The Nissan Ariya Concept model made its highly anticipated debut at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show. This all-electric sport utility vehicle will be packed with never-before-seen technologies, such as the ProPILOT 2.0 and a self-driving function.

Sneak Preview on the Nissan Ariya Concept Car

You won't find a whole lot of hardware and accessories in the Nissan Ariya Concept. This futuristic model has a spacious cockpit with minimal clutter. A 12.3-inch HD touch screen claims all of the attention inside the cockpit. One electronic knob is available to manage the next-generation multimedia system. Otherwise, you'll have to tap the high-resolution LCD monitor or use voice commands. However, a traditional electronic button is integrated into the dashboard for an easy start of the propulsion system.

Speaking of the powertrain, this concept SUV runs entirely on electricity. Dual electric motors produce plenty of output to propel the all-wheel drive. This all-new SUV takes advantage of the CHAdeMO charging technology that's projected to grow rapidly soon. The charging port automatically unlocks when it senses a person approaching with a compatible key or synced smartphone.

The Nissan Ariya is also expected to have the ProPILOT 2.0 suite that includes several active safety features and other digital services that supplement the built-in GPS navigation system. For example, this all-new technology is expected to work smoothly with the NissanConnect interface. You can use the Door to Door Navigation function to plan the best routes for commutes and other types of trips.

Recognizing natural speech commands, the all-new Virtual Personal Assistant will guide you along the way. This technology is more responsive than Siri Eyes Free in the latest iPhones. The Virtual Personal Assistant is programmed to optimize the Ariya Concept's powertrain and other systems. By contrast, Siri and Google Assistant usually have limitations in the infotainment systems.

This Nissan model also has some innovative features that are inspired by current self-driving vehicles. You can take your hands off the steering wheel and still enjoy a safe ride in a single lane. This function is linked to the integrated GPS navigation system in real-time. However, hands-off driving isn't recommended when you drive through tunnels or other deep passages that have weak satellite signals. Using multiple sensors to scan the surroundings in a 360-degree range, the self-driving technology is expected to evolve in the next few years.
