An electric future


Electric cars have made significant strides in range, boosting the transition to greener transportation by making EVs practical for everyday use – no more worries about running out of juice! Nissan’s first all-electric crossover SUV, the ARIYA, also builds on Nissan’s strength as an EV pioneer and innovator.


ARIYA awarded…again!


If you’re looking to buy a Nissan ARIYA, you’ll be eager to read about real-life drivers and what they think. Now in its eighth year, the Auto Trader New Car Awards stands out from other automotive accolades as winners are chosen by car owners rather than industry experts. After all, you’re the ones whose opinions matter the most!

Over 200,000 UK car owners participated in an online survey, sharing their real-world experiences and opinions to determine the winners, with the ARIYA surging past competitors like the Volvo XC60 and BMW iX3.

Erin Baker, Auto Trader’s Editorial Director, commented: “With its long range, comfort and sleek looks, it’s no wonder the Nissan ARIYA is the car of choice for those travelling long distances. Owners love how cost-efficient it is to run, and its features and technology make driving long distances a breeze.


‘‘One owner said: ‘It’s a comfortable long-distance cruiser. Excellent performance and cheap to run. Very environmentally friendly. Can’t fault it.’ Who are we to argue?’’


The ARIYA is also a former Auto Express Car of the Year and has more recently garnered praise from organisations such as the Caravan and Motorhome Club, Company Car & Van and The Car Expert.

Drivers’ choice


In the Auto Trader survey, drivers who have bought and driven electric evaluated their vehicles based on various lifestyle factors across 16 different categories. Participants also rated overall satisfaction and likelihood to recommend their vehicle to others.

Fiona Mackay, Nissan GB Marketing Director, commented on the award: ‘‘Naturally, we’re delighted that ARIYA has been named ‘Best Car For Long Distances’ at this year’s Auto Trader New Car Awards. It’s particularly pleasing because this accolade is based on the real-world opinions of ARIYA owners from across the UK. It will help dispel any remaining myths that electric vehicles are suitable for short journeys only.”
