The Evo X will make it’s world debut at the Tokyo Motor Show later this month. It is powered by a 2.0 liter 4-cylinder 16-valve DOHC MIVEC engine with an output of 295 hp and a peak torque of 300 lbs-ft.
Mitsubishi released the first informations about the Lancer Evolution X Group N, the WRC Rally version of the high performance 4WD sedan. The Evo X Group N will be used on the Japanese round of the FIA World Rally Championship (WRC).
Mitsubishi Motors Corporation announces today that it will launch the Lancer Evolution X high-performance 4WD sedan, newest of the company’s legendary vehicles, on October 1 at dealerships throughout Japan. Featuring a new platform, engine, and exterior and interior designs, the totally redesigned 2.0-liter model will carry a tax-inclusive price tag ranging from 2,997,750 to 3,750,600 yen. Models fitted with the Twin Clutch SST transmission are due to be launched towards the end of November.
Mitsubishi is working on two new component systems that are expected to feature in the new Lancer Evolution, due to be launched this autumn. The first one is called S-AWC (Super All Wheel Control) and is an advanced vehicle dynamics control system that regulates drive torque at each wheel. The second one is called Twin Clutch SST (Sport Shift Transmission) and is an automated manual transmission that delivers slicker shifting through the gears while freeing the driver from the need to operate the clutch.
Mitsubishi launched its most ambitious automotive project ever through the launch of its first global platform. Called the "Project Global", the project started with the unveiling of the second generation Outlander and will go on with the unveiling at Frankfurt Motor Show of the all-new 4-door Lancer Sports Sedan.
The 2008 Lancer brings the bold, dynamic lines of the show-stopping Mitsubishi Concept-X to the showroom.
The 2008 Lancer is based on a new performance-engineered global platform that also forms the foundation of the all-new Mitsubishi Outlander SUV and will underpin the next-generation high-performance Lancer Evolution model. Lancer’s comprehensive safety package provides seven standard air bags, including the first driver’s knee air bag in a Mitsubishi model.
The new-generation Lancer’s standard new 2.0-liter DOHC MIVEC 4-cylinder engine is among the most powerful standard engines in its segment, with 152 hp at 6,000 rpm (Federal Tier 2, Bin 5 emissions) and 146 lb.-ft. of peak torque at 4,250 rpm. (For California, Lancer is PZEV-certified and offers 143 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 143 lb.-ft. of peak torque at 4,250 rpm.)
Mitsubishi Motors Corporation has announced the names of two new models. The U.S.-market Lancer will be renamed "GALANT FORTIS" for the Japan domestic market. Also, Mitsubishi’s rally-inspired, high-performance 4WD sedan will carry the name "LANCER EVOLUTION X".
