Mitsubishi Lancer EVO X: It will remain, but ...
Very recently, the Japanese automaker announced that its Mitsubishi Eclipse sports and Endeavor SUV would be removed from its catalog after the 2011 model year. The intermediate sedan, the Mitsubishi Galant is already gone.
This means that effective immediately, all existing or future models will be developed under one and the same platform, that of Lancer models. A platform that already permit the manufacturer to recover and become profitable.
So it is more than the models:
Lancer sedan, SE and GT
Lancer Sportback SE and GT
Lancer Ralliart sedan and Sportback
Lancer Evolution GSR and MR
Outlander ES (2WD) and (4WD)
Outlander LS (4WD)
Outlander XLS (S-AWC)
RVR ES and SE (2WD)
RVR SE and GT (4WD)
i-MiEV electric (coming soon)
However, it does not take much to see lady Rumor pointing his long nose into this issue and spread the news that the lightning Mitsubishi Lancer EVO would also have to take his reverence.
But if we trust in the replica of a senior manager of the company wanting to remain anonymous, it seems that the EVO X will not be the last Evolution of the rally champion, but that could change his vocation radical way.
The current model is still for at least the next two years and the next version could be less boorish equally efficient and more environmentally friendly.
Lancer EVO XI hybrid?
In 2005, the company had developed a fully electric version of its lightning EVO IX. The latter, had four electric motors associated has a lithium-ion which were issuing a total power of 268 hp and an impressive torque above 1,528 lb-ft. Autonomy could reach 250 km and its top speed was around 180 km / h.
But back both feet on the ground. It would make more sense to develop a hybrid version of the EVO that would be much more easier to find a buyer or discover a new clientele was ready to pay the price to ride "a flat out", while being much more respectful of the environment.
That is still a great story to follow ...
