New Mitsubishi Evo XI may be hybrid powered

New Mitsubishi Evo XI may be hybrid powered

Rumors about a hybrid drivetrain for the next generation 2013 Mitsubishi Evo XI being surfacing last year. Now, some actual details about Mitsubishi’s latest halo car have been published. Apparently, the hybrid system of the 2013 Mitsubishi Evo XI will include an electric motor driving the front wheels and a conventional 2.0 litre petrol engine that will drive the rear wheels only when required.

It’s not clear yet if the gasoline engine of the 2013 Mitsubishi Evo XI will be turbocharged or not. But the combined hybrid powertrain of the next gen Evo should output around 350 hp and will be able to get the car from 0 to 100 km/h in around 4.5 seconds. So it won’t be slow.

The hybrid powertrain won’t be the only new tech in the Evo. Mitsubishi engineers have been working on two new vehicle systems – Active Steering and the Roll Control Suspension. Rumors say the 2013 Mitsubishi Evo XI will benefit from both systems and it will have the next generation Active Yaw Control for the rear axle.

On one hand, all this extra gear will certainly improve the overall car, but on the other hand it will add to its weight and cost.

We’ll just have to wait and see if Mitsubishi will go with the hybrid option on the next 2013 Evo XI or if it will be included in an expanded Evo model range.
