Looks we'll have to wait a little longer for the Ariya to come out.

Automotive News is reporting that Nissan is delaying the launch of the Ariya due to the effects of the pandemic and global microchip shortage.

Nissan originally planned on starting sales in the middle of the year in Japan. Now Nissan will open them in the winter for Japan, then sales in the US and Europe will follow two months after.

So depending on when it starts in Japan, we might not be able buy an Ariya until next year.
