Final Mitsubishi Lancer Evo Goes to Auction on eBay

Final Mitsubishi Lancer Evo

Well, folks, the final Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, one of the most loved compact cars is officially off the market. The Japanese automaker brought the legendary model’s legacy to a close via an eBay auction on September 15th. All proceeds from the auction benefited Feeding America Riverside and Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County.

The final Mitsubishi Evo came in the form of the Lancer Evo X Final Edition. Only 1,600 units left the production line with the final model heading to eBay. It eventually sold for a whopping $76,400, an amount that will surely help those in need.

The Final Edition Evo was the best form of the compact car. It boasted 12 hp over the standard model as well as a five-speed manual transmission. Other standard features included Bilstein shocks, Brembo brakes, and Eibach springs.

The Final Edition model is largely considered a collectible due to the limited production run and upgraded performance features. The car itself boasts a sleek sporty design that makes this model one to remember.

As the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo drives off into the sunset, it’s good to know that the final model will help feed those in need.

We here at Coronet Mitsubishi are sad to see such an amazing car leave the production line for good.

Mitsubishi Reveals Plan to Build Only New SUV Models from Now On

Mitsubishi is set to focus hard on new SUV models.

Get ready for more SUVs and fewer sedans from Mitsubishi.

The Mitsubishi brand has long made some of the world’s greatest sedans and SUVs, but now they are turning their full attention to the latter. Despite the popularity of vehicles like the Lancer EVO, Mitsubishi’s plan is to stop all production of sedans and focus solely on building new SUV models.

“There are two reasons for that [the production changes],” said Mitsubishi president Tetsuro Aikawa, speaking at the Geneva Motor Show. “One…is because, concerning the investment on development, we’d like to concentrate on SUV, PHEVs, and EVs.” It’s hard to argue with that logic—especially when the brand new Mitsubishi Outlander is so impressive.

“The second reason,” Aikawa continued, “is because sedan…is a very high competition at the moment.” In other words, Mitsubishi is going to let other brands beat themselves up over the sedan market, while they steadily build the most impressive and extensive range of SUVs in the world. We’ll see new models, PHEV and EV capability, new features, and who knows what else.

Here at Coronet of Peru, we’re excited to see what Mitsubishi comes up with in future years in the SUV segment. For now, though, if you really want a Lancer, there are no plans to stop production of the current model—they just won’t be making a new model. So come see us today to get yours before they are gone.
