The 2023 Nissan Ariya is coming, and on Tuesday, the automaker announced reservations are officially open for the SUV along with prices. The least expensive way into an Ariya will cost buyers $47,125 after a $1,175 destination charge, but the costs climb to just over $60,000 when optioning out a top-of-the-line model.

The trim breakdown for the Ariya is pretty simple with the Venture Plus trim serving as the base model, Ariya Evolve Plus as a midgrade option and the Platinum Plus as a range-topping version. For those that take part in the reservation process, there’s one special edition model available, too. That’s the Premiere trim, which won’t be sold at dealers when Nissan starts stocking them with the EV next year. Every trim except the Platinum Plus features an 87 kilowatt-hour battery with 238 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque. EPA estimates aren’t in yet, but Nissan thinks it’ll do 300 miles on a charge. Front-wheel drive is the only option for these three trims.
