Watch This Epic Journey: A Wild 2023 Nissan Ariya EV on 39-Inch Tires is Going to Circumnavigate Earth

An English couple collaborated with Nissan and Arctic Trucks to design a unique 2023 Nissan Ariya e-4ORCE with 39-inch tires, an elevation, and adjustments to the body for better ground clearance.

Nissan will send an altered version of its Ariya electric crossover from the North Pole to the South Pole in order to demonstrate the potential of electric vehicles. The expedition, which is slated to begin in March, will cover a distance of 16,777 miles and last for 10 months. To give the Ariya extra clearance, it is fitted with 39-inch tall BF Goodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2 tires and a custom Arctic Trucks suspension lift. Additionally, skid plates have been installed at the front and rear of the vehicle. The roof has a unique unit that holds a drone that can be launched from the inside of the car, and it also contains an incorporated espresso machine.

The crew is going to pull a model trailer which has a collapsible and light-weight wind turbine and solar panels. This will be employed to recharge the Ariya. This implies that, if the subzero temperatures influence the battery power - and it will - all the team should do is halt and launch the hauled recharger. Whilst the drive from one pole to the other is already an unprecedented venture, this could be a pioneering act for EVs and renewable energy.

The 2023 Nissan Ariya used for the expedition is equipped with the e-4ORCE all-wheel-drive system that includes two motors and torque vectoring. The peak output of the US version is 389 hp, which is significantly higher than the 214 hp provided by the single-motor front-wheel-drive Ariyas.
