Information about Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution

The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, colloquially known as the Lancer Evo or Evo, is a car 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 of them share a two litre, turbocharged engine and four-wheel drive system. Evolution models prior to version VII were the homologation models for Mitsubishi's efforts in the World Rally Championship. In order to follow these rules, the Evolution was based on the same unibody as the Lancer.

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 (23 years ago). Mitsubishi decided to export the eighth generation Evolution to the United States in 2003 (18 years ago) after witnessing the success Subaru had in that market with their Impreza WRX, a direct competitor in other global regions.

Japanese-spec cars were limited by a gentleman's agreement to advertise no more than 276 hp (205 kW), a self imposed limit, 280 hp (210 kW) by the state, 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 a real power output of around 321 PS (317 hp/236 kW). Various versions available in other markets, particularly the UK, have official power outputs up to 405 bhp (302 kW).

In 2008 (13 years ago), the latest generation Lancer Evolution X was launched worldwide, and featured an all-new 291 hp (217 kW) inline four-cylinder turbocharged engine and a full-time all wheel drive powertrain.


In Canada Lancer Evolution X is named Best Performance Car under $50K by Motoring 2009 (12 years ago), It won AJAC's 2009 (12 years ago) Best New Technology Award and in 2008 (13 years ago) earned IIHS Top Safety Pick. During 2009 (12 years ago) New York International Auto Show Lancer Evolution X is Announced as one of the top 10 World Performance Car of the Year.. Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution won Automotive Excellence Awards 2008 (13 years ago) "Fun to Drive" and It took Dave TV’s “2008 Sports Car of the Year” award. The 2006 (15 years ago) Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution won ConsumerSearch's best Aggressive sports sedan in Best Sports Sedans in Jun. 2006 (15 years ago). During 2004–2005 alone it won six major awards, being declared "Sports Car of the Year" in Scotland and France, "Playboy Sports Car 2004" in Poland, "Best New Production Car Under €60,000" in Greece, "Sport Compact Car of the Year" in 2004 (17 years ago) and 2005 (16 years ago) (Sport Compact Car magazine) and "2005 All-Star" (Automobile magazine) in the United States and Motor magazine's Best "Bang for Your Bucks" in Australia.
