The new Lancia Ypsilon is getting closer: the debut is in fact expected for 2024, probably already during the first quarter. No official images have ever been published, but we got a first taste of the style by looking at the Pu+Ra HPE, a concept that anticipates the appearance of the Lancias of the future.
We just know that it will be a electrified crossover, with hybrid and 100% electric engines. Now new information is arriving directly from Lancia CEO Luca Napolitano who announced the now imminent production of the new Ypsilon in a LinkedIn post. Also talking about the engines that will move it.
Electric or mild hybrid
The biggest news is about the hybrid engines. In fact, until today we did not know if what type they would be. The answer is mild hybrid a 48 Volt. But now the totomild opens.
New Lancia Ypsilon, our render
In fact, within the Stellantis Group there are two types of light hybrids: On the one hand there is the 1.2 PureTech da 136 CV brought to its debut by the Peugeot 3008 and 5008, ready to take its place on a large part of the Leone range. On the other, the 130 bhp 1.5 used in the Jeep Renegade. A “middle hybrid”, capable of moving the car in electric mode for a handful of kilometres, unlike other mild hybrids.
Whereas the platform the basis of the new Lancia Ypsilon will in all probability be the CMP, it is much easier to imagine the presence of the 1.2 PureTech. The same one used, in a non-electrified 100 HP version, by Jeep Avengerbased on the same mechanics of the “cousin” Lancia.
As for the electric motor, Napolitano did not give any information, but also in this case the others electric Stellantis they come to our aid. In fact, it is easy to imagine that the electric Ypsilon will use the 156hp engine of Avenger and DS 3 (also ready for the Fiat 600 and the small crossover signed by Alfa Romeo) powered by 54 kWh batteries, for around 400 km of autonomy.
