The path to production for the 2023 Nissan Ariya has felt like a long one, but it’s well and truly over, as signaled by the fact there’s official pricing, and you can now reserve one. Nissan is taking a page from the Hummer EV playbook in only offering a select few combinations to begin with, with additional variations going on sale later.
For now, the entry-level model is the front-wheel-drive Venture+. It starts at $47,950, and although it’s the base model, it has the longest range at 300 miles. That comes from the liquid-cooled 87-kWh (usable) battery pack. It has a single electric motor sending 238 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque to the front wheels.

Standard features include LED lighting, 19-inch wheels, manual-adjustable cloth seats, ambient lighting, a 12.3-inch instrument screen, dual-zone
