Subsequent to its unveiling last month in EV form, the new-generation Lancia Ypsilon family has grown to include the ICE-powered member. The new model is a mild-hybrid proposal that makes the car much more affordable compared to the battery-electric variant.
The Italian car manufacturer says the ICE Ypsilon uses a 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine with 48-volt tech. It enjoys 99 hp (100 ps/74 kW) and has an e-DCT with six forward gears. It is clearly no record-breaker, as the 0-62 mph (0 to 100 kph) acceleration is dealt with in 9.3 seconds, and it has a 118 mph (190 kph) top speed.

According to Lancia, the partially-electrified Ypsilon can travel on zero emissions over short distances in crowded cities. The fuel consumption is rated at the equivalent of 51.1 US mpg (4.6 l/100 km/61.4 UK mpg). It features an 11.6-gallon (44 liters) fuel tank and emits 103 g/km of CO2.

Unfortunately, the company hasn't released additional specifications. It did, however, say that this model features electronic functions such as the e-Creeping, e-Queuing, w-Parking, and e-Start, adding that it offers "versatility and respect for the environment."

Lancia's mild-hybrid version of the new-gen 2024 Ypsilon comes in the same configuration as the electric model. Thus, you are looking at the Cassina Limited Edition. It has LED headlamps, 17-inch diamond-cut alloys, and a few other things. It also has a 10.25-inch infotainment system and an equally-sized digital gauge cluster, and it benefits from Level 2 semi-autonomous driving.

Save for the additional intakes in the front bumper and a visible exhaust tip with a cutout in the rear bumper, the ICE-powered Lancia Ypsilon looks the same as the EV variant. Nevertheless, despite being modest, these design changes are enough for anyone to tell it apart, regardless of whether they are looking at the front or the rear end.

Local pricing starts at €28,000, which comes out to $30,410 at the current exchange rates. This makes it way more affordable than the EV version in the same Cassina configuration, which is a €40,000 ($43,440) affair in Italy. Choosing the all-quiet model will give customers an electric motor driving the front wheels, which generates 154 hp (156 ps/115 kW) and 192 lb-ft (260 Nm) of torque. Backing it up is a 51 kWh battery pack, which enables a 250-mile (403 km) range on the WLTP test cycle.

Lancia also offers the mild-hybrid 2024 Ypsilon with a €6,538 ($7,100) deposit and 35 monthly installments of €200 ($217). At the end of the period, customers can either replace or return the car or keep it by paying the remainder €18,512.8 ($20,105). This offer is valid until the end of the month (March 2024) in the company's home market of Italy.
