The First New Lancia Since 2011 Shows Quirky Design Early

Lancia has returned! Though not exactly how we had hoped—a Delta Integrale replacement with a rally aesthetic—the new Ypsilon is nonetheless a significant development because it is the company’s first new offering since 2011. Although its formal release is scheduled for next month, we may now examine its design in more detail.

The Masera Facebook page provided the video that you are viewing, which features the supermini in full reveal. It’s being filmed by an Alfa Romeo Stelvio camera car for what looks to be a commercial video. Although the video isn’t flawless, it gives us a complete view of the new Ypsilon.

The best part is that we also notice inspiration from the 037 and Stratos, while there are some clear references to the Pu-Ra HPE idea. All things considered, it’s a stylish city car with a unique front aspect, yet it’s also important to note that it shares a lot of similarities with other Stellantis goods. Given that Lancia, Peugeot, Citroen, and Opel all have the same foundation, this shouldn’t really come as a surprise. The new Ypsilon’s body proportions thus resemble those of the Peugeot 208 and Opel Corsa.

From what we know so far, the new hatchback from Italy will be sold with hybrid and fully electric powertrains. Looking at what the Corsa and 208 have to offer, the EV version will most likely be equipped with a 52-kilowatt-hour battery pack and a single electric motor on the front axle with a peak output of 156 horsepower. This will make the new Ypsilon by far the most powerful generation of the model in its history as the model that is still available in Italy has a 70-hp hybridized three-cylinder engine.
