Came back from the event.

Most saddest thing I've learned today was US Ariya doesn't have feature that you can park your car from outside of vehicle which JAPAN Ariya can. That was coolest thing I always wanted too...anyway US has auto console box I'll take it lol. Talk to the staff there that my e force AWD should be delivered around end of Dec to begging of January. Hope I'll get a great Christmas gift lol I brought the picture of apartment complex's charger so they actually can tell if Ariya compatible with it or not. Because I only see tesla lining up 😬 found out tesla has adopter so they can charge but Ariya is good to go without adopter 👍 Cargo is absolutely feel smaller than CX5 but manageable. Excited for my Ariya !!

Are you saying the Ariya does not have auto park feature? Which version did you test? Premiere? I will be there tomorrow!

I asked to 3 people same thing just in case. They showed us self parking when we were in the car. What I'm talking about is that in Japan there is another key for controlling car from outside and you park your car. Unfortunately that feature is only in Japan. They talked about update but I don't think that feature will be here since it needs another key. Out car was Premiere and there were 3 or 4 cars only white and Grey.

I don't understand why anyone would want that. I look at it this way. So you park your car from outside because there isn't enough space to open your door and get out or in. BUT the car you parked next to has the same issue and if they don't have the park feature. Then they end up opening their door and scraping their pants and everything else against your car so they can get in. So what did you accomplish by parking your car into such a tiny spot? Getting your car hit by doors and booty's and packages. No thanks. I'll park my car somewhere else so it won't get hit.

As japanese this feature is just cool 😎 just feeling thing. Plus we care about others more than american that i felt when i came to US. You dont see damaged or unfixed car in japan. People really cares about hitting and trouble.

I also went to the event yesterday...surprised the event was such small scale considering this is promoting the launch of their all new EV platform. Anyways, I got my 2 laps to get a feel of the car...the handling was alright for such a big car and the acceleration wasn't a wow. To be fair the course was way too short and its hard to push the car with the guy next to you keep reminding you to start slowing down. Back in the tent, they had the lower trim model on display for people to take a closer look. Overall the car looks refined...my wife's comment was "it isn't ugly"...I think my wife would have liked it more if the display car had the panoramic moonroof and a sharper color (boulder gray isn't very eye catching tbh).

Some info I got from them are:
1. The AWD version will disable the rear motor once it is cruising steadily at freeway speed to help with efficiency. I read this somewhere in this forum already...but want to see if they will say they same thing just cause my daily commute is 80-90+ of smooth freeway driving (I am blessed with reverse commute)
2. ProPilot2.0 is way better. Talked to a guy named Ernie who seems very knowledgeable (all the other Nissan folks kept asking him to confirm stuff) and he was describing his experience between the two system. Obviously he had to say ProPilot was already a great system...but the ProPilot2 is like a professional driver vs teenager driver. The HD mapping (blue line?) also makes the system much more reliable. (I don't really have any experience with self driving cars...but he seemed genuinely excited about the ProPilot2)
3. Same Ernie guy said they will start getting some AWD cars to start training the staff (target is end of this year). But unlikely to be available to the public for any demo. He also said he isn't aware of an actual AWD Aryia anywhere yet...maybe in Japan. Just said youtube will likely show it first lol.

This AWD e-4orce thing seems like such a mystery. Nissan went through the trouble to demonstrate this e-4orce tech indirectly on the Leaf / a ramen car / mini model car track...but despite the Ariya is already launched, it doesn't seem like there are any AWD e-4orce Ariya that exist.

Not yet AWD in Japan according to my friend who is still waiting AWD. Dealership told her around December in Tokyo.
