This week we discuss the all-new 2023 Nissan Ariya, the second electric vehicle to join the automaker's EV roster behind the Leaf. We discuss the extensive Ariya model lineup, how it stacks up against other electric car competitors like the Hyundai Ioniq 5, Kia EV6, Volkswagen ID.4, and Subaru Solterra. We also debate how future-proof the new Nissan may be, and answer an audience question about backup camera design.

This vehicle is huge for Nissan. I really want to see the Infiniti version..🤔
My 2019 Leaf has one pedal driving so I’m confused as to why they regressed.
From the dedicated seat heater button, climate control knobs, to the hidden reverse camera, this episode just made me appreciate my VW Sportwagen a lot more 😀
I’ve always wanted a good and reliable electric car but they’re too expensive and too gimmicky. 😭
Being underwhelmed by the Ariya shows how the EV market has matured. Yet another competent EV SUV.
