Nissan Ariya deliveries were scheduled to begin mid-2021 (May-August 2021), with Japan as the first market. However, due to component shortage, the first units will come out “this winter (December 2021-February 2022),” Nissan revealed in the announcement of a limited-edition model on June 4, 2021. Moreover, the company has pushed back customer deliveries of the Ariya in the United States to 2022.

Makoto Uchida, Director, Representative Executive Officer, President, and CEO, Nissan, confirmed during the fiscal year 2020 financial results announcement in May 2021 that the production of the Ariya will begin this year. “As we introduce the Nissan Intelligent Factory in Tochigi this year, we are going to start production of Ariya,” he said. The company has changed the SOP date because of the ongoing semiconductor shortage worldwide.

“We assume an impact of 500,000 units from the semiconductor shortage,” Uchida said later, during the analyst session for discussing the fiscal year 2020 financial results. “The magnitude of impact is large due to the “double negative impact” of supply shortage, new product launch timing, and the fact that we have more models using more semiconductor,” he added.

A spokesperson of Nissan for the U.S. market told Green Car Reports that reservations for the Ariya in the country will begin later this year, and the start of sales is from next year.

Will this change or affect sales within the UK? I didn't even know this vehicle was available over there. I have a few family members that moved to the US 10+ years ago and they never heard of it. At least not the ones I mentioned it to. Not that they are big car people to begin with.
