It’s been over a year now since Mitsubishi canceled the Evo, and we may never see a new one again. But for better or worse, the name is about to return, in some form or another, on a new concept.
Set to be unveiled at the Tokyo Motor Show in a little over a month from now, the new e-Evolution concept won’t be an amped-up version of the Lancer sedan. Instead it will be a “low-slung, highly-aerodynamic SUV Coupé.”
It’s set to incorporate an electric all-wheel-drive powertrain “with advanced Artificial Intelligence technology,” whatever form that may take. And from this teaser image, it looks like it will be rather aggressively styled.
More than that, we couldn’t tell you just yet. But it won’t be the first time that Mitsubishi will revive the name of a discontinued sports model for a crossover, following the emergence of the Eclipse Cross earlier this year. At this rate, we’ll be watching for a 3000GT crossover to follow in the coming months as well.
