Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X successor may be a 500PS hybrid

Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X successor may be a 500PS hybrid

The news of Mitsubishi pulling the plug on the Evolution series was accepted with deep grief among auto enthusiasts. The decision was part of the Japanese manufacturer to invest further in alternate sources and energy. Now there is good news (or at least partial good news) that there will be a successor to the Evo X and it is expected to follow this new philosophy.

Mitsubishi, who already have plans laid out to introduce the next generation Lancer hatchback with an optional hybrid model are testing waters with this technology. The final green signal for the car will be based on the market acceptance received for the hybrid Lancer.

The car is likely inherit a number of technology cues from the from the company’s MiEV Evolution II Pikes Peak prototype racer which featured at this year’s event. The styling though will likely be influenced by the Concept-RA that was first shown during the Detroit Motor Show five years back. The car when introduced will churn out power north of 500PS and will be a direct rival to the next Nissan GT-R which is also widely speculated to be a hybrid.

Hybrid technology is one that has recently picked up pace and has found its way even into super car manufacturers like Ferrari and McLaren. Mitsubishi also seems to have caught up on this trend and now the existence of a 400kmph muted super car does not look like a distant dream any longer.
