2022 Nissan Aariya vs Tesla Model Y

2022 Nissan Aariya vs Tesla Model Y

Nissan's resurgence as a brand to beat includes its introduction of new electric vehicles (EVs). Drivers looking for an all-electric vehicle (EV) immediately think of Tesla because of the hype around the brand and the range estimates for its vehicles, but Nissan has been in the EV game since 2010, giving it plenty of experience.

 

2022 Nissan Ariya

 

 

The 2022 Nissan Ariya is the most recent addition to the manufacturer's model lineup. This all-electric crossover features a bold new design, competitive price tag, reliability, and luxury that more than adequately stacks up against the Tesla Model Y.

 

Exterior Design

 

 

The 2022 Nissan Ariya easily wins in the looks department. While the Tesla Model Y looks like a sedan on stilts and does nothing to stand out from the crowd, the Ariya shows the futuristic design direction of the Nissan brand. The new electric platform reduced the constraints on designers and allowed them free reign to make the Ariya more eye-catching than other models.

 

Interior Luxury

 

 

Just like the exterior, Nissan designers went fun and futuristic. The climate control system was moved to the engine compartment and a nearly flat floor give more legroom to occupants. Two large 12.3-inch displays provide all necessary information to the driver.

 

On the other hand, the Tesla Model Y copies from the smaller Model 3 with its minimalist interior that features a single touchscreen to control all car functions. The clean design is simple, but it is not as appealing to look at as the Ariya's interior.

 

Affordability

 

Pricing for the Nissan Ariya has not yet been released, but drivers in Canada can expect a price tag around $50,000. It will also qualify for federal and provincial EV tax credits, saving buyers another $5,000 to $7,000.

 

The Tesla Model Y, on the other hand, does not qualify for any tax incentives, plus its base Long Range model costs $74,990, putting it out of reach of many buyers.

 

Maintenance

 

 

Nissan has improved its reliability over the past several years, making it one of the most dependable car brands that consumers can buy. And when the Ariya does need maintenance, the cost comes in below average for repairs.

 

On the other hand, Tesla offers pretty abysmal reliability, and it is not cheap to repair. Consumer Reports ranked Tesla second to last on its list of reliable car brands.

 

Performance

 

 

Drivers of the 2022 Nissan Ariya have the choice between a front-wheel drive (FWD) model or a model featuring Nissan's new e-4ORCE all-wheel drive (AWD) system, and Nissan has confirmed that the Ariya's range will top out around 482 km on a full charge.

 

Tesla does have Nissan beat in terms of range, but not by much and only on the Long-Range model. The Model Y gets 508 km on a full charge, but it does cost almost $30,000 more than the Ariya.

There are many advantages to purchasing a 2022 Nissan Ariya, including a lower price, better reliability, longer dependability, and the prevalence of service centres and certified technicians should repairs be necessary.
