New Electric Nissan Ariya For Sale in Vienna,VA

The coming 2023 Nissan Ariya SUV: Designed to overcome the challenges

The all-electric new 2023 Nissan Ariya is expected to arrive at Priority Nissan Tysons in the fall of 2022. The exterior has a stylishly-curved silhouette that's a welcome departure from the more angular designs that have characterized some electric vehicles. Coupled with technological advances, Nissan hopes to break through the barriers and challenges that concern many buyers about electric vehicles.

For years, many electrics have been running into roadblocks

At Priority Nissan Tysons, we know many customers are reluctant to make a substantial investment in an electric vehicle because of concerns about charging these vehicles, the limited driving range and concerns about reliabiltiy. Nissan is hoping to overcome some of these limitations with the new 2023 Nissan Ariya. Here are some of the strengths, the very real challenges and how the new Nissan is addressing the issues that concern you.

Performance

It's reported that the new 2023 Nissan Ariya will offer both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive. The editors at Car & Driver have estimated that the new Ariya will zoom from zero-to-60 in a very rapid 5 seconds, or even less. We are not aware of whether that speed has been confirmed, but it's better than many might expect from an electric vehicle. While front-wheel drive will be slower, acceleration is generally a strength of electric models.

Improved driving range

Many people are aware of the fact that all-electric vehicles like the coming Nissan simply don't have the longer driving ranges of the gasoline-powered vehicles we're all used to. Nissan has stated that the new 2023 Nissan Ariya will have a maximum driving range of 300 miles. This would be a significant improvement over the Nissan Leaf that can go only about 226 miles before it needs a recharge. The 300-mile span is a big step in the right direction.

Shortening the extended charging times: A core issue

For generations, drivers around the world have taken for granted the convenience of filling up our gas-powered vehicles in about 5 minutes. We've also become used to gas stations within a few miles of almost any street we travel on while charging stations can be hard to find. Nissan isn't attempting to build a lot of charging stations, but they are working on reducing the required charging times that can last up to 12 hours or more.

The new 2023 Nissan Ariya being built for North America will be powered by a single 91 kWh battery option. What that would mean for you as an owner is that your charging time would be about 12 hours for any model that uses the 7.7 kilowatt charging system that would be installed on board. The best option is a DC fast-charger that could bring the battery from 10% charged to 80% as quickly as 45 minutes.

Questions that still need to be addressed

It's been reported that the new Ariya can be charged at home using a 240-volt outlet, which would be an extra cost for most people. It's expected that consumers could use a standard 110-volt system but will that require more charging time than you can be comfortable with? More answers are needed about the DC fast-charging systems: How many are there? Where are they located? How reliable are they? We're keeping an eye on these issues.

Interior and next steps

All the specifics of the new Ariya's interior have not been spelled out but early photos suggest designers are working to keep the appearance simple, minimalistic and as free of buttons as possible. Of course, we recognize there are many questions you still have about electric vehicles. At Priority Nissan Tysons in Vienna, VA, we invite you to browse our current new inventory and ask us any questions you have about the coming 2023 Nissan Ariya.
