Mitsubishi to end production of the Lancer compact sedan in August

If you are planning to purchase a new Mitsubishi Lancer in the next few years, be warned that production will end soon so you better act now. This is because Mitsubishi is saying goodbye to its beloved sedan, which has been its staple offering since 1973.

Incredibly, Mitsubishi has been quite silent about its plans for the Lancer compact sedan. It was only early this year that people were informed that the Lancer would follow the tracks of its performance-laden version – the Lancer Evolution – to the scrap yard. Yes, Mitsubishi is finally ending the production of one of the most beloved nameplates in the automotive world in August of this year, as confirmed by Don Swearingen, Mitsubishi Motors North America’s executive vice president and chief operating officer. Worse, the Japanese carmaker doesn’t have any plans to build a replacement – immediate or non-immediate – for the Lancer compact sedan.

Mitsubishi’s decision to end production wasn’t because of qualms. Likewise, don’t even blame Nissan – yes, Mitsubishi’s new owner – for the pending demise of the Lancer. After all, Mitsubishi has decided to axe the Lancer even before the deal to become part of the Nissan group was signed and finalized. If you have something to blame, it should the dropping demand for the Lancer.

We have bad news for fans of the Lancer Evolution AWD high-performance sedan as Mitsubishi will end production of the current generation. And the bad news continue because Mitsubishi is not planning a successor for the Lancer Evolution. For those who don’t remember, the first Lancer Evolution made its debut back in 1992 and the latest version was revealed back in 2007.

According to spokeswoman Namie Koketsu, Mitsubishi doesn’t have any plant to design a successor to the current Lancer Evolution but will explore the possibilities of high-performance models that incorporate electric vehicle technology. Apparently, this move is made as a result to the fact that the Japanese carmaker wants to focus on utility vehicles but also on electric cars.

For most of us, not seeing a Lancer Evolution successor is not quite a surprise because last fall, President Osamu Masuko revealed Mitsubishi’s new mid-term business plan that would deprioritize in-house sedans. Osamu Masuko admitted that the big sales will come from pickups, crossovers and SUVs. Mitsubishi needs to go back to basics and follow volume cars.

As you may know already, it’s been a while since we didn’t hear something regarding the next-generation Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution but it appears that the Japanese sports car is not in cryogenic freeze. According to MotorTrend, the next-gen Lancer Evo will be completely different and will take another direction. In fact, it will be so different from the 10 versions of Evos you know that it will probably get a new name. Moreover, the new Evo will be a hybrid sports car, a fusion of "uncompromised handling with state-of-the-art plug-in hybrid EV technology". As a result, it will employ a unique platform. The big surprise is the engine, as Mitsubishi is currently evaluating an enhanced version of the 1.1-liter three-cylinder turbocharged engine rated at 135 hp that was unveiled on the XR-PHEV Concept at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show.

According to an unnamed source, the engine generates at least 35 percent more power than any comparably sized engine. Furthermore, the next-generation Evo will be all-wheel-drive but not a “standard” one. MotorTrend says that it will employ motors front and rear, while the battery pack will be slotted under the rear seat, in order to produce a perfect 50/50 weight distribution.

With the electric motors integrated in the front and rear, the next-generation S-AWC will achieve handling capabilities that will surpass any previous Evo. Although we don’t know the name of the new car, we don’t even care, we just want to see how it performs on the road. We expect to see a sports car that will rival any competitor in terms of performance, fuel efficiency and handling.

Mitsubishi’s 2013 model year Lancer SE AWC will be getting minor revisions. It will come with a fuel-efficient 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine that can deliver 168-hp and 167 lb-ft of torque. The SE AWC trim will also be available with a new Thule plug-in roof carrier accommodation that’s highly convenient, a set of new 16-inch five-spoke wheels, and a new Premium Package that’s worth $1,550.

Otherwise, Mitsubishi has kept the Lancer lineup’s new model year mostly unchanged. The package includes a power glass sunroof, Rockford Fosgate audio system with SiriusXM satellite radio, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, high-contrast meter with color LCD MID, and soft-touch door trim with a chrome lever.

Those who want a Lancer model that’s more affordable can go for either the 2.0L DE or the 2.0L ES model. The Lancer GT will use the same 2.4-liter installed in the SE AWC model. What performance fans are sure to like is the range-topping Ralliart model that is offered with 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder, capable of 237-hp and 253 lb-ft of torque.

The ongoing global crisis has hit rally racing the hardest of all the major motorsports, but this doesn't mean that it is out of the game. Unveiled today by MML Sports is the Group N Mitsubishi Evolution X rally car set to compete in the World Rally Championship Production category.

According to the firm the creation of the MML Evo X was, in varied ways, an experiment because not many of the essential upgrade and modification elements are offered in the aftermarket since the Evo X is fairly new.

This points to the fact that much of the car is individually made by MML in-house, including the fuel tank and roll cage. According to the specifications of the Group N, the 4B11 powerplant and regular suspension setup remain untouched. However, springs and dampers were upgraded together with BOS dampers.

The Lancer Evolution X, which debuted last year has met with some resounding success and has gained popular acceptance from both customers and media. After having undergone wide-ranging testing, the UK branch of Mitsubishi Motors has come up with a new addition to its already outstanding lineup: the much anticipated FQ-330 SST.

Improved power output for the FQ-330 SST model comes from a breathing kit and a remapped ECU and a six month testing to reach the desired result. Both the acceleration and drive of the vehicle are enhanced though the power upgrade.

The 329bhp power output is reached by the inclusion of a high performance exhaust and downpipe, an intercooler piping kit, racing suction pipe, and an upgraded CAT which brings in an extra 36bhp and 22lb-ft of torque when coupled to the advanced 6-speed Twin-Clutch Sports Shift Transmission.

The wraps of the latest FQ-400 intended for the markets of the United Kingdom was removed today by Mitsubishi. It can manage a sprint from 0-62mph in just 3.8 seconds putting it on the level of the likes of the Nissan GT-R and Lamborghini Gallardo among others including those that have a sticker price as much as ten time that of the improved Evo X.

This is where the 2009 Evolution X gets its appeal. For its smaller sticker price one gets a four-door utility vehicle equipped with the performance of a supercar. The FQ-330 SST version was launched just last week with a bit less lavishness.

Considered as the fastest and most extreme variant of Mitsubishi's motorsport-inspired vehicle, the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X FQ-400 comes with 403hp and 387ft-lb of top torque generated by its high-tech, lightweight aluminum 2.0 liter turbocharged Mitsubishi Innovative Valve Timing Electronic Control (MIVEC) gasoline powerplant.

Mitsubishi plans to do a major overhaul of its Lancer Evolution by making a diesel hybrid as its next incarnation. Switching the drivetrain can be designed to save the Evo from stiffer economy and emissions standards while maintaining its trademark mid-range shove. Reports say that Mitsubishi is seriously thinking about ending the Evo model altogether.

Last month, sources in Japan said that a project to switch to a petrol hybrid powertrain and base it on the PX-MiEV SUV concept's platform was dead.

But very recently, the carmaker's R&D department was granted approval to instead design the car as a diesel hybrid.

The 2010 Mitsubishi Lancer has been chosen as the Top Safety Pick Award for the year due to its good rating for rollover protection. This award marks the first time that a Mitsubishi vehicle gets the recognition since the rollover test was launched.

For the year 2010, this test was deemed to measure the strength of the roof of a vehicle by pushing a metal plate against one corner of a vehicle's roof at a constant speed.

This maximum force that the roof can take before 5 inches of crush is compared to the vehicle's weight to establish the strength to weight ratio.
