  1. Rumor has it that Mitsubishi is working on a return of the Lancer Evolution as a high performance sedan and hatchback. The car could be one of the first results for Mitsubishi of joining the Alliance with Nissan and Renault. The new Lancer Evolution would use the alliance's modular CMF platform, shared with the next generation Renault Megane RS. Under the hood would be the powertrain from the Megane, a turbo-charged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder producing up to 341 horsepower. While the Renault would stick with front-wheel drive, the Mitsubishi would get a version of their S-AWC all-wheel drive system. As Renault is just now updating the current Megane line, any Mitsubishi Evo that comes from it is still years away and yet to be green-lighted. So don't hold your breath just yet.

  3. There will be one less compact car on sale come August. Motor1 has learned from Mitsubishi Motors North America’s executive vice president and chief operating officer, Don Swearingen that production of the Lancer compact sedan will end this August. Of course. you are probably saying to yourself that Mitsubishi was still building the Lancer?! The answer is yes. Will Mitsubishi have a replacement for the Lancer, especially considering the partnership with Nissan? Swearingen said no. He told Autoblog that the sedan marketplace is shrinking and the Japanese needs to focus on products that make them money. Hence why they are focusing on crossovers with a new model that is slated to slot between the Outlander Sport and Outlander due later this year. The Lancer was never a big seller for Mitsubishi. Its best year was back in 2002 when the company moved 69,000 Lancers. In 2016, Mitsubishi only sold 14,304 Lancers. Source: Motor1, Autoblog

  5. Mitsubishi hasn't had the best of luck of trying to find a partner. Back in February, we learned that talks between it and Renault had fallen apart for a new midsize sedan. Mitsubishi shelved those plans and reportedly began talks with Nissan. We also learned that Mitsubishi moved up the replacement for the Lancer. Now Mitsubishi has begun working on the Lancer replacement in-house while it still looks for a partner. “We are talking with a potential partner at this time, (but) at the same time we’re doing an internal design of the vehicle. We’re running parallel because we cannot wait any longer to see if a partnership will work out. If it falls through then we’re another year behind,” said Don Swearingen, executive vice president of Mitsubishi Motors North America to Wards Auto. Swearingen confirmed that Mitsubishi is still in talks with an automaker - many believe to be Nissan. Even if a deal is reached, Swearingen says the model is still 18 to 2 years out. Additionally, Swearingen confirmed the a midsize sedan from Mitsubishi isn't happening. “We’ve made the decision that D-segment will not work for us in the U.S. When you do the financial analysis and you look at the amount of money (needed) for advertising (and the amount) most of our competitors are spending on incentives, it doesn’t pencil out to do a partnership.” Source: Wards Auto

  7. William Maley Staff Writer - CheersandGears.com November 25, 2013 The rumors of what will be happening with the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution have been flying for the past few years. They have ranged from the model being killed off to morphing into a hybrid model. One thing is for certain, it's going to be awhile before we see a new Lancer Evolution. CarAdvice had the chance to talk with Mitsubishi managing director of product projects and strategy Ryugo Nakao. Nakao said for the time being, the company is putting the development of the next-generation model on hold to focus more on SUVs, EVs, and plug-in hybrid vehicles. “We cannot do both environmental protection and [internal combustion-engine-only] sports car at the same time, it will take time for us to make it possible. So concentrate on PHEV and EV first, then based on this development, we will like to support the next-generation of sports car if possible,” said Nakao. When asked if the Lancer Evolution would be going away, Nakao said that has yet to be decided. “It all depends on customer demand of course. In terms of volume, Evolution X is not a big volume seller.” Source: CarAdvice.com.au William Maley is a staff writer for Cheers & Gears.
