The chic Italian is about to return with the firm intention of taking advantage of the economies of scale inherent in the striking force of Stellantis.
New Lancia Ypsilon (2023) – The aging Italian will finally hand over to a brand new model, starting next year, taking advantage of the integration of its brand under the Stellantis umbrella. A first recovery plan which will be followed, a few years later, by the launch of a compact SUVbut also a compact potentially renamed Delta.
Made in Spain
While our colleagues from TheArgus revealed, a few weeks ago, the migration of the production of the future restyled Peugeot e-208 to theZaragoza factorythe Italian press understands that this arrival in Spain, next to the Opel Corsa, will coincide with the introduction of a third city car. It is relaunch the dusty firm Lancia as soon as possiblein which Carlos Tavarès, at the head of the Stellantis group, still wants to believe.
It is therefore at little cost, as the Corsa was developed on the basis of the 208, that the new Ypsilon will be reborn from its ashes. A comeback that will not prevent him from stand out from its cousins by a more chic treatment, both indoors and outdoors. But, as our illustration suggests, the silhouette of the Peugeot and Opel from which it will come should be easily identifiable, its parents having developed this project in a hurry.
Much more modern than the current one, the new Ypsilon will also be available with a new generation 100% electric motorizationwhile its 3-cylinder thermal blocks will upgrade to micro-hybridation 48 V.
New Lancia Ypsilon price
Launched in 2023, the new Lancia Ypsilon should increase its price list compared to the current one, sold very cheaply in Italy. She will suffer from upmarket wanted by its parents which, in a way, will revive the late DS3. We can expect an evolving entry-level price around €18,000.
