Mitsubishi Evo XI Hybrid is on
It has been confirmed that the next Mitsubishi Evo that will go on sale in three years time is to be a hybrid.
Tech specs are still few and far between but it is believed that the Evo XI will be powered by a diesel electric hybrid engine, this is likely due to the strict emissions laws being introduced.
Mitsubishi president Osamu Masuko states:

Rumour has it that the Evo will still be able to hit 60 mph in under five seconds but it does leave people wondering if this is the end of the Evo as we know it.
I’m afraid only time will tell..
