What should I be paying?
Prices start from £46,145, which gets you a front-drive Ariya with a 63kWh battery. £51,895 gets you the bigger 87kWh battery. Want AWD? Prices start from £54,595.
On lease you’re looking at £610, £690 and £730 over four years with a 10,000-mile yearly limit and £5k down payment through Nissan’s own finance scheme.
The Ariya looks pricey compared to some of its competitors, but that's largely down to the big battery and tech. There's no stripped-out or pointlessly sporty version either. Yeah Enyaq vRS, we're looking at you.
Even the base Advantage model gets LEDs, 19in wheels, all-round park cameras, the ProPilot system, heat pump, heated seats and steering wheel and windscreen, the haptic switchgear and big screens, full connectivity and OTA updates.
Next trim is Evolve (roughly a £4k uplift), which adds a panoramic sunroof, power moving centre console, heated and cooled electrically adjustable front seats, 10-speaker Bose sound system sound, and head-up display.
If it was our money, we’d be tempted by the single motor variant with the bigger battery, which offers more than adequate performance and, most importantly of all, the greatest 329-mile range. As ever, that’s more pertinent than the 0-62mph time.
The entry-level Advance trim seems like it packs more than enough kit, though you can add the panoramic sunroof for £1,295 or the tech pack (including Bose tech pack and HUD) for £1,750. Without, you’re looking at £51,895, or £690 on lease.
