Lancia Ypsilon goes into production, orders open in Italy

Max McDee, 01 May 2024

Lancia, the iconic Italian automaker, is entering the electric era with its much-anticipated redesigned Ypsilon. The new 2024 Ypsilon boasts a choice of powertrains - a versatile hybrid and a potent all-electric version - wrapped in a funky Italian design. After a short wait, the car is already in production, and orders for all trims are now open in Italy.

Customers can select from three distinct Ypsilon trims, each with a hybrid or fully electric powertrain. The simply named New Lancia Ypsilon offers modern elegance, and the company claims it is ideal for younger drivers desiring Italian flair without breaking the bank. Those seeking the ultimate status symbol should consider the Ypsilon LX. With a focus on luxury and technology, this is a top-tier trim. Finally, the New Lancia Ypsilon Edizione Cassina epitomizes Italian design and living-room comfort.

Customers seeking the ultimate in emission-free driving have the all-electric Ypsilon. With a 156-horsepower (115kW) motor and 51-kWh battery, it boasts segment-leading performance. Plus, with a range of up to 250 miles (WLTP combined cycle) and fast charging capabilities, range anxiety may become a thing of the past.

True to the brand's heritage, the Ypsilon' updated exterior evokes Lancia's iconic grille. At the same time, contemporary LED lighting ensures a distinctive visual presence. The stylish Italian design language continues throughout the interior, focusing on materials and finishes.

The Ypsilon Edizione Cassina is a result of a collaboration rarely seen in the automotive world. Partnering with the renowned Italian furniture brand Cassina, this special-edition trim transforms the Ypsilon's interior into an inviting, sophisticated "living room" on wheels. Sustainable materials and refined craftsmanship enhance the experience, highlighting Lancia's commitment to innovation and elegance.

Lancia wants to be seen as committed to accessible premium motoring. Hence, the base hybrid starts at a competitive $26,700. Unfortunately, the all-electric version begins at a much higher $37,400. Lancia is trying to soften the blow with attractive financing, including tempting monthly payment rates. You can have the brand new electric Ypsilon for as little as $161 per month but only after paying nearly $11,000 deposit and with a final payment of nearly $19,900.

The 2024 Lancia Ypsilon is an interesting choice for discerning drivers seeking a premium and efficient city car. Its style, performance, and technology make it stand out in the crowded electric vehicle marketplace.
