A new report from Motor Trend says the next Lancer Evolution will be much different than the one we currently have.
The report says that Mitsubishi is working on a new plug-in hybrid drivetrain and platform that will consist of electric motors in the front and back for the all-wheel drive system, a battery pack mounted under the rear seats, and a gas engine. Sources close to project say engineers are considering a 1.1L inline-three turbocharged engine with 135 horsepower.
Because of this new platform, Mitsubishi is considering changing the name for the next Lancer Evolution.
