The recently released Nissan Ariya underwent comprehensive safety testing by Euro NCAP.
The Nissan Ariya receives top marks from reviewers, indicating that it is a high-quality vehicle that can be recommended. This is good news for other EVs in the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance, which are based on the same CMF-EV platform.
The Ariya (63 kWh battery version) achieved 86% and 89% for Adult Occupant Protection and Child Occupant Protection respectively. These aren't the highest in the industry, but they're still very good numbers. For comparison, the Tesla Model Y scored 97% and 87%, while the Kia EV6 got 90% and 86%.
74% of Vulnerable Road Users are protected by our product--the highest level noted in the Safety Assist category at 93%. This is a pretty high success rate, especially when compared to other products on the market.
Recently, the Ariya was not the only Nissan to receive a top safety rating in Europe. The non-rechargeable, series-hybrid Nissan X-Trail with e-Power technology received the same honor (this model is especially popular in Japan).
Although the two models originate from different platforms, they both have achieved 5-star Euro NCAP results, which demonstrates a commitment to making cars as safe as possible regardless of their electrification level.
