The minimalist dashboard lacks traditional buttons. One especially inventive approach was to have mechanical related operations vibrate when pressed simulating the action of pressing a button. Thankfully, the heating settings are separate, touch sensitive pads on the dashboard, rather than being incorporated into the touch screen which may be difficult to operate while driving. The majority of the cars function will be managed via the central touch screen or the new hey nissan voice command system which is similar to that used in recent mercedes, bmw and volkswagen vehicles.

Unlike the leaf, which only has four wheel drive.

The all wheel, drive aria is expected to go from 0 60 miles per hour in less than five seconds, which is comparable to higher end electric vehicles.

The aria starting price of forty seven thousand one hundred and twenty five dollars puts it beyond the leaf and other inexpensive evs, but it will be less expensive than the tesla model by long range, which starts at about fifty thousand dollars, even with the shorter range.

The aria and model y will fight for customers. People could continue with the entry level venture plus trim, which has the longest driving range among the res forum levels, because the prevailing mentality is that range is crucial to effectively switching from gasoline to electricity.
