Is anyone else bothered by the (apparent) fact that the color options seem to be specific to the 4 different option packages?

I need the AWD version so I've ordered a Platinum+, but I want the Deep Ocean Blue Pearl exterior, which seems to only be available in the Evolve+.

Not sure what the reasoning is for this lack of choice; and perhaps I'm oddly focused on color - but I'd prefer to choose from any of the colors I see available with the 4 different packages. It seem that in the UK for instance, this is possible. Why is the US market being limited?

Yes - I too was disappointed, especially seeing how the UK has all the color choices, I think. I was able to order a color a I like in the Premier - Northern Lights.

Similarly, I found a color I like (Boulder Grey), but it's not the color I would have picked if I'd had a choice of the full palette. I'm sure eventually (in several years when all orders have ben filled), you'll be able to choose any color in the US.

Yes !

I want the full Pro Pilot 2.0, but the color choices for the trim that offers that are not acceptable to us, so we’re stepping if down one trim level so that we can get the blue !

Same here! I settled on boulder gray although my first choice was the deep blue in the Evolve trim. However I didn't want the light colored interior. I've seen a few boulder gray nissans around and I think I will still enjoy the color a lot.

Glad that others share my opinion. I think Nissan know's it's not a deal-breaker at this point for US constomers, but I'm guessing that soon after us Early Adopters take delivery of ours, they'll open up more colors... that's how it always seems to work ;-).

The color choice may not be an issue for most, but if you ever end up selling a car, having a rare color makes it much more desirable an easily sold - so for some, it is a concern.

I downloaded the UK brochure and they offer all 10 colors on all models. Hmmmm. What I haven't heard discussed is the premium for the different colors. In the UK, green is the only standard color. The others cost more. I have ordered the pearl white/metallic black combo. In the UK it is listed as a $1900 (USD) cost option! I'm very disappointed that Nissan is offering a vehicle with only expensive paint. No options for the standard, no cost paint.

I also noted that the only no extra cost color there is the green. There is a hefty cost premium listed for the 2 tone pearl (around $1900 USD) that I have not seen mentioned anywhere else. I am also concerned that Nissan might reach the 200,000 EV mark before the Premium+ models are produced after all of the FWD versions in "late" fall 2022. This would bring an end to the $7500 Federal Tax credit. This could be a game changer for a lot of us waiting anxiously for the AWD version.

I was on the phone with Nissan this morning in regards to my U.S. account login, and during our conversation when I expressed my disappointment in the color options, I was told that they (phone reps) had been told that it is possible that new color combinations will be available to us once the dealers contact us after February 17th (in the U.S.).

Sure hope a Premiere is offered in Blue !

Yes, the limited color choices flies in the face of much of Nissan's ad campaign. Now, as U.S. buyers can reserve a model, we see the truth. The most expensive model, the Platinum, is offered with only 4 color options! Black, white, silver and red. Well, the first three are available on virtually every car made in the world so there's really just one choice, red! No copper, no burgundy, no blue, no green. What a joke, especially when you realize that cheaper versions get color options that the most expensive model doesn't!
Wow! And because I was so looking forward to ordering the AWD with copper color, I seriously began to reexamine other manufacturers EV"s after I saw how Nissan was limiting options for the Platinum. Nissan, you're killing me!

You are 100% exactly in alignment with my thoughts as well. Exactly. I wanted the AWD in copper. And if my reservation is locked into either white/black/grey/red, then I will likely be looking at other options and perhaps waiting to see what Lexus brings to the table). I don't have to buy an EV this year. Or even next. But I do have to buy an EV that ticks all of the boxes, and color is a really big one. I think Nissan needs a bigger reminder of this, so we all should be talking about this issue with the dealerships as soon as opportunities arise. And I'm not willing to spend an extra $3k on a decent wrap, although that is probably what the dealership will suggest :(:mad:

My fiancé got an email from Nissan today (the 17th), but we seem to be having problems logging in.
This may help:

Personally, I want more interior color options, particularly for the Platinum+ trim. I’ll reserve full judgment until I see it in person, but “blue gray” makes it difficult for me to envision anything other than the awful blue velour overload on my grandmother’s 1992 Lumina.

While visiting the Ariya reservation website today I noticed that the Passion Red Tri-Coat color has sold out. Appears now that I must be one of many who selected this color when placing my reservation. However I must admit that as I placed my reservation I had concerns that this red color may clash with the ”blue gray” I interior when I see it in person. IMO the only safe bet is a black interior to compliment a red exterior. So I have to ask: Anyone else out there who reserved a Passion Red Ariya concerned that a blue grey interior could clash with their exterior color choice?

If the Ariya Evolove+ I'm looking forward to buying is as great as my 1992 Lumina was for so many years, I'll take it.

Welcome to the forum @Just Another Murphy! Is the Ariya going to be your first EV? Also how long did you have your Lumina for?
Yes, the Ariya will be my first EV. The Lumina reliably took me almost 200,000 miles. We currently have two cars, one a 2011 Versa hatchback which is a stupendous vehicle. Our experience with the Nissan Versa was a big factor in my trust that the Ariya will be a dependable, positive EV experience.

Considered EVs from any other automakers before deciding to go with the Ariya?
