2024 Nissan Ariya: Selecting Your Ideal Variant

The latest offering from the Japanese automaker, the 2024 Nissan Ariya, represents a bold step forward in the world of electric vehicles (EVs). With its sleek design, cutting-edge technology, and impressive performance, the Ariya is poised to redefine what it means to drive electric.

In this comprehensive guide, we’ll look into the various trims and configurations of the 2024 Nissan Ariya to help you determine which model best suits your needs and preferences.

2024 Nissan Ariya: Selecting Your Ideal Variant

The Nissan Leaf may have been an early starting point for adopters, but Nissan has evolved, and the face of that evolution on the EV side is undoubtedly the Arya. This crossover initially launched with a few trims and one battery choice but has since grown into a more complete lineup. The base level Arya is called the engage.

It utilizes a 63 KW battery pack and can be equipped with either a single motor front-wheel drive setup or a dual motor all-wheel drive layout, with the all-wheel-drive versions dubbed e Force models.


The front-wheel drive single motor engage delivers 214 horsepower and 221 lb feet of torque, while the engaged eforce dual motor provides 335 horsepower and 413 lb feet of torque.

Equipped with 19-inch aluminum alloy wheels, an LED signature lighting element upfront, leather seat trim, heated front seats, and steering wheel, the base and gauge model offer a decent level of equipment.

It also features a six-speaker audio system, a 12.3-inch center display, and Wireless Apple Carplay and Android Auto connectivity.

However, the main issue with the engage model lies in its range, rated at just 216 miles for the front-wheel-drive model and 205 miles for the all-wheel-drive model.

Nevertheless, there’s an engage Plus eforce version available, boasting a larger 87 KW battery pack, producing 389 horsepower, 442 lb feet of torque, and providing a much-improved range of 272 miles.

The base price of the engage is $4,980, while the engage eforce starts at $44,988, and the engage plus eforce starts at $46,500.

Moving on to the Nissan Arya Venture Plus trim, which sounds like a credit offer from Capital 1, every single motor front-wheel drive ARA above the engage produces 238 horsepower and 221 lb feet of torque, while every eforce model above churns out 389 horsepower and 442 lb feet of torque.

All models above the engage also come with the 87 KW battery pack. The Venture plus trim offers only a front-wheel drive version, oddly losing features like the heated steering wheel seats and switching to cloth trim. Despite this, you still get good screens and device connectivity.

The real advantage over the engage models lies in the larger battery pack and more power, as well as the improved driving range, rated at 304 miles. The Arya Venture plus starts at $2,580.

Continuing with the Arya evolve plus, which offers all the aforementioned features and more, though the range slightly decreases to 289 miles.

The Evolve plus comes with additional features like a panoramic moonroof, a 360° camera, wireless phone charging, a heated steering wheel, a powered rear liftgate, and rain-sensing wipers. It also reinstates the heated and power-adjustable front seats and adds a heated second row of seats.

The ARA evolve plus starts at $4,5180, while the Evolve plus eforce starts at $49,500 with a driving range of 272 miles.

The topspec front-wheel-drive ARA is the Empower plus, which essentially mirrors the Evolve plus but upgrades to propilot assist 2.0 for hands-free driving on the highway, propilot park system, and multicolor ambient lighting for the cabin.

The starting price of the Arya and power plus is $49,800. Finally, we have the range-topping Arya Platinum Plus eforce, exclusively equipped with the dual motor all-wheel-drive setup, delivering 389 horsepower and 442 lb feet of torque.

Offering either 19-inch or 20-inch wheels, its range is 267 miles with the former and 257 miles with the latter. As the top-tier option, it comes with an upgraded Bose sound system, Nappa leather seating, a hands-free power liftgate, memory position seats, and cooled front seats. The starting price of a Nissan Arya Platinum Plus is $55,500, regardless of the chosen wheel size.

So, which one should you buy? If range is your primary concern, then the Venture plus would be the ideal choice. Otherwise, the Evolve plus strikes the best balance between range and standard features while remaining under the $50,000 mark. With all-wheel drive and ample power, the Evolve plus eforce is likely the top option in the lineup.
