Nissan Ariya Electric SUV Delayed due to Pandemic & Chip Shortage
The sale of Nissan's new electric SUV - Ariya, will be delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the global chip shortage that has proven a serious issue for most automakers.
Nissan announced last year that it had planned to begin sales of the Ariya in Japan from mid-2021, but the official rollout has now been moved over to "this winter”, executive vice president - Asako Hoshino said.
"Sales in the United States and Europe will typically come around two months later”, she added.
Nissan expects the model to be sold around tens of thousands in the first year of sales, with the highest demand being in Europe. The SUV will also be sold in China, but no specific timeline has been disclosed on the matter just yet.
