Who would have thought this would happen, but here it is, the all-new Lancia. The problem is, this Italian brand has not produced cars for the past 13 years.

Stellantis is determined to keep all 14 of its subsidiary brands under the FCA-PSA merger. This also means Lancia has the opportunity to improve its image.

This new 2024 Ypsilon becomes Lancia’s first electric vehicle (EV), although hybrid and petrol versions are set to follow.

It is built on the shared CMP/eCMP platform with the Peugeot 208/e-208, with different exterior styling. Lancia stated that the design of its front and rear lights is inspired by their iconic rally car. The round rear lights are reminiscent of the Stratos.

There are also ‘Y’ motifs on the front and rear lights. Meanwhile, the wheel arches, side mirrors, and rear pillars are finished in black. The interior of the cabin is quite different from its Peugeot counterpart, but given that we are in 2024, there are still two screens on the dashboard.

There are also several physical buttons for air conditioning control. Lancia has provided wireless charging pads, three USB-C sockets, and connectivity for Apple Carplay and Android Auto. Additional features include ambient lighting and a cabin filter.

The Lancia Ypsilon is powered by a front-mounted electric motor with an output of 154hp and 260Nm of torque. Power is supplied by a 51kWh battery pack, providing a driving range of 403km.

For charging, the battery can reach 80 percent from 20 percent in just 24 minutes using a DC charger.

What are your thoughts on this Lancia Ypsilon? Are there fans who miss the Lancia brand?
