Nissan Postpones Ariya Electric SUV Sales over Supply Chain Disruptions
The Index Today
Nissan Motor Co. has announced on Monday that it will be postponing the release of its much-awaited electric Ariya B6 SUV series over disruptions in the global supply chain.
According to Reuters, this is the second time the automaker has delayed the release of the SUV model which had been previously pushed back from its original launch date during mid-2021 due to issues stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic. Following this, Nissan had decided to release it sometime in late March, which has now been slated to come out on May 12 in Japan, as per a company statement.
The Ariya, whose limited-edition model was on sale in Japan in January, is Nissan’s second fully-electric car model after the launch of the Leaf hatchback.
