Evo X Is Ten Months Away

 

 

1st May, 2007

Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X study

Mitsubishi Motors Corporation has announced the Evo X, the successor to Next Car's Top Drive of 2006 (the Evo IX) will make it's international debut in September 2007 at the Frankfurt Motor Show (IAA).

An Australian release is anticipated in March 2008, at the Melbourne Motor Show.

The development concept for the all-new Lancer Evolution X1 specifies a ďnew-generation high-performance 4WD global sedan that allows all levels of driver to enjoy the carís speed and handling with ease and in safetyĒ. The new model features Mitsubishiís S-AWC2 traction and handling system, that integrates the control of drive torque and braking management with the four-wheel drive system to help realise highly responsive and intuitive handling in addition to outstanding vehicle attitude stability. Other examples of Mitsubishi Motorsí latest automotive technology to be featured in the new model include a new lightweight and high-performance 2.0-litre turbocharged MIVEC3 engine with aluminium cylinder block and a 6-speed automated manual transmission that contributes to exceptional performance with improved fuel economy. The carís performance-driven design makes the carís extreme potential clear, while cockpit design focuses the driverís attention on operating his/her machine.

Such a design focus guarantees the Evo X (the design study is pictured above) will be as highly desired as previous Evo models!


1 "X" ("Ten") stands for the tenth iteration of the Lancer Evolution released on the Japan domestic market
