A few details:

Model year is 2023. Expected to be "available for purchase in fall 2022".
Only the very top trim - Platinum+ - is AWD. 389 HP, not too shabby. FWD (!) versions have 238 HP
Range varies from 265 miles to 300 miles (Platinum+ AWD is worst, Venture+ is best).
Battery size: 91 kWh? Looks like might be 87 kWh usable.
Not listed here but found on another page: "Engage" trim line with 214HP, 66 kWh, 215 mile range, and looks like the Evolve+ will come as AWD in the future.
Haven't found the L3 charging speed yet.

I have a spot in the list of reservations just shy of #20.000. I've bought an EV6 today. The Ariya has a bigger battery but not a larger projected range and doesn't charge as fast as the EV6/Ioniq5. The other issue is that Nissan is currently at 164,000 cars sold in the USA (per 12/31/21), so the federal tax credit may be tapering off once I would get the Ariya. And, of course, the non-AWD Ariya models are FWD, which is just dumb. I was expecting more from Nissan after all the experience they have gained with the Leaf.

The Kia Dealers rip you off so they can keep the $7500.00 rebate. The car is already way overpriced at MSRP.
