Hi! Just wanted to introduce myself. I'm Oliver from Yuma, Arizona. Been a long-time Nissan fan since I was a kid and our family owned a succession of Nissans. Kept the bug all my life and currently own a couple of GT-Rs and an Armada and like them enough that I have my own personal car blog at 23GT.net with a small associated YouTube channel.

I've wanted to go electric since I test drove a first-gen Leaf a while back but wanted something a bit sexier and longer-ranged than the little Nissan hatch. Since it was going to be a daily driver to replace my Scion FR-S I didn't want something too expensive either. The Ariya ticks most of the boxes. I know the Mustang Mach-E and upcoming Ioniq 5/EV6 are solid alternatives but I figured I'd stick with Nissan since I've had good luck and a good relationship with the company and my local dealer. Put in my reservation for Sunrise Copper Pearl Premiere Ariya on November 21st and can't wait until the day I can finally have an electric daily driver :)

In the meantime since the wait looks like it'll be a longish one I figured I'd join up here. Thanks for having me!

Welcome! I have the same model Ariya on order, and have never owned a Nissan before this one, but want an EV. This one meets my requirements, so it wins. I've been a Honda/Toyota person, historically.

Thanks for the welcome! Here's hoping the Ariya lives up to your expectations and mine! My most recent daily drivers have been a Honda Fit and my current Scion FR-S so ironically the Ariya will be the first time I'll be daily driving a Nissan in a long time despite how I like their cars lol.

Couple of GT-Rs? Jealous, but why? Variety is the spice of life.
Well, if you're looking for variety they're not all the same. One is a heavily-modded R35 GT-R with just under a thousand hp, the other is a fully US-legal Midnight Purple 2 R34 GT-R, and the third is a restored 1 of 500 Nismo R32 GT-R. It's a product of an unhealthy obsession with Gran Turismo as a kid lol.
