Adventure-ready Nissan Ariya unveiled for epic Pole to Pole expedition

Husband and wife team take on world-first electric adventure to showcase the capability of EV’s and highlight positive action against the climate crisis

REYKJAVIK, Iceland – Set amongst Arctic-like conditions, the Pole to Pole expedition team and Nissan today unveiled an adventure-ready version of the new Ariya electric SUV, which will undertake a 27,000km trip from the magnetic North Pole to the South Pole.

During this epic adventure aiming to kick off this March, the Ariya will need to cope with breath-taking but extreme terrains and environments, including ice fields, deep snow, steep mountain climbs and inhospitable desert dunes. Arctic Trucks, specialists in polar expedition vehicles, have collaborated with Nissan design and engineering teams to prepare the Ariya for these tough conditions.

Modifications to the car have been intentionally minimal, with no changes to the battery or powertrain, but the most recognisable difference is the adaption of the suspension and addition of 39-inch tyres. When coupled with e-4ORCE, Nissan’s advanced electric all-wheel-control technology, these modifications will enable the expedition car to tackle extreme terrains whilst giving Chris and Julie the necessary comfort and control to reach the South Pole.

Chris Ramsey, Pole to Pole EV Expedition Leader, commented: “One of the things that underpins all the adventures we do is that we take a standard production EV and aim to make minimal changes to clearly demonstrate its real, everyday capabilities, regardless of where you are driving it. Our Nissan Ariya is no different as the vehicle’s drivetrain and battery has remained factory standard, demonstrating just how capable and versatile the production Ariya is. We’ve modified the suspension and widened the wheel arches so we can benefit from the stable platform and support of the 39-inch BF Goodrich tyres. I’m incredibly excited to get behind the wheel of what was already a brilliant vehicle, but now feels equipped to take on the ends of the earth in style!”

As a self-confessed coffee lover, Chris will have access to a specially integrated espresso machine with a good supply of sustainable coffee. Whilst the on-demand caffeine will help him focus on the long and isolated parts of the journey, Chris can also capture the beauty of these spectacular environments using a drone that can launch directly from the utility unit on the roof. One further innovation is the portable, renewable energy unit that will be used to charge the Ariya in the polar regions. The towable prototype includes a packable, lightweight wind turbine and solar panels that will take advantage of high winds and long daylight hours to provide charge for the EV’s battery when Chris and Julie stop to rest.

Julie Ramsey, co-driver on Pole to Pole, commented: “The planning and preparation for Pole to Pole has been such a big part of our lives over the past four years so I am really looking forward to getting the expedition underway in March. We’re going to discover so many interesting initiatives from communities and individuals who are taking positive action against climate change and I’m looking forward to sharing these experiences and stories with everyone. We are doing something that has never been attempted before, a world-first, and ultimately that is what makes it so exciting.”

Nissan increases customer convenience with SignatureFLEX lease

Published

Program offers lessees a streamlined option to purchase additional miles online or via mobile app

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Nissan Motor Acceptance Company (NMAC) announced today it is offering a new leasing option that provides more convenient, flexible lease terms for its customers. SignatureFLEX provides drivers the opportunity to easily add miles during their lease contract if they are approaching or may exceed their mileage limit – providing flexibility for those who drive lower miles annually and helping avoid potential penalties at lease turn-in.

The program reflects changing consumer driving habits and an increased proportion of lower-mileage lease contracts for NMAC customers, offering flexibility for lessees who are driving less. Leases with 10,000-mile limits now account for the majority of new NMAC originations, compared to 12,000-miles previously.

“Our data clearly shows that Nissan customers are choosing lower mileage limits for their leases, so we’re providing a more convenient, more flexible way for them to manage their needs,” said Jim DeTrude, vice president, NMAC Sales & Marketing. “SignatureFLEX allows drivers to pay for only the mileage that they plan to use, while having peace of mind they can conveniently buy more miles if their driving habits change.”

Customers can purchase additional mileage at any time during their lease. Vehicles with compatible connected car technology will provide automatic, personalized notifications to drivers about their current and projected lease mileage. Additional miles can be purchased through the NMAC web portal or mobile app.

SignatureFLEX is available on all Nissan lease terms and mileage limits, including Nissan’s recently introduced ultra-low-mileage, 5,000-mile/36-month term. Following a limited launch with select models in late 2022, the SignatureFLEX option is now offered on all vehicles across the Nissan lineup, including the all-new, all-electric 2023 Ariya crossover. Additional program details are available on the NMAC web portal.
