For a while now, more manufacturers are deciding to equip their vehicles with huge touch screens with a “tablet” design in which to bring together the vast majority of the car’s functions. Tesla is, in fact, one of the biggest advocates of this solution. With its Model S and Model X (as well as with the later Model 3 and Model Y) it has brought into fashion a type of dashboard in which the buttons disappear entirely in favor a large “tablet.”
However, Nissan is one of the few brands that resists this fashion, as its prototype Ariya Concept demonstrates, which advances the lines of its future electric SUV based on the modular platform CMF-EV. According to Nissan, its designers gave up the “tablet” aesthetic for Ariya touch panels in favor of a “wave” design for aesthetics and functionality.
The production Nissan Ariya is expected to debut later this year. This D-segment SUV, which will be in charge of releasing those mentioned above CMF-EV modular platform in the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance, will have to face models such as the Ford Mustang Mach-E, the Tesla Model Y, or the Volkswagen ID. 4. Initially, the vehicle will be sold globally and will feature a sophisticated e-4ORCE all-wheel-drive system.
