Mitsubishi Evo Is Coming Back in a New Form

Mitsubishi Evo is coming back - Larry Jay Mitsubishi Charlotte, NC

2015 Lancer Evolution Shown

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.

Say Hello – and Goodbye – to the Lancer Evolution Final Edition in America

Lancer Evolution Final Edition

The Final Edition is going fast, so get yours today!

The Lancer Evo’s story in the US is a generations-long saga of engineering triumph and stylistic innovations, but it has reached its final chapter.

 

Mitsubishi has recently announced the Lancer Evolution Final Edition in America, a vehicle that gives a proud goodbye to an automotive legend.

 

The Lancer Evolution Final Edition in America will feature 303 horsepower (an increase of 12 horsepower from the last model) and 305 lbs of torque. Our favorite modification for the Final Edition is probably the new Bilstein shocks wrapped with all-around Eibach springs and two-piece Brembo front-axle calipers – talk about a smooth ride.

 

The Final Edition will retain that classic Lancer look, with the exaggerated spoiler and athletic posture. It will feature dark-chrome Enkei wheels to match the dark-chrome grille setting and black aluminum roof. You can get the last Evo in four colors: Pearl White, Rally Red, Mercury Greay, or Octane Blue.

 

Only 1,600 Lancer Evo Final Editions will be sold at a starting cost of $37,995, so hurry on down to Larry Jay Mitsubishi and get yours before they’re gone!
