Nissan this week rolled out a teaser video for the upcoming. It's slated for debut on July 15 and the teaser gives us a few glimpses of the Ariya's production body, which we've only seen as a concept thus far. The video itself is pretty straightforward: There's a car, and it's driving, and you only get to see a little bit at a time. But there's a pretty good shot of most of the front end in winter driving, and I have to say, I like (what admittedly little) I see.
The Ariya is about more than adding another EV to Nissan's portfolio. This slick little number will actually help usher in the next generation of Nissan's design language, which willafter Ariya.
The biggest hint we've seen about the Ariya's production form thus far has come via Instagram leaks. In April, purported patent images surfaced. It stays pretty true to the concept's design, albeit with a bunch of likely changes so that the car can pass crash tests and all that good stuff. In terms of underlying tech, it wouldn't be obscene to assume that it will share some components with the Leaf, in addition to packing the latest iteration of Nissan's ProPilot Assist driver-assistance suite, but we'll know for sure in just a few days.
