I'm expecting in a week or two we'll get an email from them saying as an Ariya Reservist and as someone registered for the Meta Quest, they're going to send me an iRobot to thank me for my patience on both the Ariya and the Meta Quest.They may put some announcement in the "Ariya Experience" on the Quest VR. Here they will bow and tell how it's not their fault but supply chain issues. (pure speculation on my part)
Us Canadians never even got offered the meta quest 😢I'm expecting in a week or two we'll get an email from them saying as an Ariya Reservist and as someone registered for the Meta Quest, they're going to send me an iRobot to thank me for my patience on both the Ariya and the Meta Quest.
By spring there will be another tchotchke promise that will also never come.
So end of year timeframe is officially out the window yea?i just received a call from the sales manager at Wilder Auto Center in Port Angeles, Washington. He called to tell me they had a monthly meeting of Dealers, and they complained about no news. they were told nothing will happen until the big reveal or coming out in the U.S. of A. and they were told February would be the time frame.
I spoke to them again today and again was still told that FWD models would still start deliveries by end of year.So end of year timeframe is officially out the window yea?
That’s the answer nobody knows, unfortunately. It would be nice to have more official communication from Nissan, rather than just conjecture from an online forum or a random employee on the reservation support number.My reservation portal also changed. Nissan would establish production schedules based on the reservations placed, colors, trim levels, etc. Does closing the portals to change mean that our orders are in production or that the vehicles have shipped? That will determine when we get the Ariya we ordered.
And just like Ariya, BYD is not available in the United States.While we wait for Nissan to deliver on the Ariya, a process that has seen delays over the past year, another company is making great strides towards becoming a dominating force in the EV market. Here is a link to a report by the Electric Viking on the Chinese company BYD. Nissan should be very worried.Copy and paste this link in your browser.
