Nissan has revealed pricing for its upcoming all-electric CUV, the Ariya — reports Automotive News. The Nissan Ariya will start at $47,125 USD (before potential tax incentives).

The Ariya is Nissan’s first new electric vehicle (EV) since the Japanese automaker introduced the first mass-produced, battery-powered EV in the U.S. — the Leaf — around a decade ago. Nissan has positioned the Ariya in one of the EV market’s emerging sweet spots: Crossover Utility Vehicles, or CUVs.

The Ariya is the first in a range of EVs to be built in a joint venture between Nissan and Renault. The compact crossover will start at $47,125 USD (with shipping), and should land in U.S. dealerships sometime this fall.

Nissan will be producing four different variants of the Ariya. Here’s a breakdown of the pricing and key specifications for each of the models, courtesy of Nissan:

Nissan hopes to take advantage of the growing popularity of electric crossovers. The electric CUV segment is up 268% so far this year, with the Tesla Model Y leading the charge. The Nissan Ariya will have to compete against the Model Y, Volkswagen ID.4, and Ford Mustang Mach-E for market share.

In September, Nissan unveiled its Townstar compact electric van in Europe. There have also been reports of the automaker working on a fully electric version of its Titan truck since late last year.
