The Mitsubishi Evo Is Making An Electric Comeback

Since the release of the final edition of the Lancer Evolution X, the infamous ‘Evo’ line from Mitsubishi has had an unknown future.

In a strategic, forward-thinking move, the Japanese automotive outfit have announced they’re taking the path of an electric coupé-SUV as opposed to a Lancer sedan. An additional ‘e’ will be added in front of the Evolution offshoot, which will boast an electric AWD powertrain “with advanced Artificial Intelligence technology.”

October/November’s Tokyo Motor Show will host the official rebirth of the now e-Evolution line. Be sure to stay tuned for updates and let us know your thoughts on the radical direction for the iconic brand.
