Nissan Prepping Electric Z and Other Models as Future Electrification Plans Take Shape

Nissan, a modern electric vehicle pioneer, is about to turn up the heat

  • Ariya is finally coming this fall.

  • Leaf will be replaced by a crossover.

  • And there’s an electric pickup on the way too.

Nissan has completed a two-year update process across its nameplates but now’s not the time to take it easy. Within the next three years, some models will be dropped, others replaced, while new ones will be launched.

Nissan Has Closed the Order Books for the 2023 Ariya in the US

Between now and 2025, both the Nissan Maxima and Titan will be pulled from the lineup. The pioneering Leaf will also be shown the door, but it will eventually be replaced by an electric crossover. While not specified that it will take over from the Maxima, a new electric sedan is expected for 2025 based on the cool IMs concept from the 2019 Detroit Auto Show.

In the more immediate future, the long-awaited Ariya SUV is coming our way this fall. And Nissan is touting it as a segment-defining product.

“The attention to quality and the innovations we’ve brought — the central console, how the human-to-machine interface works, how the switches are built into the panels — is a step above what has been available in this segment so far,” Papin told Automotive News.

The Ariya will set expectations for Nissan’s future collection of new products. It could very well maintain the Japanese automaker’s ongoing good tidings.
