The Italian automotive brand Lanciarenowned for its sporting heritage and elegant designs, is preparing to mark a new milestone in its history with the launch of the Ypsilon HF. This new version promises to carry on the tradition of Lancia's high-performance models, known as "HF".
Recently, Lancia CEO Luca Napolitano has shared some interesting details about the future Lancia Ypsilon HF. in an exclusive interview with Quattroruote. With a focus on innovation and tradition, this new model looks set to redefine expectations in the compact luxury car segment.
The Ypsilon HF, due in 2025is the fruit of the brand's renewal strategy. Napolitano revealed that the Ypsilon HF would, of course, be all-electric, with an emphasis on durability and performance. The CEO confirmed that the car will not be a small SUV, as some have speculated (in our opinion, this is more likely to be the case with the Gamma). a classic sedan, approximately 4 metres long and a height of 1.44 m. It will be very similar to the concept, both inside and out. It will also be 2 cm wider than the "classic" Ypsilon.
With a range of over 400 km, this car is designed not only as a secondary vehicle, but also as a viable choice for consumers' main car. In terms of performance, based on the STLA Medium platform, thehe Ypsilon HF promises to deliver 240 hp and accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.8 seconds, interesting figures for a car in its class. It will be all-wheel drive, which indicates that this Ypsilon HF will feature an electric motor front and rear, like the future Jeep Avenger 4xe... (and one day on the Alfa Romeo B-SUV?).
The exterior design of the Ypsilon HF will be inspired by the Pu+Ra HPE concept, featuring clean, modern lines. Attention to detail will also be evident in the cabin, where the collaboration with Cassina will be reflected in the choice of materials and finishes.
With the Lancia Ypsilon HF, the Italian brand reaffirms its commitment to quality, performance and style. We'll see if it conquers the hearts of car enthusiasts.
But before 2025, first go to February 2024 in Milan, where the wiser version of the Ypsilonwill be presented in both hybrid and electric versions.
