Mitsubishi Evo Is Coming Back in a New Form

The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution was one of the most beloved Mitsubishi models. This sports sedan had a big following, but it wasn’t enough to keep it in production. The last Evo rolled off the line in 2016. However, we have learned that there is a chance the Mitsubishi Evo is coming back, but in a new form.

Recently, in an interview with Motor1, Mitsubishi’s UK managing director, Lance Bradley, indicated that the Evo nameplate could make a comeback. If it did make a return, he claimed that it would be different than the previous Evo models.

“Our focus is on SUVs and electrified drivetrains, but it’s possible that there could be an option for a more performance-orientated version of one of the models,” Bradley elaborated. “The hybrid market is still developing, but an electric drivetrain is usually quicker than an internal combustion powertrain, so you can have some very exciting electrified drivetrains.”

Bradley went on to say that Evo fans are very attached to the model’s name. If Mitsubishi did resurrect the Evo moniker, it would need to be very careful with its choice. We would expect to see something spectacular that would be true to this ride’s heritage.
