    Why?

    Group A isn't set up for EVs, which a Rally4 needs.

    They expecting this at WRC/ERC or just in Italy? How is it so great, what's the story?

    How is the market for EV cars developing in Italy. I have yet to see a charger station rage story from Italy. "The Lancia Ypsilon Rally 4 HF is powered by a 1.2-liter turbocharged 3-cylinder 4-valve-per-cylinder engine that delivers 212 hp. Equipped with front-wheel drive with 5-speed mechanical transmission and mechanical limited-slip differential, the high-performance model is the ideal solution for all rally enthusiasts to enjoy but is also a serious candidate for drivers aspiring to victory in the R4 class and in the two-wheel drive championships."

    When/ if Tesla make their small ev car some one should make a petrol engine Rally 4 version for a laugh.

    How does a rally car, powered by a petrol engine, promote the 100% EV Ypsilon HF ? Is it just a case of any publicity is good publicity for the brand / car and their rally heritage is just something to make use of ?

    It's a brand positioning exercise IMO. Guessing with Citroen, Peugeot and Opel already using x% of the parts, and all these motorsports departments under one roof, it's probably easy for them to do it ahead of feasible EV motorsport in the future.

    But not the HF one they want to base this on.

    They just market it as HF, in a very same manner that Skoda market their product as "Fabia RS Rally2" despite actual road-going Fabia RS not existing since 2014, same as Ford with the "Fiesta RS WRC" without actual RS version of Fiesta ever existing.
    What an audacity.

    It’s a bit sad they killed off all the small supermini hot hatches, and I’m sorry an ‘hot’ electric Ypsilon doesn’t cut it for me.
    Only you know your true potential.
