Nissan validates Ariya durability with extreme testing

Subjected to durability tests that mimic diverse and severe real-world conditions from rough roads to floodwater

PARIS, France – To deliver customer satisfaction and peace of mind in every setting, Nissan has put the Ariya through relentless durability tests over three years.

Gauging the all-electric coupé-crossover’s performance across 5,000 parameters, each test was designed to ensure the Ariya left the testing ground fully capable of handling diverse global conditions.

Leveraging over a decade of EV know-how and customer data since launching the LEAF, Nissan’s experts assessed vehicle usage in various markets to provide valuable direction for Ariya’s testing. Using this to recreate harsh terrains and difficult conditions, the car’s durability was put through its paces in various real-world situations, allowing for a thorough evaluation.

Administered by a team of over 500 experts at Nissan’s Tochigi test course in Japan, these tests also considered both daytime and post-nightfall conditions that drivers could face. The rigorous and lengthy durability testing ensures that Nissan can offer drivers and passengers an exciting EV experience with zero compromises on performance.
