Italian carmaker Lancia has finally revealed its Ypsilon electric hatchback ahead of a full unveiling later this month.
Until now, the historic brand has not entered the electric age and has relied on a Fiat 500-based petrol supermini wearing the same name. But the new model becomes Lancia's first EV and uses key components from a handful of well-proven electric models.
The Ypsilon uses the same platform as the Vauxhall Corsa Electric, Peugeot E-208, Jeep Avenger and Fiat 600e, and it's likely to pinch the 54kWh battery pack and 154bhp electric motor combo giving a 250-mile range.
The carmaker says the newcomer "represent[s] the "maximum expression of design, comfort and well-being on board a Lancia". It uses some key design themes from the Pura HPE Concept shown in early 2023, such as the distinctive black panel at the front containing LED day-running lights, the headlight design, the Lancia shield badge being located on the c-pillar.
