Nissan Canada is now taking reservations for their next battery electric vehicle, the 2023 Nissan Ariya.
Unlike our friends in the US which can only pick between the Venture and Evolve variants, the Canadian lineup sees two new additions, Engage and e-4ORCE, bringing the total number of trims to select from up to 6.
The combinations are a little confusing, especially because the press release and the reservation website shows different figures, but here’s the breakdown.
The entry-level Engage FWD version is equipped with a 63kWh battery pack that will provide up to 346km (215 miles) of estimated range.
The EVOLVE e-4ORCE features the same battery, but comes with an AWD powertrain, reducing the range to an estimated 330km (205 miles). The press release says 328km.
Next up is the VENTURE+ FWD, which features a larger 87kWh battery pack good enough for up to 482km (300 miles) of estimated range.
There is also an Evolve+ FWD variant, with the same 87kWh battery pack, but a lower range of 458km (288 miles). The press release says 463km.
Then there is the top-of-the-line Platinum+ e-4ORCE, which has a dual motor AWD powertrain with 426km (264 miles) of range.
Finally, there is a limited edition PREMIER e-4ORCE, with the same powertrain as the Platinum, but it comes with “unique accessories.”
Pricing information has not been released, but deliveries are expected to begin in the fall of 2022.
First to arrive at dealerships will be the FWD models, followed in the “late fall” by the e-4ORCE AWD mdoels.
Nissan says their new EV will only be available at “Ariya-Certified dealers.”
