Lancia’s Redesigned Ypsilon Unveiled Ahead of February Launch

Lancia Ypsilon 1 (

Undisguised photos reveal a sleek design with notable enhancements and electric powertrain options.

Lancia is set to debut the newly redesigned Ypsilon in February, and recent undisguised photos offer a glimpse of what’s to come. Drawing inspiration from the Pu+Ra HPE concept, the model boasts a distinctive thick black band adorned with “LANCIA” lettering, accompanied by slender LED lighting strips and low-mounted headlights. Vertical air curtains and a broad central intake contribute to its modern and stylish appearance.

While the rear end appears more subdued, circular taillights with Y-shaped elements connected by a black bar echo the design cues at the front. Additional features include a small rear spoiler and a gracefully curved rear window.

Inside, spy photographers have captured a digital instrument cluster and a new SALA infotainment system. The interior is expected to showcase a flat-bottom steering wheel, a tray-like table, and an illuminated orb reminiscent of an Amazon Echo device.

Lancia has teased the model gradually, confirming that the Ypsilon will be available with hybrid and electric powertrains. Although specifics remain unclear, rumors suggest that the electric variant might share similarities with the Jeep Avenger and Peugeot e-208. If these rumors hold true, drivers can anticipate a 154 hp (115 kW / 156 PS) motor and a 54 kWh battery providing an estimated range of 248 miles (400 km).
