The 2023 Nissan Ariya all-electric SUV with the extended-range battery will be priced from $47,125 before any applicable federal, state or local tax credits. That will get you a single-motor, front-wheel-drive Ariya Venture Plus with a Nissan-estimated 300 miles of range. Three more expensive trims are also available (as high as $60,000), including the FWD Premiere that can only be ordered via Nissan’s reservation process. Details and full pricing on Ariyas with the standard-range battery have not yet been revealed.

Ariya Pricing and Availability
The 2023 Ariya’s base price is close to (but higher than) other mainstream electric SUVs like the Ford Mustang Mach-E ($43,995) and Volkswagen ID.4 ($41,190), though with more standard estimated range. The loaded dual-motor Platinum Plus’ price puts it in Tesla Model Y territory ($60,190).
While reservations are open now, Nissan says Ariya deliveries will start in the fall of 2022, beginning with FWD models. Deliveries of AWD-equipped Ariyas will begin in late fall of 2022. All prices below include a $1,175 destination fee but do not include applicable federal, state or local tax credits — and yes, despite selling the Leaf for more than a decade, Nissan EVs are still eligible for the full federal EV tax credit as of this writing.
- Ariya Venture Plus (FWD): $47,125
- Ariya Evolve Plus (FWD): $50,125
- Ariya Premiere (FWD): $54,625
- Ariya Platinum Plus (AWD): $60,125
Power and Range
Three of the four Ariya trims will be FWD with a single electric motor. According to Nissan, that motor will produce 238 horsepower and 221 pounds-feet of torque. While the base Venture Plus will have an estimated 300 miles of range, the uplevel Evolve Plus and Premiere will each have an estimated 285 miles of range from the same powertrain.
Buyers looking for the most expensive and most powerful Ariya can purchase the dual-motor Platinum Plus with Nissan’s e-4orce AWD system. The two motors combine for 389 hp and 442 pounds-feet, though estimated range drops to 265 miles. Regardless of trim level, the four Ariya trims will use the same-capacity battery, an 87-kilowatt-hour battery pack.

Interested buyers can go to Nissan’s website to build and reserve an Ariya by placing a $500 refundable deposit. The Ariya will be built and shipped to an “EV-certified” Nissan dealer, and the buyer will have the option to complete the purchase either at the dealership or online via Nissan’s online purchasing process. Once the purchase is complete, the buyer can pick up their Ariya at the dealership or have it delivered to their home.
To encourage buyers to reserve an Ariya now, Nissan is making one trim level, the FWD Premiere, available exclusively via reservation. It includes 19-inch wheels with uniquely colored aero covers, Premiere badging and illuminated Premiere kick plates.
