    I have a Kia Niro EV and BMW i3. I can say that putting the charge port in the front of the car is the best solution. I pull right in with my Niro and never have a problem reaching the car with the cable. Not so on the BMW i3 and I love watching Tesla’s pulling in backwards. Such a needless thing.

    The Ariya looks great. I hope that they come up with better colors and lose the i3 vibes. The only weird thing that I noticed for the first time thanks to your review at 14:00 is that the front passenger floor curves up quite early, close to the seat. I wonder how comfy it is sitting with your feet up like that. I also hope that they will integrate electric or mechanical footrests like in the Ioniq 5 (but faster deployment).

    i would take this for 30k base model

    If only boot was more square. It's nice in terms of floor area, but that coupe-like roof with that shallow slope means it looses a bit in terms or practicality. Large items and pets might not be easy to carry

    We are Nissan-Fans (GTR) in Switzerland also waiting for the Ariya e-4orce Performance. Thanks for showing us all these details. We are only unhappy about the trunk or the space for the cables as we have a Schmidt Dog Box for our Gordon Setter filling the thing. Unfortunately also the show car has no Glass Roof to see how the available space from the headroom will be reduced. Actually our PEUGEOT 3008 HYbrid4 offers a perfect trunk for our hunting dog with a split lid, e.g. same as Range Rover and has had just all the Nissan offers, but some 8 years ago. So we are wondering how it looks with other interior color than black and the glass sunroof and of course how it performs on our mountain roads. P.S. Dear Björn where could we got 5 COVID-19-Masks as per your example for our people here (success (at) swissonline (dot) ch). Many thanks in advance...

    Hey, a tip if you want to measure phone charging speeds more accurately; try the app "AccuBattery" on Android, it will show you much more detailed battery information, including charge rates.

    Just by the shape I can tell it's going to be thirstier than what most Leaf owners would expect. I hope better than e-tron. I am excited to see Nissan with an updated vehicle. I'll take bare plastic or coated metal vs the fabric board dirt connectors of the Tesla Model 3 wheel arches

  • CatViAnh

    I thought it has sunroof but in this demo there's no sunroof. Maybe it is not in production yet is it correct?

  • LedoBuilds

    “front mud flap” is actually for aero to push the air around the wheel instead of running into it.

    I'm impressed. Good job Nissan!

    Rapid charging, and availability of chargers for those on the move, remains very important. The likes of Amazon makes purchases easy, yet some of these charge point supply sites make purchases unnecessarily complex or 'fiddly.' for the narrators criticism of Uk charge points. It is NOT a criticism of the I Pace or other EV such as the Ariya, but a criticism of Tesla own their sites I believe. Perhaps Govt. is missing an opportunity here to build sites and benefit from the income? Too many suppliers of charge points with differing access protocols ( cards, downloading apps. etc.) I would like an EV but until the chaotic and slow roll out of Rapid charging points improves the nI will stick, for now, to hybrids that can be topped up from home and also negate "Range anxiety" caused by perceived lack of access to RAPID chargers. NOTE: I say 'Rapid' as opposed to the many slow chargers dotted about the country. Video:

    thank you for the review! I looks like it isn't a mudflap on the rear, but a deflector for better drag

  • Malus Darkblade

    Aryia must have relatively bad crash proofing when hit from the front since there is no frunk. Nissan may have put in huge reinforcements and thus this will increase weight. This may lead to understeer/oversteer issues. Weight distribution will be terrible relative to a skateboard design. Truly a shit design....from first principles.

    What is the ground clearance? You were so close. You would be the first one with this information as I can't find it anywhere, and I have looked. Is it more or less then the model Y as a comparison?

    Ooh that center deck if it's not moving could've killed the car! But thank God. It missing spare tire! Also interior materials sounds like sunny so cheap & not sound isolated! Hope these cons are only on this pre production! Then it'll be on the list of my EV SUVs to buy in the future! Thank you so much for the great sneak peek!

  • Mike Gipson

    The head space is a bit poor - especially in the back - strange for such a new SUV design. As you pointed out - only really a 4 seater. Hopefully you can do a banana box test and give one the full 'Bjorn' treatment soon :)

    Hey Bjorn those are not mud flaps they are aero flaps só the wind doesn't impact the wheels then the car can be more aerodinamic

  • gregs1020

    If Nissan can do anything, it's paint a car. that paint looks amazing. i'm really looking forward to this hitting the US market.

    The charging port door opens the wrong way. The cable will come from the front of the car and it will be difficult to plug in, especially as HPC cables are not very flexible.

    • Bjørn Nyland
      Bjørn Nyland

      Many HPCs have the plugs in a slight downward angle like a pistol. The charge port will hopefully not be in the way for the plug.

    My 2020 Subaru in Thailand has headlight washers which pop out like these, and the headlights look ahead and around corners as I turn the wheel. Very cool and worth having!

    i have a 19 Altima, and the cameras are not great, to be kind,also Pro pilot assist, is also terrible, auto steering is dangerous,you can't trust is at all, its usually late to turn..and i think its all down to older cameras.

  • gelisob

    my old 2013 leaf does have headight washers, same style, popup and spray :) Weird that they removed that on the facelift. The "front mudflaps" are not mudflaps but air spoilers, to direct airflow around the wheel. Leaf has them too in front. Not directly at wheel well. I wonder did they still stay with the bad parking brake style, keeping it inside rear disk? That just corrodes away so badly.. specially on flatter country where it's not used almost at all. Maybe check if u get to drive it :)

    The flaps in front of the wheel are there for aerodynamic reason. It will cause less turbulence.

    the front mudflaps are not mudflaps, they are aerodynamic flaps to flow the air away from the wheels and they help in sidewind as well

    Nissan should focus on range because what they did with the first leave and also with the second leave was beyond ridiculous.
