Finally, as top of the range we have the Ariya Evolve e-4ORCE. With all-wheel drive, this is the most powerful of the Ariyas sold in Portugal, with 225 kW (306 hp) and 600 Nm, figures that allow it to go from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.7s and reach 200 km/h in Maximum speed. The 87 kWh battery allows up to 493 km of autonomy.
It should be noted that by adopting an electric motor on the rear axle, the Ariya Evolve e-4ORCE sees the luggage compartment capacity drop from the 468 l offered in the front-wheel drive versions to 415 l.
