The Lancia Ypsilon range has been extended with the introduction of a new hybrid version.

Lancia did not provide many details, but they did mention that the model is equipped with a 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine, a six-speed e-DCT automatic transmission, and a 48V mild hybrid system. This setup allows the car to generate a relatively moderate output of 100 hp (74 kW).

The hybrid can reach 100 km/h in just 9.3 seconds and has a top speed of 190 km/h. However, this premium B-segment hatchback prioritizes efficiency over speed.

The model has a fuel consumption rating of 4.6L/100km. Lancia also mentioned that the hatchback has e-Creeping and e-Queuing functions, allowing it to be driven short distances on electricity alone. 

The hybrid is being launched in Edizione Limitata Cassina guise, just like the EV. The model has a familiar blue exterior with LED lighting units and 17-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels. The hybrid has additional intakes as well as a visible exhaust.

The interior seems to be unchanged. The front seats are heated and upholstered in blue velvet. The car has a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster and a matching 10.25-inch S.A.L.A. infotainment system. Additionally, it features a Level 2 semi-autonomous driving system, adaptive cruise control, autonomous emergency braking, and a blind spot monitoring system.

In Italy, pricing starts at €28,000, which is significantly less than the €40,000 being asked for the EV Cassina launch edition. Although the hybrid option is currently available for purchase, it will not be available for long, as Lancia plans to transition to EV-only vehicles by 2028. As part of this effort, all new models launched from 2026 onward will be electric-only.
