New spy shots have let slip on the design of the incoming Lancia Ypsilon, the Italian firm’s first new product in 13 years.
According to international reports, the hatchback was on a TV advertisement shoot when it was captured without wearing any camouflage, showing off its rather stylish exterior and interior.
The new Ypsilon lends much of its appearance to the Pu+Ra HPE concept that was revealed in April last year, including its Y-shaped front daytime running light and Stratos-inspired tail lamps.
It’s a similar story inside, with the distinct coffee table-like structure appearing between the driver and passenger below the central infotainment screen.
The new Lancia is of course based on the same platform as the Peugeot 208, meaning it’ll be offered in hybrid and a fully electric variants. Based on this information, the EV will likely feature a 113kW electric motor up front and a 54kWh battery.
It’s worth noting that this isn’t the first time we’ve seen images of the car unmasked, as a test car was stolen and crashed into a canal at the end of last year where it was subsequently pulled out and captured on camera.
Lancia plans to officially reveal the new Ypsilon on February 14, with further details about the model expected to be confirmed at the time, including local availability.
