Lancia Pulls Off The Covers Of Its Ypsilon HF Hot Hatchback

Electric Hot Hatch Produces 240 Horsepower To The Front Wheels...

Stellantis’ Lancia brand is making waves again with the revival of its high-performance spirit in the form of the all-new Ypsilon HF. This hot hatch combines the brand’s rich heritage with cutting-edge technology to create a thrilling driving experience for enthusiasts.

Under the hood, the Ypsilon HF boasts a powerful 100% electric 240-horsepower engine. Considering the Ypsilon’s size, it’s environmentally friendly and packs a serious punch on the road. With an impressive acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h (0 to 62 mph) in just 5.8 seconds, this hatchback is designed for those who crave excitement behind the wheel.

Inspired by Lancia’s iconic racing history, the Ypsilon HF features a design that pays homage to the brand’s most legendary cars. With lowered suspension, a widened wheel track, and assertive, muscular shapes, this hot hatch exudes performance from every angle.

Lancia enthusiasts will be thrilled to see the return of the HF logo, a historic signature of high-performance Lancia models. Initially introduced in the 1960s, this logo has become synonymous with driving excellence and motorsport victories. The little elephant emblem, chosen as a lucky charm, symbolizes the unstoppable spirit of Lancia drivers.

While previous HF models relied on combustion engines, the new Ypsilon HF is leading the European charge toward a greener future with its electric powertrain. As European regulations continue to grow, the Ypsilon HF and its 240 horsepower are generated by a front-mounted motor and a 54-kWh battery pack; this hatchback delivers impressive performance without compromising sustainability.

And the best part? All this performance and innovation comes at an affordable price. With a starting price of just €24,900 (or about $27,080 USD), the Ypsilon HF offers premium features without breaking the bank. So whether you’re a speed enthusiast or just looking for a stylish ride, the Ypsilon HF has something for everyone. The only problem is that the Ypsilon HF won’t hit European roads until May 2025.

The debut of the Ypsilon HF marks just the beginning of Lancia’s revival. With plans to introduce HF versions of the upcoming Gamma and Delta in the coming years, the brand is set to continue its legacy of high-performance vehicles. Whether on the road or the racetrack, Lancia is once again proving itself as a force to be reckoned with in the automotive world.

While we love our internal combustion engines (ICEs) here in North America, we would love to see Stellantis offer a high-performance hatchback here with another one of its brands. Say, the future all-electric Chrysler brand? Just saying.
