NEXT EVO not until at least 2016!

If I am reading this correctly, they will start in 2013 to design the XI which will take 3 years to hit the market. So figure at least 4 years from now AT LEAST for the next EVO. Dunno, not feeling it. Enviro focused does not sound good.

Hybrid Evo gets green light

Mitsubishi confirms cleaner, greener diesel-electric Evo XI; ready within three years








The next Mitsubishi Evo will be powered by a hybrid powertrain and will go on sale within three years, company president Osamu Masuko has confirmed to Autocar. Although Masuko did not reveal the full technical details, it is understood that the Evo XI will switch to a diesel-electric hybrid powertrain, saving it from tightening emissions regulations while preserving its trademark mid-range shove.
“We will start work on the project next year, and it will be ready within three,” said Masuko. “I have set the goal of developing a sporting car featuring electric power.”

It is hoped that the mix of diesel torque and electric motor will deliver a 0-62mph time of under five seconds, yet cut CO2 emissions to less than 200g/km.
The Evo XI will feature a revised version of the S-AWC four-wheel drive system, which integrates braking, steering and traction control.
The future of the Evo has been the subject of much debate this year. Senior management initially claimed it would be axed in favour of investing in electric vehicles, but it reversed this decision following a backlash from fans.
Masuko is believed to have made the decision after being persuaded that a halo model such as the Evo could have a positive effect on the entire Mitsubishi range, which is set to become increasingly environmentally focused.

Hoping this was posted from 2011, then maybe still on track for 2014. This may be old news?

The X will be the simple track whore, while the XI will be the DD. Oh, that sounds lovely indeed.

Evolution eventually grow on you over time, I hated the X but I own one now and love it, this is just an initial sketch of what it might look like, the production model will be much better, still it has a ton of potential looking just like this.

Put a little faith in the diesel/electric hybrid guys! Who knows, maybe Mitsubishi will figure out how to make a high revving diesel in a few years. Imagine.. a ton of low end torque from the electric motor + diesel, and turbo for power up top

Could be beast of a car.. diesel technology has come a long way as has electric
