Nissan Leaf, the pioneering electric vehicle in Taiwan, has recently undergone changes on the official website of Yulon Nissan. The light-travel version of the Leaf series has disappeared, leaving only the long-range enhanced version. However, Taiwan is getting ready to welcome the introduction of the new generation electric SUV, Ariya, which is expected to be launched next year.
Currently, Yulon Nissan only offers the model with a 62 kWh battery capacity, discontinuing the 40 kWh battery version. This strategic decision is mainly driven by market considerations since larger battery capacities result in better range and increased practicality. Additionally, with the growing competition in the electric vehicle market, the Leaf has faced a decline in its competitive edge.
However, consumers in Taiwan can look forward to the arrival of the Ariya electric SUV. The Ariya features a new generation design language, with a minimalist interior showcasing a large connected display, enhancing the overall technological ambiance. The vehicle’s size is comparable to the Volkswagen ID.4, which is also preparing to enter the Taiwanese market, but slightly smaller than the Tesla Model Y.
According to international data, the Ariya will be available in various models, including single-motor front-wheel drive and dual-motor e-4ORCE all-wheel drive. It will be offered with two different battery capacities: B6 (66 kWh) and B9 (91 kWh). The maximum output power can reach up to 389 horsepower and 61.2 kgm of torque, with a maximum range of approximately 610 kilometers.
With the introduction of the Ariya, Nissan aims to broaden its electric vehicle offerings in Taiwan, catering to the evolving demands of consumers in the rapidly growing electric vehicle market.
