Now that it is part of the Stellantis group merging PSA and FCA Automobile, Lancia not going to die. Carlos Tavares wants to save the Turin brand, which has been in decline for several years after hazardous manipulations undertaken over the past two decades (no one has forgotten the last Theme, Travel and flavia). While it currently markets only one model – the venerable Ypsilon – in Italy, Lancia is preparing its return with a real range of novelties.
If we will have to wait until 2024 to discover the first of these novelties, the all-new Ypsilon designed on a basis similar to that of the Peugeot 208 and other current Opel Corsas, the manufacturer is already unveiling its new logo and taking the opportunity to show a strange sculpture without wheels or windows. Inspired by the very particular silhouette of the legendary Stratos, this sculpture announces the style elements of future Lancia road cars. Admittedly, the next Ypsilon will display a completely different profile…
Three new Lancias
After the 2024 Ypsilon, Lancia will launch an all-new Aurelia in 2026, probably as an SUV, then a compact Delta in 2028. The brand plans to become 100% electric by 2026, which suggests that the last two novelties mentioned will not offer a thermal version.
