If you’ve been following global and local car news, it’s no secret that Nissan is expanding its electric car lineup. Locally, the car brand recently introduced the fully electric LEAF. In its home country of Japan however, the marque has now started taking pre-orders of the Nissan Ariya and its limited-edition variants.

For those unaware, the Nissan Ariya is a fully electric crossover powered by two lithium-ion batteries. The limited-edition Ariya B6 variant specifically uses larger batteries to power an electric motor, which in turn sends power to its front wheels. The higher-spec Ariya B6 e-4ORCE, on the other hand, uses an all-wheel drivetrain that ensures a more balanced power delivery. 

Of note, the standard Ariya boasts an output of 217 horsepower to 394 horsepower depending on the variant. The most powerful limited-edition Ariya (Ariya B9 4ORCE AWD) is certainly more powerful with its impressive output of 389 horsepower and 600 Nm of torque. 

In terms of range, the higher-spec variants of the regular model also have a range of 498 kilometers, but the limited-edition Ariya will have 450 km to 610 km depending on the variant. If that doesn’t blow your “range anxiety” out of the water, then we don’t know what will.

Looks-wise, the limited-edition variants also up the Ariya’s already eye-catching design with the addition of 19-inch bronze alloy wheels with black accents, and its exclusive color options.  

Inside, the limited-edition Ariya EV features a spacious interior, whose surfaces are mostly clad in soft Nappa leather. In addition, these variants are also equipped with a ten-piece Bose Premium Sound System, different-looking kick plates for the doors, as well as a set of plusher floor mats.

The pricing for the Nissan Ariya variants starts at 5 million yen, or around Php 2.180 million. Do note however that Japan has very extensive subsidies for electric vehicles. That’s on top of the tax incentives for these kinds of cars. And lastly, the pre-orders of the Ariya limited edition variants can be done online via the brand’s Shop@Home platform.
