The Nissan ARIYA has received further industry recognition to add to the accolades already received since its UK launch.

The stunning all-electric crossover has been declared as Highly Commended in the 2024 Business Motoring Awards, achieving success in the category ‘Best Large EV, £45,001+’.

The honour is the latest to be bestowed upon ARIYA, which has amassed a number of awards in recent months from organisations such as the Caravan and Motorhome Club; Company Car & Van; and The Car Expert. ARIYA is also a former Auto Express Car of the Year.

Comfort and styling

A stylish, fully electrified crossover, ARIYA offers the practicality of a versatile SUV and the space, comfort and styling of a premium city car. With expansive space for the whole family, and an impressive range to take you where you need to go, the car is incredibly functional, but it’s more than just a safe choice.

Benefiting from premium styling, epitomised by its sleek shape, luxurious, lounge-like interior and generous trim levels, ARIYA represents the future of electric motoring as Nissan continues to be a true pioneer in the EV arena.

James Bird, EV Product Manager at Nissan GB, said: ‘‘We’re extremely proud of ARIYA. Naturally, we think it’s a fantastic car and we’re delighted that it continues to receive recognition.”

Staying true to Nissan’s heritage of fun-to-drive, exciting vehicles, ARIYA is built on the Alliance-developed CMF-EV platform that’s optimised to deliver unparalleled performance. Thanks to its 100% electric powertrain, ARIYA offers instant torque and powerful acceleration to deliver a smooth, quiet and responsive driving experience.

The CMF-EV platform is a key component of Nissan’s electrification strategy. Its versatile architecture affords extensive design creativity and transforms cockpits into lounge-like spaces, while accommodating multiple powertrain options. The platform will also underpin future UK-built Nissan electric models.

Driver-friendly experience

Chris Wright, Managing Editor of Business Motoring, said: ‘‘The inclusion of the latest advanced technologies on the ARIYA, along with its impressive range, provides a driver-friendly experience centred on the user rather than the machine.”
