I came across this review and comparison of the Ariya on Youtube:

The review is in Danish, but the auto-translated captions were quite good. The Ariya stands out for it's interior design and comfort on the road, though the road handling, range, and charging are sub-par. That was with the 63kWh FWD version. They got 305 km range at a steady 110km/hr (191 mi at 69mph), and were able to recharge 220km in 30 minutes. That works out to ~90kW average charging. All of that is with the small battery, which suggests ~282 mile range and 133kW charging for the large battery, if we can extrapolate linearly by the battery size.

Thanks for the link. Btw, the correct linear extrapolation factor per battery size should be 87/63=1.38 which should result in 262 mile range at ~69mph and 124 kW charging rate for the larger 87kWh battery. With combined slower city and highway driving (50/50), the range should reach ~300 mi which is close to the EPA rating. Also 30 minute charging should add 303 km or 188 mi.

You're right, of course. Somehow I had misremembered the two battery sizes as 63 and 93kWh, and was using that. It's 87 or 63kWh useable, out of 91 or 66kWh total.

If I calculated/converted correctly here, the consumption reflected in this video = 3.01 miles /kWh at 69mph which seems pretty respectable for the Ariya with a drag coefficient of nearly .30. When I attended the Ariya ride and drive event in Tacoma a few weeks back, I quizzed one of the engineers about the “real world“ consumption of the Ariya at 70mph . Although he couldn’t confirm Nissan had any official data on this matter…..his best guess was 3.0 miles/kWh at 70mph - which totally aligns with this video.
