We've been reporting on the departure of the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution for the past year or so. But the big question of what would replace it has been up in the air. But a new report from Autocar says that a SUV would take its place, at least in spirit.
“It will not exist as we know it. It will be replaced in spirit by an SUV with high performance,” said Kanenori Okamoto, Mitsubishi's product boss.
This new SUV will apparently incorporate lessons learned from the MiEV Evolution III, which broke the EV record at Pikes Peak this year. The MiEV Evolution III will likely give a number of technologies, including its advanced Super All Wheel Control (S-AWC) system.
