Nissan ARIYA named Auto Express 2022 Car of the Year

The new Nissan ARIYA has taken home not one, but two wins at this year’s Auto Express Awards! Securing both the ‘Best Mid-Sized Company Car’ and overall ‘Car of the Year’ title, this new electrified model really does stand out from the rest.

Available to order now, customers can enjoy a fully electric range of up to 329 miles, and features Japanese-inspired design, advanced technologies and a luxurious and spacious cabin.

Andrew Humberstone, Managing Director at Nissan GB, said:

“We are absolutely thrilled to receive this recognition for our incredible new 100% electric crossover and would like to thank the judges for this fantastic award. The ARIYA perfectly encapsulates the design, tech and performance of our next-generation EVs and will continue Nissan’s pioneering journey in electrification and support our route to carbon neutrality.”

The judges at Auto Express were keen to highlight ARIYA’s all round talents, and particularly praised the vehicle’s compelling blend of head-turning looks, premium appeal and composed driving dynamics, plus a range of well over 300 miles.

Judges also claimed that “the newcomer goes straight to the top of the class” for business users.

Steve Fowler, Editor-in-Chief of Auto Express, added:

“The ARIYA is the most premium-feeling Nissan we’ve seen yet, but it backs this up with impressive technology, punchy performance and clever storage. It mixes style and substance seamlessly, and is an advanced EV right for the modern era, as many motorists seriously consider – with many making the switch – to all-electric motoring. It’s our Car of the Year 2022.”

Drawing on Nissan’s leadership in electrification and segment-defining crossover capabilities, the Nissan ARIYA seamlessly delivers a premium EV experience and advanced driving capabilities.
