This is not an unverified rumor. The Nissan Ariya global press release lists the luggage capacity and other specs at the very bottom of this page: https://global.nissannews.com/en/releas ... 7dfa00076e
466 L = 16.46 cu ft
If this is the case it's honestly embarrassingly small especially given the completion and even the LEAF!
I'm seriously hoping it's a typo but I'm prepared to be disappointed.
The measurement system/standard is murky to me.
For example, I found https://europe.nissannews.com/en-GB/rel ... xt-chapter
from Feb 2013 says
"By moving the charger from the rear of the LEAF to under the bonnet, it has been possible to increase the luggage area by as much as 40 litres... or to put that another way, about the size of a typical airplane ‘carry-on' suitcase. Trunk capacity has increased to 370 litres." That's ~13 cu ft.
Yet, https://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/Find.do ... s&id=33558
under Specs lists the '13 Leaf as having 24 cu feet of luggage volume.
So, given the press release that jdcbomb pointed to, we might be comparing apples vs. oranges, for now.
