I highly doubt that. The added cost for hybrid drive system would simply cost far to much for the current average Evolution customer.

see the thing is money talks. if any of us were the ceo of mitsu and if i compare the amount of mitsubishi fusos to the amount of evos i see running around i wouldn't hestitate to kill off the evo either. the evo just aint selling for some mysterious reason even though time after time the evo and sti are compared, the evo is faster around a track.


Mitsubishi never anticipated the Evolution to be their bread winner. The evolution is targeted to a specific type of client. The evolutions biggest goal is to spread brand awareness and improve brand image. How many lower spec lancers do you Mitsubishi had sold because of the Evolution?

i think this is where they made their mistake. even with such a good car, they failed at spreading awareness. they should of went crazy with advertising the evo as well as sponsor every guy with decent driving skills so that the evo is seen on tv and the streets. every time i see a mitsu commercial, they never show the evo. subaru rarely (or never. i have no clue) does commercials for their sti's either but they sell well because they are always on tv and guys like ken block are given one to fuck around with. mitsu needs to tell the world that this car exists instead of doing commercials for their suv.


Mitsubishi does not need to advertise the Evolution. The Evolution is a enthusiast car plain and simple. Every true enthusiast knows the Evolution exist and realizes the cars capabilities and potential. This is the same reason why manufacturers never offer year end sales on flagship performance models because price isn't the main selling point for these types of clients. They over market everyday type vehicles because of the intense competition for market share from other manufactures. Honestly I'm in shock they are canceling the Evolution X. I cannot imaging how much money went into R&D to develop the new chassis.

Wasn't this just a rumor or has it now been confirmed for real?

Lets be honest though the Evo IX was the last raw platform they had created. The X was a more refined and less aggressive platform. Not to mention they were poorly built. For the amount of money you were spending on them they didn't show it in the quality. I will admit they are better than STi's but they lost when they debuted the X. Atleast in earlier gens there was a noticable difference between the Evo and the Lancer nowadays they basically look the same with few differences. Mitsu knew that they didn't want to be apart of the enthusiast crowd and they want to market to a different crowd. They pretty much scrapped all their other sport lines so it was just a matter of time before the Evo would be next on the chopping block...

How so? These cars are priced around mid 30s and keep up with cars priced tens of thousands more. These cars have extremely sophisticated technology which is very expensive to develop.

wtf a new evo starts at 42k, sti @ 38

Would you rather buy a fully loaded evo @ 54k or a 335i/S4? Interior of an evo is nothing special

Considering none of Mitsubishi's current lineup (minus the Evo) can really keep up with the competition, this isn't really surprising. The entire brand is performing poorly in the US and when Mitsu killed off the WRC team, one could only assume that the Evo would be on the chopping block soon after.

The STi and Evo interior isn't bad. I personally do not buy performance cars because of the interior.

STIs will become more expensive if this is true... STIs are a poor mans EVO. The reason it is priced lower is to make it more appealing to the customer but if the EVO is no more, Subaru will have the luxury of increasing their price.
