Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X

Price in India : 50 Lakhs - 52 Lakhs


The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, colloquially known as the Evo, is a high-performance sedan manufactured by Mitsubishi Motors. There have been ten official versions to date, and the designation of each model is most commonly a roman numeral. All use two liter  turbocharged engines and four-wheel drive systems. The Evolution was originally intended only for Japanese markets, but demand on the "grey import" market led the Evolution series to be offered through Ralliart dealer networks in the United Kingdom and in various European markets from around 1998. Mitsubishi decided to export the eighth generation Evolution to the United States in 2003 after witnessing the success Subaru had in that market with their long-time direct rival, the Subaru Impreza WRX STI. Japanese-spec cars were limited by a gentlemen's agreement to advertise no more than 280 PS (206 kW, 276 hp), a mark already reached by Evolution IV. Therefore, each subsequent version has unofficially evolved above the advertised power figures, with the Japanese-spec Evolution IX reaching an alleged output of around 321 PS (236 kW, 317 hp). Various versions available in other markets, particularly the UK, have official power outputs up to 411 PS (302 kW, 405 hp).
In March 2011, rumors of discontinuation of the Lancer Evolution program started when Auto Car UK's journalist Matt Prior wrote on his interview with Gayu Eusegi, Mitsubishi’s Global Product Director, and quoted him saying 'The Lancer Evolution X, Eusegi told me, will be the last Evo. “There is still a demand [for the car]” , “but we must stop”. Eyebrow up.' This created a lot of discussion on the Internet. Mitsubishi Motors would later state that "Further to some comments published in the press recently, production of the current Lancer Evolution continues as planned. As for its successor, regulations and market feedback will dictate its engineering package & architecture. Stay tuned.." Industry analysts would read the statement as indirectly hinting that the Evolution nameplate will remain, but is likely to be an environmentally friendly power train, inline with increasingly stringent emission and environmental regulations. Auto Car UK later updated its blog post, adding references to EV, further confirming what industry watchers originally speculated. Most recent news shows that Mitsubishi has been leaning towards the PX-MIEV hybrid drive train, explaining that the electric motors will act as a turbo for the Evolution. Mitsubishi claims that their more "green" version of the Evolution will be just as good or even better in the performance category. Providing a big boost to the Evolution's acceleration and handling is a highly sophisticated all-wheel-drive system that Mitsubishi calls Super All Wheel Control (S-AWC). An Active Center Differential allows for torque to be apportioned to the front or rear wheels as needed by driving conditions; the default power split is 50:50 front/rear, while up to 80 percent can be sent to other end. The GSR comes with the five-speed manual, while standard features include Recaro seats, Brembo brakes, 18-inch alloy wheels, automatic climate control, cruise control, a six-speaker, 140-watt AM/FM/CD sound system, Mitsubishi's FUSE infotainment system with Bluetooth connectivity and voice command functionality and a USB input. For better or for worse the GSR features a prominent, over sized rear spoiler. In October 2011, the President of Mitsubishi Motors, Osamu Masuko, confirmed to Auto Car that work on the next Evo will start in 2012 and will go on sale within the following three years. It is said that the car will feature electric power from a hybrid drive train, maintaining performance of 0-62 mph time under five seconds while cutting CO2 emissions.
