2024 Lancia Ypsilon debuts with stellar design & 400+ km range


Yup, Lancia unveiled a brand-new model after a looooong time. I mean, the brand hasn’t had a new model since 2011—for various reasons, but hey, better late than never, right? Well, here it is then, the 4th generation Lancia Ypsilon. The photos we’re seeing here are of the Ypsilon Cassina Limited Edition, limited to 1,906 units, created in collaboration with the furniture brand Cassina. Prices in Italy for the limited edition start at €39,999 (includes VAT and road tax).

Although from front-three-quarter angles the new Ypsilon might look like one of those compact crossover SUVs, from rear-three-quarter angles, I think, there’s no confusion with regards to the bodystyle we’re looking at. As for the design, I think the designers have tried to create a lineage with those front fascia curves and the roofline and windows + that black element on the side, but I don’t think a lot of people can see that lineage because the overall design at first glance looks like a complete departure from the past. But anyway, I kinda like the design, and I think the target audience will also like it.

The new Ypsilon is built on Stellantis’ e-CMP (Common Modular Platform) platform, the one that is used by models such as the Peugeot e-208 and the Fiat 600e. Measuring 4.08 m long, 1.76 m wide and 1.44 m tall, it nicely slots into Europe’s B-segment.


As for the other important numbers, well, the front electric motor offers 115 kW (156 metric hp) and 260 Nm (192 lb-ft) of torque. A 51 kWh battery pack is estimated to offer a WLTP combined range of up to 403 km (250 mi). DC fast-charging is claimed to be capable of offering 100 km (62 mi) worth of juice in 10 minutes. Do also note that as standard, the Ypsilon rides on 17-inch alloy wheels.

Inside the new Ypsilon, there’s something called S.A.L.A., an acronym for Sound Air Light Augmentation. It is essentially Lancia’s brand name for the UX inside, similar to how Mercedes brands it as MBUX. It talks about how digital displays bring together the audio, climate control and lighting functions.

Other key highlights of the new Ypsilon include two 10.25-inch displays, wireless Apple CarPlay & Android Auto connectivity, three USB-C ports, a wireless smartphone charging pad, electrically adjustable front seats, seat upholstery content in 100% recycled yarn, and Level 2 autonomous driving.
