Have a look at the steering wheel, the dashboard, and the driver armrest.
When we last spoke about Nissan, the video the company released gave us the impression the Ariya is very likely to kill the Leaf. Unless the hatchback becomes more attractive – a water-cooled battery pack will help a lot – it may not attract as many buyers as the new electric CUV. If you are as curious to see it as the guys from AriyaForums.com, they have managed to see some parts of the car before anyone else. Thank European patent offices for that.
The user Will-Mac found three links that each reveal seven pictures of the steering wheel, the dashboard, and what seems to be the driver armrest. If you see that they still show a right-hand drive vehicle, they could refer to the concept car, but that is not the case.
The dashboard has a different shape in the upper part. While the concept has a curved line that comes from the upper part of the door panels, the superior surface of this instrument panel is way more conventional. It is clearly for the production version of the car.
