With financial backing from Stellantis, historic Italian brand Lancia is about to embark on an EV transformation that will see the launch of three new models by 2028.
As a preview of these models and beyond, Lancia will unveil a concept car on April 15 at an event to coincide with Milan Design Week.
Lancia released a teaser of the concept this week, describing it as a “brand manifesto” for the next decade. The teaser shows what appears to be the rear of a fastback vehicle, maybe even a sports car.
Lancia has mentioned themes of emotion and purity when describing its future lineup.
Lancia’s only offering at the moment is the minicar Ypsilon, which was introduced in 2011. A redesigned Ypsilon with an electric drive will be launched in 2024 as the first of Lancia’s three new electric vehicles. The car will likely be a twin of the new electric Fiat 500e that will arrive in the US in 2024, much like the current Ypsilon is a twin of the earlier Fiat 500.
A new model, described by Lancia as a flagship, will follow in 2024, and then a modern Delta in 2028. The flagship could end up as the modern Aurelia, while the Delta is expected to be a performance-oriented hatch, perhaps like the rally-inspired Delta HF the 1980s.
Given Lancia’s focus on the European market, there’s little chance that any of the EVs will reach the US
