Shareholders Want A New EVO But Mitsubishi Is Concentrating On EVs

With a focus on profitability, the rebirth of a Mitsubishi Evolution is unlikely

  • The promised return of Ralliart would have brought this on.

  • Mitsubishi plans to offer many new EVs by 2030.

Mitsubishi has been through tough times over the last few years, a timeline some think coincides with the demise of the flagship high-performance car. At a recent annual general shareholders meeting, calls for the EVO’s return were made.

As much as everyone would love to see a new Mitsubishi Evolution produced and sold, investing in such a vehicle makes little sense. As it stands, Mitsubishi is investing heavily in new electric vehicles.

“Electrification costs a lot of development costs, and the company is still not strong enough, [sic]” Mitsubishi Motors’ CEO and President Takao Kato said. “We had a big deficit in the previous fiscal year, so we first revived the company [sic] and then put out the cars that fans are waiting for. I want to go [back to building the Evo too].”

These final words could indicate that a future EVO might be all-electric as thought by The Drive. The next step is Ralliart’s revival with the addition of two new performance models including one SUV.
