Has anyone heard or seen an actual Ariya with this AWD drive system at all? I haven’t read an article or watched a video Nissan has actually one built for drive yet. I want to know how it compares with other EV dual motor AWD systems such as Lexus 4-Direct AWD.

I don't want to be the downer of the crowd, but maybe the better question is "Has anyone heard or seen an actual Ariya at all"? I mean that in all seriousness. I'm not talking about models at car shows, or demos of 'pre release' vehicles on closed courses in a few Youtube videos. I'm talking about the actual production vehicle, in the hands of reviewers out in the open, on public roads for all to see. Like ya know, actual reviews?

It's June, going into summer. Where is this thing?!?! I said many months ago that it feels like vaporware. That feeling is only getting worse.

The Ariya's relevance, not just as an an AWD EV, but as an EV in any form, is really become questionable in my mind.

I'm about ready to move on, and I bet I'm not the only one that feels that way... And what do we hear from Nissan in response? Crickets.

I was invited by Nissan to test drive one at a local event here in Phoenix on June 19th. They had time slots open every 20 minutes over 2 days that They sent me. I dont know too much more about it but will be taking pictures if they allow on the 19th.

There are a few YT videos from Japan with actual car delivered

Um, want to hang out? lol

Seriously, how do I get in on that? I'm actually somewhat expecting to see an Ariya test mule on the road somewhere. I frequently see Nissan test vehicles as their test facility isn't far outside of the Phoenix valley.

Do you live in the Valley? Do you have one reserved at a dealership in the Valley? I don't know if they had a lottery or if they sent out the invite to all reservation holders in the phoenix area, or if they sent it out to reservation holders at particular dealerships. Mine is reserved through Avondale Nissan.
