  • SPOTTED: 2023 Nissan Ariya EV crossover testing in Malaysia. Could the Philippines be next?

    A 2023 Nissan Ariya electric vehicle (EV) has been spotted undergoing road testing in Malaysia. Thanks to our friends from sister publication WapCar, we got photos of the battery-electric crossover on the go. Unlike typical test mules covered in camouflage to conceal the vehicle's identity and body lines, the Ariya was hiding in plain sight, which may point to a launch in Malaysia soon.

This puts the LEAF in the firing line of yet another battery-electric hatchback. The 2023 BYD Dolphin, much like the Nissan, has five doors, five seats, and zero emissions.
