Lancia said on Monday it would reveal its new Ypsilon small car in February, the first of three new premium models promised by the brand as part of a multiyear relaunch plan under which it will again sell vehicles outside Italy.

After shrinking to just one model in its home market, the 117-year-old brand, part of Stellantis, also has plans for a midsize crossover in 2026 and a compact hatchback in 2028, both fully electric.

The new Ypsilon will initially be presented as a fully-electric, limited edition version of 1,906 units, Lancia said in a newsletter.

The car will go on sale in Italy before summer next year and will also be available in a mild-hybrid version. Sales in other European markets will follow.
