Mitsubishi Evolution name to be revived for e-Evolution concept
Four-wheel drive SUV coupé signposts the brand’s future under Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi
Mitsubishi has previewed a rakish new concept ahead of its unveiling at the Tokyo motor show next month.
Although not confirmed for production, Mitsubishi revealed that the car will signpost the brand’s future direction – likely in both styling and powertrains, as well as artificial intelligence, suggesting a high level of autonomy.
Mitsubishi describes the concept as a flagship, suggesting that the e-Evolution will sit atop the brand’s range should it enter production.
It’s the first car to bear Mitsubishi’s Evolution moniker since the last Lancer Evolution Final Edition was sold in non-UK markets in 2015.
The concept will usher in a new chapter for the company, which celebrates its centenary this year, and looks to return Mitsubishi to growth and sustainable development.
