It’s official – Mitsubishi Lancer Evo will not get a successor

Mitsubishi will not be developing a successor of the current Lancer Evolution X and current model will be sold until the stock will run out.

One of the most impressive high performance sedans out there and a legend in the world of rallying, the main rival of the Subaru STI, the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo, will be discontinued as the current generation will not be receiving a replacement. The announcement has been made officially by the car manufacturer after a report appeared a few days ago, stating that the company will pull the plug on the Evo.

“Mitsubishi Motors does not have any plans to design a successor with the current concept such as a high-performance four-wheel-drive gasoline-powered sedan. Mitsubishi Motors will explore the possibilities of high-performance models that incorporate electric vehicle technology. Moving forward, the technology honed in the Lancer Evolution model will continue to be advanced and proactively incorporated into future models” said the company in its official press release.

The current generation of the Mitsubishi Evolution, the “X”, will be still sold until the stock will run out but the company isn’t sure when this will happen. The Lancer Evolution has been in production since 1992, when the first generation was introduced. The tenth version of the model has been assembled since 2007 and it has a 2.0 liter turbocharged unit under its hood, producing 276 HP (206 kW) and 422 Nm (311 lb-ft) of torque. The engine is connected to a 6-speed twin clutch transmission or to a 5-speed manual. The 0 to 100 km/h sprint takes 4.7 seconds.
