The Lancia Delta Is Coming Back as an EV

Lancia is, admittedly, a company that still exists. A part of the ever-expanding Stellantis family of brands, it’s been far from relevant on the global stage for over a decade. It’s floundered during a dark age of building rebadged Chryslers and forgettable city cars, far from the glory of its heyday. That may be about to change. According to Lancia’s CEO, the Delta is coming back.

“It will return and it will be a true Delta: an exciting car, a manifesto of progress and technology. And obviously, it’ll be electric” said CEO Luca Napolitano in an automatically translated version of an interview with Italian outlet Corriere Della Sera.

Lancia Delta is a legendary nameplate, one that spawned the high-performance purpose-built S4 rally car, the insane Stradale homologation special, the phenomenal Integrale, and the even wilder Integrale Evoluzione/Evoluzione II. The first-generation car won the World Rally Championship a record-setting six times in a row, making it a legend for the sport. Few badges carry such pedigree.
