Next-gen Mitsubishi Evolution: smaller with plugin hybrid

The next vehicle to carry the Mitsubishi Evolution nameplate would need to be smaller and make use of the company's plugin hybrid system in order to get the green light for production. Mitsubishi Motors President, Osamu Masuko, says his brand would like to create the next generation of sports cars but that it needs to meet both customer expectations and its company’s policy on sustainability and new powertrain technologies...

Mitsubishi Lancer's future undetermined

Timing surrounding the launch of the next-generation Mitsubishi Lancer remains unconfirmed with the Japanese car maker focusing its resources on SUVs, plug-in hybrids (PHEV) and electronic vehicles (EV) for the medium term. Mitsubishi's 'Roadmap of launching strategic models' leaves out the Lancer for 2014 and 2015, meaning the current-generation small sedan and hatch will be close to a decade old before a replacement is released from 2016...

Mitsubishi Lancer: next-generation model delayed until 2014

The new-generation Mitsubishi Lancer has been delayed until 2014, around two years behind schedule. Although the usual five-year Japanese model lifecycle has been used for the past three generations of Mitsubishi Lancer – the 1992 CC, 1997 CE, and 2002 CG – the current CJ series will need to serve a seven-year tenure after economic conditions forced new model development off track...

Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution gets price cuts up to $8900

The formidable Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X range has scored substantial price reductions and interior technology upgrades as part of the 2013 model year update. The Evo, as it's better known, has long struggled to keep up with the sales volume of its arch rival, the Subaru WRX STI, and while there are a number of reasons for this, the Mitsubishi's performance credentials have certainly never been one of them...

2013 Mitsubishi Lancer update

The Mitsubishi Lancer has been updated for the 2013 model year with the introduction of a new variant and multimedia interface improvements across the range. The current generation Mitsubishi Lancer has been around since 2007 and this year's changes are expected to be its last update before the next generation is released...

Mitsubishi ASX, Lancer and Outlander get ACTiV

The Mitsubishi ASX ACTiV (pictured above), limited to only 400 units, is based on the $25,990 110kW/197Nm ASX two-wheel drive but sees the addition of a body kit that includes front and rear air dams and front bumper cover as well as 17-inch alloy wheels and a chrome-tipped muffler...
