The availability of Nissan Motor Co’s (7201.T) Ariya, a new electric SUV, will be delayed because of the coronavirus pandemic and a global shortage of chips, an official of the car maker said on Friday.

Last year Nissan said it planned to begin sales of the Ariya in Japan from mid-2021. But the rollout of the limited model in the Asian nation has been pushed to “this winter”, the firm’s executive vice president, Asako Hoshino, told reporters.
