero tailpipe emissions and virtually zero vehicle fatalities.
The Nissan Ariya's all-electric drivetrain is an example of seamless integration of advanced EV technology, integrating excellent power delivery, charging capabilities and extended range. With four core models offered, including two-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive versions, Ariya is designed to meet the driving needs of a wide range of customers.
Both Ariya front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive models offer a choice of 63 kWh of usable battery capacity – ideal for urban commuters and first time EV owners looking for quality and style in their next-generation EV – or 87 kWh. The 87 kWh models' additional battery capacity delivers the additional range for those looking to venture on longer journeys.
The twin electric motor, all-wheel-drive Ariya models feature Nissan's most advanced all-wheel control technology, e-4ORCE. The "e" in e-4ORCE stands for Nissan's 100% electric motor drive system. "4ORCE" (pronounced force) refers to the vehicle's physical power and energy, with "4" representing all-wheel control.
Born from the company's rich history of developing memorable all-terrain vehicles and sports cars, e-4ORCE is the spiritual offspring of the Nissan GT-R's ATTESA E-TS torque split system and the intelligent all-wheel-drive systems found in Nissan's lineup of crossovers and SUVs.
By specifically managing power output and braking performance for smoothness and stability, e-4ORCE enhances driver confidence by tracing the steered driving line over almost any road surface.
In addition to optimizing front and rear torque allocation, the system applies independent brake control at each of the four wheels to maximize the cornering force generated by each one. This delivers cornering that faithfully follows driver inputs with minimal steering adjustments.
