Nissan Ariya’s real-world range (range test)

We performed a range test on the Nissan Ariya and the results are as follows

Of all the electric cars that we have the opportunity to test, we like to carry out a complete range test. This type of test allows us to know in a more realistic way the range offered by the vehicle in conditions of a journey on a motorway or highway.

As you know, an electric car’s range is reduced when we increase speed, which means that the most energy consumption is generated on motorways and highways.

The Nissan Ariya has passed through our hands, you can read our opinion of the Nissan Ariya on our website, where we give you all the details of the vehicle and impressions after testing it on a daily basis for several days.

And of course we also put it to the test of autonomy and that we are going to detail below.

Nissan Ariya range test

The first thing to note is that the version tested is the Nissan Ariya with the 63 kWh battery, the smallest battery option as it is also available with an 87 kWh battery and a range of up to 500 km on the WLTP cycle.

In the case of the Nissan Ariya 63 kWh, its homologated range is 360 km under the WLTP cycle, but how many kilometres can we really do with this version on the highway?

You can find out in this video we’ve prepared for you.

As we show you in the video, after a 200 km trip on a fairly hilly route (uphill and downhill), our average fuel consumption figures were 20.9 kWh per 100 km at an average speed of 102 km/h.

The test day was cloudy and the outside temperature can be considered optimal for high battery performance.

Therefore, if the average consumption is 20.9 kWh per 100 km, with the 63 kWh battery we can drive a maximum of 300 kilometres without having to stop to charge the battery.

This means that for the Nissan Ariya’s SUV segment, the fuel consumption is acceptable (neither too high nor too low) and within the standards of other electric vehicles.

Obviously, opting for the 87 kWh battery gives greater range and in turn greater peace of mind when tackling long-distance journeys.
