The electric crossover Nissan Ariya is being prepared for the exit, the creators of which did not want to fill the interior with individuality, but also make it functional and comfortable.
Lately, observers, as well as ordinary users of new cars, have expressed their disapproval of the disappearance of physical controls, especially for climate control. One by one, manufacturers are ditching physical controls in favor of touch buttons and additional screens. Nissan Ariya will also go in this direction, but the car's creators argue that the control of the systems in the new car will be very convenient.
The climate control system in the Nissan Ariya looks very interesting. The unit is integrated into the lower part of the dashboard, which has a wood texture. This provides not only sound but also tactile feedback.
We created a clean space by mixing tactile controls with a wood texture. At the same time, we tried not to worsen the usability of the controls, which allowed us to achieve both functionality and an attractive appearance. By applying the wood grain to the plastic panel using a hydro-printing process, we gave the panel a realistic wood feel. At the same time, it allowed transparent icons to come to life when backlit. - One of the leading Nissan designers Hideki Tago
The Nissan Ariya is expected to be released by the end of the year in Europe and America for about $ 40,000. It will also be Nissan's electric vehicle with the longest range, over 500 km, in line with the WLTP test cycle.
