Lancia concept teased, debuts April 15


With the financial backing of Stellantis, historic Italian brand Lancia is about to embark on an EV transformation in which it will introduce three new models by 2028.

As a preview of those models and beyond, Lancia will present a concept car on April 15 at an event coinciding with Milan Design Week.

Lancia this week released a teaser of the concept and described it as a “brand manifesto” for the next decade. The teaser shows what appears to be the rear of a fastback vehicle, perhaps even a sports car.

Lancia has mentioned themes such as emotion and purity when describing its future lineup.

Lancia’s sole offering at present is the Ypsilon minicar, which was introduced in 2011. A redesigned Ypsilon with electric power will arrive in 2024 as the first of Lancia’s three new EVs. The car will likely be a twin to the new electric Fiat 500e that will arrive in the U.S. in 2024, similar to how the current Ypsilon is a twin to the former Fiat 500.

A new model described by Lancia as a flagship will follow in 2024 and then a modern Delta will arrive in 2028. The flagship might end up as a modern Aurelia, while the Delta is expected to be a performance-focused hatchback, perhaps like the rally-inspired Delta HF of the 1980s.

Given Lancia’s focus on the European market, there’s little chance any of the EVs will reach the U.S.
