3. NISSAN ARIYA
Electric cars are nothing new for Nissan: it launched the Leaf back in 2010, and the electric hatch is currently in its second generation. So the Ariya that arrives this year feels like one of those long overdue film sequels that should have been made years ago.
The Ariya will be offered with two battery sizes (62kWh and 87kWh), with the top e-4orce (that’s Nissan’s weird name for its all-wheel-drive performance model) producing 389bhp. Prices start from £41,845, rising to £53,790 for that e-4orce model.
