When you take a Formula E car and combine it with a street-legal electric roadster, you get the futuristic Nissan Ariya Single Seater Concept. While the production model probably won’t look this extreme, it will have a 389 hp and 442 lb-ft of torque, dual motor, all-wheel-drive powertrain in a single-seat chassis. Aesthetically, it features a “V motion” grille found on Nissan’s current models and an a Halo safety device to protect the driver.
Nissan drew inspiration from the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship for the Ariya Single Seater Concept. Why? The automaker races in the all-electric world championship to bring the excitement and fun of zero-emission electric vehicles to a global audience. This experience helps them be on the cutting edge of electric vehicle research and design.
