Prior teaser images disclosed the front design of the vehicle, characterized by a prominent T-shaped pattern in the daytime running lights. The interior glimpse also featured the inscription “Cassina,” a reference to a prestigious Italian furniture brand. This brand has influenced the interior design of the new Lancia models, including a limited-edition Lancia Ypsilon Cassina, capped at 1,906 units.
While specific details about the new Ypsilon remain undisclosed, Lancia has indicated that it will be available with either electric or gasoline powertrains. The model is expected to retain its hatchback form and utilize Stellantis’ CMP platform, suitable for subcompact vehicles.
Looking ahead, Lancia plans to introduce a flagship model and a contemporary Delta in 2026 and 2028, respectively. These models will exclusively employ electric powertrains, with the flagship slated to utilize the Stellantis STLA Medium platform.
