The 2022 Nissan Ariya is an all-new all-electric crossover SUV from Nissan. Although a release date has not been finalized as of this writing, it should be available to drivers in and near Garden Grove Costa Mesa Irvine at Nissan of San Juan Capistrano by the fourth quarter of 2021. Perhaps what makes the Ariya so impressive is that it will allow a 300-mile range on a single charge. Compare this to the Nissan Leaf, which allows for a 226-mile range. The Ariya is also loaded with standard amenities and technologies, including advanced driver assists, and Nissan will also offer a wide range of trim levels and options so that you can personalize the Ariya to your particular needs and preferences.
