Nissan Ariya: range measured at 100 and 130 km/h

525 kilometers is the official range of the Nissan Ariya with 87 kWh. But what is the real range? So how far can you get at 100 km/h (or 130 km/h) on the highway? We test that!

Our range test is a snapshot. Electric cars that we test in the spring or summer are lucky and take advantage of the nice weather. When it is about 20 degrees outside, dry and windless, an EV will go the furthest on a battery charge of current.

The Nissan Ariya that we test starts lagging behind, because it is on winter tires and the weather forecast is autumnal. At the same time, a slightly higher power consumption is not a nuisance if there is such a huge battery pack of 87 kWh in the floor. Its competitors have about 77 kWh.

We drive our regular round of 100 kilometers. The route starts and ends at the same point, so that headwind and tailwind alternate. The photos show the average power consumption.

Nissan Ariya: actieradius bij 100 km/h

At 100 km/h, the Nissan Ariya has an average power consumption of 20.2 kWh/100 km. That is quite a lot when you consider that the Skoda Enyaq Coupé iV (range test) is satisfied with 16.2 kWh/100 km. Even though the Ariya is on winter tires and it is 11 degrees outside instead of 16 degrees (Skoda).

Would you drive a full battery of 87 kWh completely empty, you come 430 kilometer far. Enough to cross the whole of the Netherlands. To achieve the ‘promised’ 525-kilometer range, your average power consumption must be 16.5 kWh/100 km. Maybe in the summer and on summer tires…

Nissan Ariya: actieradius bij 130 km/h

Wind. Rain. bleak. We could have sat by the woodstove tonight with Auto Review 12. But electric cars are not just made for nice weather. The advantage of such a massive SUV is the rock-solid handling. Even when it storms.

Power consumption shoots up to 28.6 kWh/100 km. That’s high, absolutely. But for a worst-case scenario in terms of wind and rain, I would have expected worse. The aforementioned Enyaq Coupé from Skoda already ‘eats’ 25.7 kWh/100 km in good weather at a constant speed of 130 km/h. That the Nissan Ariya with 87 kWh on an autumn evening in November has a 130 km / h range of 304 kilometer we don’t think it’s wrong.

Of course you hope that an electric car will also perform economically if the weather conditions do not cooperate. The Nissan Ariya puts you face to face with the facts. If you drive on the highway at 100 km/h in the fall, it will cost you about 20 kWh/100 km. But thanks to the large battery pack of 87 kWh, you can still travel 430 kilometers.

If you drive through parts of the Netherlands at night where you are allowed 130 km/h, the battery will be empty after 304 kilometers. Useful information if you plan to drive often on the German autobahn.
