Supermini Lancia Ypsilon reminds himself of a new special version

May 29, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

A new edition of the miniature city car will be available for purchase in Italy.

This year, Lancia already released a special version of its small hatchback Ypsilon – it was a hybrid that reminds us of the “soft-hybrid” Fiat 500 and Panda. Now, this Italian company has introduced a new model based on an electrified supermini. It will be intended only for the Italian car market. This is a version called EcoChic with Maryne’s distinctive exterior, inspired by the color of the sea.

In addition, such a special hybrid receives EcoChic nameplates on C-pillars and black gloss decor on the front panel, side mirrors and rear bumper, as well as black caps for 15-inch steel wheels. For the Pack Style package, 15-inch alloy wheels and rear safety glass are available.

There are no special changes regarding the interior. Of the innovations – a special “environmental” seat upholstery. The material was made from plastic collected by fishermen from the Mediterranean Sea.

  The novelty is set in motion by the same soft hybrid three-cylinder gasoline engine FireFly for 1 liter, which was introduced in March 2020. Its power reaches 70 hp, and helps with work with a 12-volt BSG electric motor. Combined with the new 6-speed manual transmission, an electrified transmission will reduce CO2 emissions by about 24% compared with the 1.2-liter engine that it replaced. Prices for the Ypsilon Hybrid Maryne starts at 16,400 euros.
