Excited to say we picked up our Ariya Premiere FWD, Long Range today and happy to report a relatively smooth purchase. We received our "rebate credit" of $1240 as promised, and the MSRP with no additional add ons or fees outside of the usual tax, title and plate transfer. We did as we normally do with new vehicles add on the usual service/maintenance packages that make sense for our driving/dirt roads.
We noticed our unofficial MSRP had a couple features that were included as a part of our model that we did not remember having at the time of pre-order. Propilot2.0 was the biggest, but we got to try it out last night and had a blast with it. Other small incidentals like the all weather logo mats, first aid kit/safety kit, etc. I believe that Nissan matched the premiere's up regardless of fwd to awd/eforce. Makes sense to me that they did that and I appreciate it!
When I say this car is smooth - it is! From the textures, to the way it drives, to how it thinks is just seamlessly classy and comfortable. And speaking of comfortable - the front seats are the most comfortable car seats ever. I immediately joked that I wanted to rip my Rouge's seats out and get these, and my sales guy was like lets see if we can lol
A really awesome factoid: We were officially the first delivery for Michigan which is a cool token of awesomeness. The dealership surprised us with a few regional sales/corporate figures there and a bit of an experience which was a classy touch by Nissan.
One minor hiccup comes down to Nissans servers today- we were unable to configure the Nissan Connect services and one other item due to their servers faulting out. Fortunately we’re close to our dealer and will return Monday (for a charge up) and to do the set up and link from our reservation to purchase.
Tax credit: we are not 100% sure if we will qualify as there is a loop hole as widely reported. Yes, this is not great to hear, but nothing was guaranteed. At least I’ll qualify for other rebates for my wall box chargers install through our electrical company.

Congrats! I noticed your front floor mats. Those are very nice floor mats. Were those included for free since you said “no add ons”
Those were included. We had no dealer adding, and we’re told by the sales staff they were prohibited from doing so by Nissan. I find that funny because I know it’s happening in other states, so I wonder if it’s a state by state thing.
we also received the propilot2.0 which was not on the original config, but we tried it out on our Highway drive last night and it was so fun!

Is this a premiere. Propilot2.0 comes only with premiere per my understanding.

Yes - I just updated the write up to include more details - I was a bit tired after all the excitement and fan fare yesterday. It is a premier but at time of reservation ProPilot 2.0 was only on the eforce version of the premiere. This is a FWD long range.

He/She does have Premiere trim. You can see the emblem on the back of his/her trunk.

I may want to upgrade from Evolve+ to Premiere just so that I can have Bose audio system and the outside mirror led light indicators. I don’t care too much about ProPilot 2.0 but will consider using only to and from Vegas. The only drawback is that I don’t like the copper color hubcaps.


Noticed the rubber floor mats with the painted copper color Ariya? Looks cool! Will ask my dealer to throw in these floor mats as a bargaining chip.

the copper hubcaps are not as “copper” bold as I thought.

and yes the mats have the same copper logo to them as well. Here’s a couple interior shots:

ProPilot 2.0 has been on the Premier all along. I'd guess OP missed it in the original description. It's the only functional difference between Evolve+ and Premier, aside from bling.

Hi. Lovely car. A simple question:. Can you dim the two info screens? Can you dim the interior mood lighting? I prefer a fairly dark interior when driving at night. Thanks a bunch.

Drove about four hours this weekend on two lane highway with ProPilot 2 engaged whenever I could. Overall, very happy. The system is very clear about situations it can’t handle, and if you want to do something like quickly switch lanes to pass and gun it for a bit, the system just disengages, and re-engages when it can. I was happy to just lean back and let it cruise. Only complaint is that it seemed to veer left a bit when I was in the right hand lane; it kept inside the lane perfectly, but I just felt a little too close.

The Bose system and mirror LED indicators are only on the Platinum in the US. Canada has other trim configurations.
