Lancer Evo skipped for 2009
If someone tries to see you a 2009 Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X, make sure they’ll take your unicorn in trade. Mitsubishi announced that since there are still plenty of Lancer Evolutions from the 2008 model year still available, there will be no 2009 model.
According to Mitsubishi spokeswomen Christine Jew, there were no changes planned for a 2009 Evo, and there is enough inventory to last until the 2010 model is released later this year. This is also not yet a sign that the Evo is in danger. Mitsubishi says the model’s sales were up 50.9% for 2008.
