Whatever hybrid they produce and badge it "Evo", the true Evo died for me after Evo 9 went off production.

It's not a horrible idea but i still don't see a diesel-Electric-hybrid Evo as anything other than an option (maybe for the European market) Mitsubishi wouldn't shoot themselves in the foot like that, after-all they're looking to sell as many cars as possible.

It's inevitable. Be ready to "smoke" the competition.

Hey, Mitsubishi were going to axe the Evo altogether, but we (well, a group of people) convinced them to keep it going, despite rumours of a hybrid Evo already circulating. What happens next is on us (well, "them").

A friend of mine just bought a MB GL diesel. The engine sounds like a gasoline type, the exhaust does not smell like diesel and the performance is outstanding without the sound of a pop corn machine. Literally, I could not tell it was a diesel!

I don't see how a diesel 4-pot can sound racy, but I'm glad Mitsubishi still is going to have a flagship peformance car.

Death of a legend or the dawn of a new 'error'? With the motor industry moving towards diesel 'sports' cars, this Evo strategy may not be a bad thing but will have to see the final product. Will 'petrolheads' need to change their names...?

They are so behind Nissan GTR. Very ugly, as usual.

First they put the Eclipse out of its tragic misery, then they try to feed us some pipe-dream about the Evo rising out of the ashes as some tarted-up drag queen version of its former self. Mitsubishi is so done.

I think diesel hybrid is the way to go. I wish they would do the same for the SUV market especially as a plug in. The Big 3 always stated their profit margins were the best for SUVs so there is room for a diesel hybrid plug in SUV)(Take a pickup, enclose the back, throw a third seat in and charge at least another $15000
