Nissan pushed back the release date of the Ariya electric SUV due to semiconductor shortages and other supply chain disruptions. That’s the statement of the Japanese automaker, quoted by Reuters on Tuesday.
The Ariya was previously scheduled to launch in mid-2021 but was delayed due to a COVID-19-related chip shortage.
A limited edition SUV version went on sale in Japan as planned in January. Besides Tesla, Nissan is one of the pioneers of mass electric vehicle sales with the Leaf in 2010.
