Mitsubishi pulls the plug on the Lancer Evolution X, no successor planned

Mitsubishi will be ceasing the production of the current Lancer Evolution X, towards the end of this year, and no successor will be developed for the model in question.

Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution has been a rival for the Subaru WRX STI ever since it hit the market first back in 1992 and it seems that the model’s current generation will also be the last one. According to the guys at leftlanenews.com, the Lancer Evo X will leave the production line at the end of this year. The vehicle will not be getting a successor as Mitsubishi wants to reinvent itself and to produce eco-friendly vehicles and the Evo doesn’t fit in the description.

The most insane road-going Mitsubishi Lancer Evo ever to be offered is the Evolution X FQ-440 MR, which is a limited production version of the model. This has been recently unveiled and it’s limited to just 40 units in the UK market. The model has an impressive 440 HP (328 kW) and 558 Nm (412 lb-ft), delivered from the 2.0 liter supercharged four-cylinder engine. Prices for each one have been set at 50,000 GBP and they are available exclusively in the United Kingdom.
