In a bold move towards electrification, Nissan has unveiled its latest addition to the Nismo lineup – the Nissan Ariya Nismo. Breaking away from the tradition of internal combustion engines, the Ariya Nismo represents the future of performance with its electric powertrain. Debuting at the 2024 Tokyo Auto Salon, this electric SUV not only boasts a sportier appearance but also packs a punch with a significant power upgrade. With 430 horsepower under the hood and a distinctive artificial engine sound derived from Formula E, the Ariya Nismo is making waves, albeit primarily in the Japanese market.

The Power Duo

The Power Duo

Nissan is set to offer the Ariya Nismo in two variants in Japan, both powered by a dual-electric motor setup drawing energy from a substantial battery pack. The base model already impresses with a combined output of 362 horsepower and 560 Nm of torque, but for those craving more, the beefier variant steps up the game with a remarkable 430 hp and 600 Nm. Accompanying this power upgrade is a larger battery capacity of 91.0 kilowatt-hours, ensuring a robust performance.

While the Ariya Nismo may not be a featherweight, tipping the scales at 2000 kg to 2219 kg depending on the configuration, its performance is expected to be nothing short of exhilarating. Although Nissan has not officially disclosed acceleration figures, the 430-hp variant is anticipated to outpace its predecessor, which achieved a 0-100 kmh sprint in 4.8 seconds with 389 hp and 600 Nm.

Nissan has equipped the JDM-spec Ariya Nismo with a set of "highly rigid" 20-inch wheels wrapped in custom 255/45 R20 tires. This upgrade aims to enhance handling and boost stability at higher speeds, especially during cornering maneuvers. The introduction of a dedicated Nismo driving mode promises a more responsive throttle, and enthusiasts can further elevate the driving experience by opting for an artificial soundtrack inspired by the intense sounds of Formula E racing.

Interior Tweaks

Inside the Ariya Nismo, subtle yet distinctive changes await, aligning with the Nismo performance identity. Chunkier front seats provide added support during spirited drives, complemented by red accents and Nismo branding that underscore the vehicle's sporting credentials.

As of now, Nissan has exclusively positioned the Ariya Nismo in the Japanese market. In response to inquiries about its availability in other regions, Nissan stated, "We have no further announcements at this stage regarding introduction of this car to other markets." While the Ariya Nismo is set to hit the Japanese market in spring, enthusiasts outside Japan eagerly await news of a potential global release.

The Nissan Ariya Nismo represents a significant leap forward in the evolution of electric performance vehicles. With its powerful electric drivetrain, sporty enhancements, and a touch of artificial engine symphony, it stands as a testament to Nissan's commitment to electrification. As the automotive industry continues its electrifying journey, the Ariya Nismo signals that the future of high-performance vehicles is not just about raw power but also about embracing the efficiency and innovation of electric propulsion.
