The New Nissan ARIYA Wins ‘Best Large Electric Car’ in Carbuyer Best Car Awards 2023​

The New Nissan ARIYA continues to thrive and today has been awarded ‘Best Large Electric Car’ by Carbuyer in their Best Car Awards 2023.

Richard Ingram, Editor of Carbuyer commented: "Nissan set the EV benchmark when it launched the Leaf back in 2011, and it does the same in the large electric car segment a decade on.

“The Ariya feels futuristic, with a good range, spacious cabin and loads of clever tricks and features. It’s a brilliant all-rounder if you’re looking for a big car and want to make the switch."

The ARIYA represents Nissan's most thrilling advancement in its electrification process. The much awaited all-electric crossover, which debuted this year, provides a classy and comfortable driving experience. Nissan has combined its expertise in electric vehicles and crossovers to produce a vehicle that reimagines electric motoring and provides customers with an upgraded, lifestyle-focused electric drive.

Andrew Humberstone, Managing Director, Nissan Motor (GB) added: “I am delighted to see that the rest of the industry is as excited about ARIYA as we are. This ground-breaking new model has joined an incredibly competitive segment yet stands out for all the right reasons. ARIYA is smooth and comfortable to drive, whilst also being stylish, modern and intuitive. It is the perfect option for customers looking for a premium electric vehicle”.​

The car features several striking design elements that honour Nissan's Japanese heritage. Aerodynamic efficiency is smartly increased by the exterior's clean lines, while the interior's kumiko-style pattern and clever permutations give it a lounge-like feel.

Nissan's commitment to safety is still emphasised by ARIYA. The most recent driver-assistance technologies are installed in it, including ProPILOT with Navi link, Nissan Safety Shield 360, Intelligent Around View Monitor, Intelligent Forward Collision Warning, Emergency Lane Keeping, Intelligent Emergency Braking, and Rear Automatic Emergency Braking.
