Nissan’s first all-electric crossover delivers on its lofty ambitions
Nissan have an impressive pedigree when it comes to building popular family cars. The Qashqai has been one of the UK’s best-sellers over the past decade and for good reason.
The success of which created plenty of excitement for the announcement of Nissan's first electric crossover, the Ariya.
Bigger and wider than the Qashqai, it’s a notable step up from the family favourite and it’s gunning for the likes of the Tesla Model Y, Skoda Enyaq, Kia EV6, Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Ford Mustang Mach-e. Tough competition.
