I received my Ariya Evolve + one week ago... so far so good, despite terrible weather conditions up here in the Great White North.

Grey with Black trim. Replaced my 2019 Leaf SV Plus. Night and Day difference!

Congratulations and welcome to the forum! Still waiting for the Premiere I reserved, but kind of glad it's not here yet because of the weather! 馃槅
Great to hear about another delivery up here. Congratulations.
Please share your Canadian winter experience. Especially range and DC charging speed.

Congrats! You will love it!
Where about are you in the Great White North? My sister is from Kingston, ONT. While they were down here in Socal during the holidays, my brother in law had a chance to check out the Ariya. He's a Mazda guy but regretted buying his CX5 when I told him to get the Subaru Forester AWD.

I need to ask. What was your build date? The placard is located at the driver side door jamb. Thx
Thanks guys.... trying not to take it out, since no snow tires at this point. Will pick those out next fall. We are getting 25cm of snow here in Vernon BC over the next 24 hrs, so it's staying in the garage until the roads clear, but drove well last week. The range was down approx 30% from expected while the temperature was -17 celsius. Haven't charged it yet out and about.

Build date: 10/22

I did have my preorder in within 30 minutes of the announcement way back when.

Hi! Is your evolve the boulder grey that was at Kelowna Nissan? I have a reservation on premiere AWD there and waiting patiently 馃檪. According to KN my reservation and yours were the first two in for that dealer. We are in Coldstream. Mark let us sit in that lovely vehicle! Will love to hear more about your experience. 30 percent battery loss at minus 17 Celsius sounds about right from what I have heard. A real downside of BEV in the Great White
North. Enjoy your vehicle and keep us up to date. There is an evolve in Winnipeg on this forum as well.
That's my girl! We named her Midori, which is Japanese for "Green"

Neat! When I get (if?) mine we can get together and compare notes. I think yours is the first in the Okanagan. How was the pick up experience?
Couldn't have been better... arrived Feb 1 but decided to leave it in the showroom until the 21st hoping the roads would dry up. Mark was totally fine with that. Also gave them time to get the splash guards, floor mats etc in, and get the ceramic done. I had Sheldon at IQ do the 3M. Perfect job, as always.

I'm a retiree and need to get with the new world. 馃榾. What is ceramic? A protective finish? Dealer do it? And 3M....is that fabric protection? PS thanks for leaving in the showroom for a bit....allowed my wife to confirm vehicle is good for her as well. She was concerned she wouldn't be able to read the electronic dash! Mark said KNissan expecting two more evolves in next few weeks ....might actually get a test drive.
Ceramic is a paint protectant... $799 was a good price, but will see how it holds up with our temperature extremes. Must say I'm a bit dubious.

The 3M is also a transparent protector for the whole frontal area of the car which protects against rock chips. Do it to all my cars and mountain bikes... Now this really does work and is worth the investment. Sheldon at IQ Autographics in Vernon is a master of his art. You literally can't tell it is there...

I will say there is a bit of a learning curve, but the Leaf got me 85% of the way. Only regret is the E Pedal, which functions quite differently from before. Liked the Leaf better in this regard.

I'm the opposite, waiting for more Evolve+ coming in.. 2 dealers that I've been talking to, each has 2 premieres on the lot. Apparently some have cancelled the reservation.. It's TX, so we love big gas guzzling here more than EV :p
One thing I have not seen discussed in this forum is the coverage for propilot two in Canada. I have seen a map of highways in the US where propilot two works...but not for canada. What is required? Superior gps mapping? Well maintained road lines?
Anyone know our there?

There are maps that exists, as GM has coverage in Canada, but there are extra sensors in the front of the car. We don't know if they are on the Canadian cars, and possibly they exchanged the cost for other features like the Bose audio, which is only on the most expensive US model.
