Ariya e4orce AWD's in Canada

1895 Views 38 Replies 12 Participants Last post by  Hank
Just wondering if anyone here has taken delivery of an Ariya e4orce AWD yet? If so, what province are you from.
I placed my order last month with the dealership and was told, Nissan won't start building them until this June sometime. That seems incorrect to me since other countries are already receiving them.

Chuckle 馃き. Yes, amazing how personal color preference is! The NL gets many positive reviews. I'm sure you'll love it But all much better than choice of black or white! Boring!!! Here's to happy deliveries!
Thanks. It was the light interior that was more important to us...open and airy. I'm sure the NL won't be as dark in person. I'm hoping I see more green hues than purple or black.
Talked to the dealer. The Evolve e-force's are on the truck coming to dealer. We ordered the Platinum+ which they said is the next model to come in followed by the Premiere. Looking to next month for our Northern Lights Platinum+. We were one of the first pre-orders in for the P+. Won't be long now. We're on Vancouver Island.
That鈥檚 exciting news. I too am on Vancouver Island. My salesman told me there was one NL Green ahead of ours. I want to see the NL in real life. Dealer has taken our deposit but is waiting for Nissan Canada to open up 鈥淥rders鈥 again.

Yes, it is exciting news. We've been working on this since May 2021, almost 2 years.

Hopefully they'll be a tad quicker with your order once placed. 馃
Now a proud owner of an e-4orce. Took delivery yesterday. The first in Quebec I've been told (not sure if this is true).
Initial experience is positive, being my first EV I can't really compare.
The power and quietness! I also own a Porsche but this is so different with the instant torque.
Not sure about the different screens/menus. They could have done better with this. I'll get use to it I assume. Once everything is setup, I guess I won't have to deal with this anymore.

On top of the paper I had to sign prohibiting me to export the car in the US, I also had to sign another one giving Nissan Canada the rights to use anything I write, photos, videos posted on social media, forums, etc. So I'll be careful with what I post here ;)

Hi. Out here in BC awaiting e-4orce premiere 馃榾. The export ban is very interesting. I've never heard of such a thing from any manufacturer. Does your vehicle have pro pilot 2.0 with autonomous driving? I was told by Nissan that Canada vehicles would not.... explaining in part the substantially lower price versus US models....and why they don't want an export rush of sorts. Also...does your vehicle have the blue suede interior?! Your thoughts on that? Colour and trim you purchased? Hope you love your Ariya! Thanks 馃憤

No ProPilot 2.0
Car is an Evolve, Gun Metallic, Charcoal interior. No blue suede shoes.
Suspension is a bit harsh with our terrible roads. Dealer set the tires at 43psi, I'll lower them to 38psi and see how it improves.

You might prefer the gauge display with the large centered MPH number, that one looks nice, there are 3 ways the speedo and power meter can be displayed. Yes almost too many, but at least there are choices.

Having to sign something to Nissan Canada about rights is interesting. I won a trade show gift bag once, but declined since it would mean signing over in perpetuity my info, which makes no sense for something less than $100 value.

At slow speed the body movement is high, but I think not too hard, it's better at faster speed in the highway.

Luv those blue suede shoes.....or perhaps not, once I see them in real life!

Congrats on your new Evolve. Have you had a chance to lower the psi yet? I'm really interested in how that changes the ride stiffness.
One of our main criteria is a comfy ride.
Thanks for the reply Tom. I think you are referring to this JP to NA Nissan vessel schedule.
I did some research earlier and it appeared to be matching what you mentioned above.

5/22, (5/29) and 6/8 seem to be the next few scheduled delivery....And sadly I haven't received any call from my sales to tell me that Nissan is making/shipping my car.
I guess I will just have to wait for at least 2 more months...
I see the shipping status page has been updated with Pegasus Ace coming in 5/26 and the Genuine Ace 5/30 to Vancouver. Another couple of ships coming in mid June. Hope at least one of those is carrying a lot of e-force Ariyas destined for Canada :)

I know of one person whose Ariya showed up without any shipping notice from Nissan so I'm crossing my fingers.

The Pegasus is currently enroute to LA.

Not yet, but will do this weekend and report back.
But I really enjoy the car. It's so comfortable and fun to drive.

Great to hear you are enjoying it!
I look forward to any further ride reports.

It looks like there are 2 ports that ships are leaving from. Is the Ariya created in both or only one? Yokahama and Kobe

I was wondering that myself. It would make sense that the ships out of Yokahama would carry the Ariya since that port is closer to the plant. Then I thought, will maybe the ships our of Kobe also make a stop in Yokahama along the way as well. It's feasible but all conjecture on my part.
Whenever the Genuine Ace sets out can always look and see if it stops enroute in Yokahama....

TPMS was reporting 43 psi when I picked up the car.
Door jamb sticker says 41 psi. So does TPMS recommended pressure.
I used my Longacre racing gauge and all tires were at 45 psi cold.
Dropped the pressure at 39 psi cold this morning and went for a drive. Much better.

Oh that's excellent! (y)
We'll probably put ours down to 38 psi. Our Platinum will be heavier though so will have to see what it says on the door jamb.

IMO after reading several posts 38 psi might be the ideal tire pressure. Not sure if you had followed a post by ScottishAriya? He reported and displayed the door plaque sticker on his UK issued Ariya Evolve + and over there Nissan recommends 38psi on all four tires for normal loading with the exception to increase air pressure to 44psi rear for heavy loading. Also after 7000 miles he measure tire tread wear on all tires and found they continued to wear evenly.

Thanks for the info. I'll go looking for his posts. I was sure I'd read that UK psi was lower than ours. I thinks it's because Nissan wants to eke out all the EPA miles they can thus higher pressures in North America. I'm good going with whatever the UK recommended pressures are.
