    The Nissan Ariya is likely to see a bunch of reviews before too long, so this thread is to collect those and discuss.

    This first one, from Jonny Smith of The Late Brake Show, doesn't feature the driving element but does go over the entire vehicle and talks about its various drivetrain configuration, etc. He also makes some comparisons with competitors like the VW ID.4, the Ford Mustang Mach-E, and the Tesla Model Y.

    Bjorn Nyland, just put out a video of the Nissan Ariya. It's not a driving review but still worth some of your time. Most interesting for me is that the car is at a dealership in Norway and the general public are being allowed to have a good close up look and explanation of features.

    I haven't watched the whole thing yet -- maybe 5 minutes or so -- but already he's pointed out a couple things I wasn't aware of, like pop-out headlight washers, and the illuminated charge port with the interior port covers on hinges (instead of dangling on a cord). Check it out!

     
  4. Nice features include the double glove boxes, adjustable center console and the HUD (it looks like it might be on the windshield itself - hard to tell).
    The flat rear floor is also a bonus.
    The video also shows the buttons for the power tailgate, one on the gate itself and one on the control switches left lower beside steering wheel.
    The dimple pattern on the front kind of resemble the Kona Electric style. I also notice the type 2 charge port has pins populated only for single phase indicating 3 phase OBC not available (at least on this model).
    Look forward to more video reviews on a full production model:)

    This guy is pretty popular. He managed to find an Ariya at the company's Chattanooga. Tennessee facility and they let him shoot video with it, even though as you'll see, it wasn't an especially good environment for shooting this kind of footage.
