Mitsubishi has revealed several more teaser images for its upcoming e-Volution Concept, due to make a formal debut at the Tokyo Motor Show.
As promised, the Evo badge has been reimagined for a high-riding electrified crossover. Previous reports point to a plug-in hybrid setup rather than a pure battery-powered EV.
"This very high performance automobile will blend Mitsubishi Motors' signature 4WD and electric powertrain know-how with advanced Artificial Intelligence technology under a low slung aerodynamic SUV Coupe shape," the company promises.
A Mitsubishi executive recently said a new performance model is not expected to arrive for at least three to six years. It is unclear if the automaker plans to launch a more modest hybrid crossover in the meantime, paving way for the long-term arrival of a high-performance package reviving the storied Evo brand.
Previous executive comments should be taken with a grain of salt, as Mitsubishi is now under new leadership as a member of the Renault-Nissan Alliance.
