Performance that’s extremely dynamic yet smooth and easy to control is produced by the motor’s approximately 10% greater peak output combined with special acceleration tuning and an exclusive NISMO driving mode that maximizes response. The sound produced is evocative of Formula E racing.

NISMO’s special tuning for each chassis component combined with e-4ORCE electric-drive four-wheel-control technology and dedicated tires mounted on highly rigid 20-inch aluminum wheels generates superior stability and turn-in ability as well as better line-tracing and enhanced cornering ability at high speeds.

The exterior blends the Ariya’s premium quality with NISMO’s dynamism. Aerodynamic performance is improved thanks to race-derived technologies that reduce drag and provide greater downforce at higher speeds.
