The Nissan Ariya Concept will be a mid-size sport utility vehicle with intelligent driving technologies. Inspired by autonomous cars, this all-new model will be powered by electricity. Curious individuals from the auto industry and consumers got a preview of this futuristic SUV at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show.

The Nissan Ariya Concept Car is For the Future

This efficient Nissan SUV will be equipped with a front electric motor that replaces a traditional engine block. Another rear motor will provide supplemental power on demand. The dual-motor powertrain makes a great pair with other innovative mechanical technologies, such as the Intelligent All-Wheel Drive (AWD) system, with all-weather capabilities. The signature eTorque technology will also be borrowed from other existing Nissan models, such as the sporty GT-R.

This advanced function manages the torque from the electric powertrain to all four wheels. Unlike most electric vehicles that currently invade the global market, the Ariya Concept is engineered for long-distance trips. The driving range will be significantly more than just 30 or 40 miles on a single charge. Speaking of charging, this intelligent SUV is easy to recharge at home or other stations across the nation. Nissan will provide a convenient mobile app that locates charging points in specific regions.

The NissanConnect platform makes an enormous evolution in the Ariya Concept. First of all, this next-generation multimedia console comes with a 12.3-inch wide monitor, which seems like the only piece of hardware in the uncluttered cabin. One hard knob with haptic-like controls is integrated into the infotainment system. Another small electronic button allows the driver to start the electric propulsion system. By downloading the appropriate app from the NissanConnect suite, users will be able to check and start the Ariya Concept's powertrain remotely.

ProPILOT 2.0 is another all-new technology that will be integrated into this intelligent Nissan model. You'll get several familiar accident-prevention functions that are already available on the market, such as automatic braking and alert systems for blind spots. A self-driving option is available in the ProPILOT 2.0 package.

This innovative feature is inspired by autonomous cars that are gradually entering the global auto markets. The hands-free driving function is optimized for single-lane handling. Therefore, the driver should still keep a close eye on the road after taking the hands off the steering wheel.
