Re: Nissan Ariya to be announced for the JDM July 15, 2020

Oops, wrong language. Sometimes it's more fun to guess at the words, like the ones used for capacity, seconds, 0-100kph times, etc. Let's see if that direct link will work...nope, no dice. Sometimes it does, sometimes not.

Nissan Norway is now offering test drives for potential buyers. They have one or two cars that tours the different dealerships in the country. This is prototype-cars Nissan says, so they can differ from the production car.

Quite a few Ariya road test videos showing up lately on YouTube. This one, from Jack @ Fully Charged, is quite favorable:

Haven't had time to watch, but I'm guessing that either a reviewer's EVent happened recently and/or a media embargo has been lifted.

Often in the industry (e.g. auto, electronics, etc.) reviewers get early access and can write all they want but are not allowed to release any info to public until a media embargo date has passed. This sort of thing has been going for at least a decade.

It seems that Nissan invited automotive journalists to a test circuit somewhere in England, to drive a prototype Ariya.

Nissan will supposedly ask its dealer network to take a profit hit on the Ariya in order to help pay for R&D.

^^ This article says that USA will get 6,000 copies in 2022.

That is quite a lot if each EV spawns say, 15 youtube videos.
