Nissan Ariya electric crossover is being tuned for each global market

The Nissan Ariya is expected to start deliveries later this year, but in the meantime Nissan has released a short video highlighting chassis tuning for the 300-mile electric crossover.

It features Ariya prototypes being tested at the automaker’s Hokkaido proving ground in Japan.

While the United States market isn’t mentioned in this Europe-centric video, Nissan emphasized that it will tune the Ariya for each global market. The Hokkaido proving ground has test areas that represent road conditions in different parts of the world, and vehicles are also tested locally to determine suitability for different markets, the automaker noted.

This latest PR blast follows Nissan’s recent practice teasing the Ariya more through its European channels. Nissan has shown the Ariya in the U.S. and remains committed to the release in 2021, but U.S. feature and pricing details are all forthcoming.

The Ariya will have a dual-motor system that benefits more than just performance and traction, aiming to help the body stay flatter in sharp transitions.
