The Ypsilon Rally 4 HF is Lancia's first rally car in 31 years

The reborn Ypsilon is not just a Peugeot in Lancia packaging. It is the brand's first rally car since the Delta HF in 1993.

After a 31-year hiatus, Lancia will be rallying again. Not since 1993 has the Italian brand, now owned by Stellantis, participated in a rally.

But it's over now. Or, in fact, soon. Because it won't be until 2025 that the new Lancia Ypsilon Rally 4 HF will start rallying. The number four also indicates that the car is built to the regulations in the same class.

In contrast to the street car, which initially only comes as an electric car, for a hybrid version it keeps company, it is a 1.2-litre petrol engine that pulls the rally car's front wheels.

A very small engine, but good for 212 horsepower. Something more than the electric car, which makes do with 156 horsepower and 250 Nm. Like the sister car Peugeot e-208, the range is given as 403 kilometers according to the WLTP standard. So no one should count on that for the sake of reality.

Like the rally car, the hybrid version has a 1.2-litre petrol engine. But on public roads, the Lancia makes do with 100 horsepower and a consumption of 21.7 kilometers per liter. The bad news? None of the cars will ever come to Denmark.

The Toyota GR Yaris, on the other hand, does that. But just like in France, the small, three-cylinder Japanese is furiously expensive to get on plates.

In Denmark, Toyota wants almost DKK 800,000 for the car. In comparison, the larger Supra, which is built on a BMW Z4, costs DKK 870,000 after the tax is paid. However, that price is not enough for the version with BMW's famous straight six.
