The next Mitsubishi Evo might not be based on a Lancer anymore

By Faiming_low on 27 May 2015 in New model

Attached Image The next Mitsubishi Evolution might not be based on a Lancer anymore and according to AutoExpress, its compact SUV, the ASX might carry that nameplate instead.
 
According to the publication, it quotes Mitsubishi’s UK boss, Lance Bradley, who said the move from sedan to crossover is possible and it’s one they can afford. He also said, “When you’re not making money, there are things you can’t do. When you are making money you can do things that are good for the brand, but won’t necessarily make that much money. We’re not at a point where it’ll definitely happen, but we’ve got a lot of senior management talking about it.”
 
If what he said comes true (which we hope), expect the next Evolution to feature a hybrid powertrain and of course, a huge spoiler.

Since young, Fai Ming has always centered his life around cars. In fact his first word was 'car' and not 'mum' or 'dad'. Aren't kids cute?

I HATE performance SUVs, esp the big sized ones. Really really HATE them.

not sure how the response from jdm fans is gona be like. Even Subaru stopped "Sti"ing their Forester and Exiga. I would expect Mitsubishi would make a Hatchback evo instead

There's already a Pajero Evolution, which was a homologation special for the Paris-Dakkar rally. So there's your Evo SUV. There's nothing new about this, certainly nothing "Evolution"ary. It's a step backward.

ASX EVO? Like the Pajero Evo?

This is really really really really sad. I believe I speak for all JDM fans that we would like to see something like the Evolution 9 back again..
