    Default Mitsubishi Canada's April Fools Prank



    Behold the future of the Mitsubishi EVO. April Fools!

    Looking surprisingly cool, the folks at Mitsubishi Canada have perhaps the best April Fools prank of the day, posting a creatively photoshopped version of the i-MiEV electric car, inspired by the brandís Evo sports sedan, on its Facebook page.

    Claiming to be the 2015 i-MiEVO concept, the car is powered by an electric motor with 350-hp and 590 lb-ft of torque. Weighing under 2,500 lbs the car would be a rocketship Ė if it was real. Oh, and letís not forget the obligatory Super All-Wheel Control AWD system.

    Damn, they should just make something like this for some coverage, Even if it was super expensive...

    Take this car, reinforce, make it look like above except take out the back seats and put the 4B11T in the back w/ all wheel drive. It could make its run of auto TV shows, people would drool, then because they cant afford it but secretly want one they will go out and buy the normal econobox version and put some wheels on it...

    Car companies arent fun anymore like they used to be.

    Sadly not far from the truth, they canned the EVO in order to concentrate on green and EV cars...

    After the complaints, they decided to keep the evo

    A few weeks ago, in a discussion with Mitsubishi global product director Gayu Eusegi, Autocar reported him saying that the current Lancer Evolution X would be the last of the Evos, thus allowing Mitsubishi to concentrate on building EVs and other fuel-efficient vehicles. However, after much backlash from enthusiasts in the form of numerous Facebook groups and petitions, Mitsubishi President and CEO Osamu Masuko has announced that the Evo X would not, in fact, be the last of the Evolutions.
    “Production of the current Lancer Evolution X continues as planned,” he told Autocar, “As for its successor, regulations and market feedback will dictate its engineering package and architecture.” There’s nothing new there as it was previously stated that the current Evo X was supposed to stick around at least another year, until 2012.
    However, Masuko continued on to say, “As the market’s needs and demands change, Mitsubishi is considering not advancing the Lancer Evolution concept in the same way as before, but to find a different direction for the Lancer Evolution model to evolve.”
    What does that mean exactly?
    The rumor has long been that the Evo XI would be a diesel-electric hybrid. Such a powertrain would allow the Evo XI to hustle to 0-60 MPH in under 5 seconds while still receiving better fuel economy than the current Evo. At this stage, anything can happen. Masuko concluded the interview by saying, "The new direction, the technologies involved, and corresponding products will be disclosed in due course."
