That's still quite a long ways away.

How do those 63 and 87 KwH packs compare to Tesla or other models? I'm curious what sort of range/performance we're looking at here.

The available battery capacities are comparable, but Tesla offers available higher-output electric motor modules in the Model Y and Model 3.

One version of the Tesla Model Y has a 75 kWh battery. The rear motor on a Model Y is 211 kW and if equipped, the front motor is an additional 147 kW. Model Y can have up to 469 kW of power. The Ariya has a 160 kW motor in the single motor base version and up to 290 kW in the dual motor version with the largest battery. In terms of performance, the AWD variants will need about 7.5 seconds to reach 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h). The fastest of all Ariya with AWD and dual motors will do 0-62 mph in 5.1 seconds. Nissan Ariya weight is estimated around 4500 lbs while a Tesla Model Y weighs 4416 lbs, so roughly around the same weight.

The kWh rating refers to the battery pack's energy capacity. We can compare the Ariya's battery capacity with other EVs to get an idea of range and performance, however it is important to note that several factors substantially affect EV range and performance. 1) Vehicle weight, 2) Coefficient of drag (especially important for EVs), 3) Efficiency of the electric motor module itself and the supporting systems, including the software 4) the power rating (in kW) of the electric motor itself. People often convert these kW ratings to horsepower to help compare the vehicles to ICE vehicles, but the motors are rated in kW.

I'm pretty sure that graphic was on a bunch of Nissan websites for a while and is an official Nissan graphic, not something an enthusiast made. I could have sworn I saw it on the Nissan UK site
