Both the Ariya and ID.4 are expected to start from $35,000-40,000 with similar kWh batteries and range. VW says the ID4 can get up to 310 miles between charges with the Ariya at just 10 miles less. Battery sizes aside. these are just early figures and could change slightly at launch. The overall experienced offered from both models seems to be a matter of choosing between the sportier Ariya or the more all around ID.4.
Which one does everyone here think they'll gravitate more towards? Also, which specs matter most to you?

im leaning towards the ariya mainly because of the propilot 2.0. tesla autopilot is really great for highway driving, so propilot should be even better with handsfree. i also think the interior of the ariya would be superior to the id4. only thing i hope ariya has is an option for one pedal driving and the car is started when you press brake pedal rather than having to push a start button. just worried i might not get the federal incentive on ariya because of the 200k sales limit. i need that reservation! :)

Given the estimated total sales figures for the Leaf of about 140,000, I'm not worried about Nissan hitting 200K. I don't think Nissan will even export enough Ariyas in the first year to hit the limit (with Leaf sales bottoming out). Just a guess but with the ID.4, MachE, and Model Y all being available before the Ariya along with the projection that the Ioniq 5 will be out before the Ariya, it might take 2 years before we need to worry about hitting the limit.

Will Nissan follow VW by introducing the 2WD first or make the 4WD available at the same time?

ya i guess they wont come close to the quota this year. i just hope to be able to get it by the end of this year, but looks like they are taking their own time with it, which is bad considering they might be losing market share to id4 and new standard range model y, as well as mach e.

i doubt they would do 2wd and 4wd at same time. probably will aim for california sales first with 2wd, and northeast sales after with 4wd.

Updating this thread..

ID 4 has been out a few Months and overall Reviews have been impressive on Range and Specifically on how quiet the cabin is as you are driving. Seats very comfortable as is the ride.

Design interior exterior .. lets say very good but "normal" nothing extravagant.

INfo screen is said to be not very responsive UNLESS you turn off Navigation ..which like most Brands is usually junk anyway.. I'll just plug Google maps in.


I have test drive the ID 4 and can attest to all of the above.


I REALLY REALLY wanted the Aryria (and still may get it)

Just frustrated that not even Demos on Lot to test drive and then if we like place an order.

Either way I have decided to wait on my decision until Spring (I think ;) )... If I love the Aryria ..I'll spend the extra and get it ..if I don't I'll save probably 8K or so and get a low mileage used ID 4 on CarGuurs


I drive a 2017 Bolt right now ..love it except the charging speed usually 45kW summer , 20Kw winter.. as a Uber Driver..that's just not doable.

Welcome to the forum @EVone
How important are sporty driving dynamics to you? Because it seems to be one way the Ariya will stand out. Nissan keeps mentioning how it shares DNA with its sports cars (primarily the Z) and that could make these more enjoyable to drive.

i test drove the id4 a few weeks ago. it was actually way better than i expected. quieter and more comfortable than my model 3, but not as quick of course. the turning radius on the id4 is absolutely insane. great to drive in the city. if you are coming from a gas car, id4 will feel extremely fun, even though on paper it doesnt seem like it.

I've owned the Chevy Bolt for over ayear..The ID 4's faster charging rate 2 1/2 times faster than the Bolt is what I am mostly interested in. The turning radius is also a big plus driving Uber picking up passengers on the "wrong" side of the street etc..
