The Italian automaker, Lancia, has shared more details about its upcoming all-electric flagship, which will be the second car to come after the revival of the brand. The anticipated vehicle will hit the roads in 2026 and will be manufactured in Melfi, Italy.

This Lancia flagship will be a fastback, stretching to 4.7 meters. It will be based on the Stellantis STLA Medium platform.

Luca Napolitano, Lancia's CEO, shed some vague details on the vehicle: "Imagine feeling as if you’re lounging in an Italian living room while driving this car," he mused. The aim is to encapsulate the quintessential Italian spirit, so much so that approximately half of the units produced are expected to charm buyers outside Italy.

The STLA Medium platform uses a 400V architecture and can fit batteries of up to 98kWh capacity. Those can achieve a range of over 435 miles, but a more modest version with 311 miles range is also available. It's unclear if the latter will be an option for the Lancia flagship, but the ampler battery was officially confirmed. Front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive will both be on the menu.

What started with the Pu+Ra HPE concept has now turned into a ten-year plan with three significant launches. The timeline reads: The New Ypsilon in 2024, this yet-to-be-named electric flagship in 2026, and the new Delta in 2028. From 2026 Lancia will phase out ICE vehicles from its lineup and will only sell electric vehicles by 2028,.

The Melfi plant plays a pivotal role in churning out next-gen electric vehicles. Under the umbrella of the Dare Forward 2030 initiative, the company is on a mission: achieving zero carbon emissions by 2038. Ambitious? Yes. Necessary? Absolutely.
