Don’t have mine yet, but all the reports mention that the charge port is on the front passenger side.

1. The EVSE is in a sealed plastic bag under the divide and hide storage system in the trunk. It is not visible.
2. The car had more than 85% of charge. Most of the dealerships should have a DC fast charging stations and you can request the car to be fully charged for delivery.
3. All the recommended safety settings are activated by default
4.
5. The charge port is on passenger side

Unfortunately not =(
Being that you are the first 10 Ariyas in the nation, are you getting a lot of attention from Tesla
Anyone asked their dealership when dealer-installed options (like a hitch receiver for a bike rack) would become available?
I asked 2 weeks ago and the parts guy said they have absolutely no accessory parts #s shown in their parts system. The brochure shows it as an accessory class I hitch. I think it's 1.25" size hitch. I want 2" hitch for my Yakima Standup bike rack.

I asked the parts guy if he thinks the tow hitch would be interchangeable for Rogue, Murano, and Ariya. He does not know...

The Canada vehicle builder shows a class II hitch available. Then again they show a lot of items you can't see on the US site. I noticed 17" wheels (no image shown) as an option and black 5 spoke wheels too.

I would also like to install a 2” square receiver on my Ariya for a bike rack. However my concern is that the factory trailer hitch assembly photos I have seen suggest that the Ariya factory hitch is not the typical 2” square receiver that most bike racks are designed to attach to.

I believe it's a 1.25" hitch. You can get adapters to go from 1.25" to 2", but they put your bikes further out from the car by the length of the adapter. (They'll bounce more.) My rack supports either 1.25" or 2", so I'm okay either way. I also like to use it for hauling a canoe, putting the front on the roof and the back on a T-bar attached to the hitch, so also want the roof rack accessory so I can mount a crossbar. (I guess there are the "universal" sort that mount to the door frame... Ugh. And hatch-mounted bike racks, too...)

I expect there will be aftermarket options from UHaul or at etrailer eventually, but who knows how long that will take.

17" wheels as an option! I could seriously go for that... More rubber is good.

Spoke to the Dealer yesterday re tow package and was told they had no insight into availability. Apparently they have the sensor issue other vehicles are struggling with. Guess it is a wait & see mode
Thanks Atreis for the post & insight.
