Are the rims going to be standard with this one or will that be an extra feature? I love the way they work with the curves and shape of this SUV. This colour, while not my favourite of the bunch, it is growing on me the more I see it.

This looks even sleeker than I remembered. I haven't looked at the interior pictures in a few months but wow, that is a stunner. I love how simple and modern it is without making it feel lifeless like I have seen in other electric cars.

Thanks for this information! This actually answered a few questions I had about the Ariya. Saves me the trouble of making more threads. Going to bookmaker this page to reference back to.

What testing will be done?

I am only somewhat familiar with testing of standard SUVs, not electric ones and I am not very formally with Japanese models in general.

What sorts of testing do they do over at Nissan to ensure the Ariya is going to perform well with no issues?

I love that this is expanding. I think it is great because it will open up more people to switching and eventually we could see a total shift of getting people off petrol which would be better for the environment. I think we are still a ways out but we are heading that way sooner than I expected.

How much lighter are electric SUVs?

I know electric SUV models are a bit smaller than standard ones. They try to make them more compact without sacrificing much on storage and all that. However, I want to know how much lighter they are. I think the engine and the bulk of the innards would make up a good chunk of the weight. The body w...

If I decide to go with this model, yet it will be my first! I have only ever driven an electric car once and it was years ago. I am not sure how they even feel but I know they are better for the environment and have been told they are more cost-efficient so I want to make the change for my next vehi...

How do prices compare between electric and petrol?

I have no idea how this is broken down but I would like to know how the prices compare.

I do a lot of driving and I am under the impression that switching to an electric SUV will save me money over my standard one. Does anyone know the typical price comparisons for the two?

I am not sure. I mean I have never used an electric car to really get a feel for the differences in sound or anything. I would imagine hearing the engine and everything gives a different feel to the overall driving experience.

Are electric cars the real future?

Everyone keeps telling me that they want to do away with the old and have electric cars become the standard within the next 10 years so any cars still on petrol will be removed from the roads of faced with fines. I am not sure how far they will go with that though. I still feel like we are a ways of...
