Mitsubishi Lancer Evo is Dead!

In what is probably the most shocking news of the day, it looks like Mitsubishi is not going to make a new Lancer Evo after the current generation’s run is over. Mitsubishi’s global product director, Gayu Eusegi just told Autocar the sad news.

Speaking about the current Lancer Evolution X, Eusegi stated, “There is still a demand [for the car], but we must stop.” “Our influence now is EV technology.”

For now Mitsubishi is going to focus on releasing more “green” cars like electric vehicles and hybrids. The automaker plans on releasing eight EVs and hybrids by 2015.

There were rumors that the next Evo would be a hybrid, but that will not be the case.

It’s a sad day…
