Mitsubishi: Will not build a new Lancer Evo

Although there have been reports for months that Mitsubishi was launching a new Lancer Evo, the CEO of the Japanese company, Takao Kato, stated in recent statements that a new Lancer Evo is not in the Japanese company’s plan.

According to the boss of Mitsubishi, the company must first “stand on its own two feet” and then they will consider the possibility of building the new Evo.

The company is not strong enough yet,

Kato said in response to some Mitsubishi shareholders requesting the return of the Lancer Evo to the company’s range.

Rumor has it that the new Lancer Evolution is based on the CMF-C / D F4 platform of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance, with the Evo wearing the 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine of the Renault Megane RS, which will be combined with the 7- French model automatic transmission with Mitsubishi S-AWC all-wheel drive system.

The engine would produce close to 300 horsepower, while with the addition of a mild hybrid 48V system, the total horsepower reached 345 horsepower and 435 Nm of torque.
