The Magnite will come based on the CMF-A+ platform which also underpins the Renault Triber MPV in India. It is going to be the second product to get this architecture. The company has already revealed the concept images of its new SUV and the production version of the new Magnite is expected to retain most of the design elements borrowed from the concept.

The upcoming Magnite SUV sports a crossover inspired stance. Some of the key design highlights include LED headlamps and LED daytime running lights, faux skid plates, bold looking alloys, roof rails, and two-tone exterior treatment. It will also get a tapering roofline towards the rear-end. As suggested by a spy image in the recent past, the Magnite will feature massive claddings around the wheel arches contributing to its muscular appeal.

At the rear, there will be sleek, sculpted tail lights protruding out of the body with reminiscing outlines of the Triber's lights. Also, a wide 'Magnite' lettering will be seen centrally placed on the tailgate.

The Magnite SUV will likely feature the same 1.0-litre Energy petrol engine that's also found on the Renault Triber. This engine has been tuned to deliver 71 bhp of maximum power and 96 Nm of peak torque. The transmission options may include a 5-speed manual as well as an optional AMT unit. Also, the company may launch the turbocharged version of the engine which was displayed at the 2020 Auto Expo.

Nissan introduces the Ariya, a 100% electric crossover

15th July 2020
"All-new EV delivers driving excitement, confidence, comfort and connectivity"

The Nissan Ariya, the company's first all-electric SUV, will be able to drive up to 600 Kilometers on a single charge and features a high-tech interior, with no buttons or knobs, according to the Nissan.

The vehicle was unveiled during an online event Wednesday.

Nissan becomes one of the first major car companies to offer an all-electric car when it introduced the Leaf in 2010.

CEO Makoto Uchida and Chief Operating Officer Ashwani Gupta unveiled the Ariya to a global audience during a live-streamed event at the new Nissan Pavilion in Yokohama.

“The Nissan Ariya is a truly beautiful and remarkable car,” Gupta said. “It enables you to go further, easier, and in comfort. The Ariya is designed to impress, and to express what Nissan strives for – making our customers’ lives better.”

The all-new Nissan Ariya is scheduled to go on sale in Japan in mid-2021. It will be priced at around 5 million yen. The Ariya is planned to go on sale in Europe, North America, and China by the end of 2021.

Nissan unveils its first electric SUV, the Ariya with detailed specs

7th September 2020
"A plug-in version of the Nissan NV van."

The Nissan Ariya, the company's first all-electric SUV, will be able to drive up to 300 miles on a single charge and features a high-tech interior, with almost no buttons or knobs, according to the automaker.

The vehicle was unveiled during an online event Wednesday.

Nissan became one of the first major car companies to offer an all-electric car when it introduced the Leaf in 2010. At the time, Nissan had big plans to make a whole lineup of electric vehicles, which then-CEO Carlos Ghosn predicted would make up 10% of the global car market by 2020.

So far, things haven't turned out the way. Last year, electric vehicles made up just 2.6% of all cars sold globally, according to the International Energy Agency. Besides a new and improved Leaf, the only other electric vehicle Nissan offers widely is the eNV, a plug-in version of the Nissan NV van, which isn't sold in the U.S. Nissan executives have said the company will come out with eight new electric vehicles by 2022.

Ariya-electric-crossover-front-design

The Ariya crossover SUV will become Nissan's second electric vehicle available in the US. It's bigger and roomier than the Leaf, a compact car, and has a design somewhat like Nissan's Murano SUV. The most noticeable difference is the front "grille" design. Electric cars don't require nearly as much incoming air as the gasoline-powered cars, so the front grille is purely a design feature. The Ariya's grille has a large sunken area with a subtle pattern that's supposed to resemble a traditional Japanese Kumiko design. It also has a slightly redesigned Nissan logo that lights up.

Ariya-electric-crossover-interior

Inside, the Ariya has a particularly roomy interior thanks to the lack of an engine under the hood. Things that usually impinge on interior space, like the air conditioning equipment, are located under the hood instead.

In place of buttons and switches, most so-called secondary controls -- for things like climate control and the stereo -- are handled through "capacitive haptic switches,touch-sensitive icons that light up on the dashboard."

Ariya-electric-crossover-built-design

The Ariya's large flat battery pack is mounted under the SUV's floor, which allows the vehicle to have a completely flat floor, an arrangement also found in a number of other electric models including the Tesla Model Y.

The Ariya will be available with Nissan's ProPilot Assist driver assistance technology that allows some hands-free driving on highways in some countries. The hands-free driving technology, which is similar to systems offered by General Motors and, soon, Ford, will be available in the US first on the Ariya, a Nissan spokesman said.

The electric SUV will be available in front- or all-wheel-drive and with a choice of two battery pack sizes. The base model will have a 63-kilowatt-hour battery pack. With the larger 87 kilowatt-hour pack, the Ariya will be able to go about 300 miles on a charge based on US EPA tests, according to Nissan. Nissan did not release a range estimate for the SUV with the smaller battery pack.

The Ariya will be able to go from a stop to 60 miles an hour in about 5 seconds, Nissan chief operating officer Ashwani Gupta said in an online meeting with journalists. That performance is similar to Nissan's 370Z sports car.

The Ariya will go on sale in Japan in the middle of 2021 and the United States later next year. Prices in the US will start at about $40,000. That's a few thousand dollars less than competitors like the Ford Mustang Mach-E or the Tesla Model Y.
