Report: Mitsubishi to discontinue EVO X from the UK market

Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X

According to a report by AutoCar, the Mitsubishi EVO X will be cut from the UK market once the last 10 remaining units have been sold.

Mitsubishi UK has now ceased imports of the sport version of the Lancer. Reports suggest that the company tried looking for ways to keep the car on sale but with no profit margin, they couldn’t make a business case.

“We used to sell the Evo for £30k; now we would have to charge £60k,” said Lance Bradley, Mitsubishi UK’s managing director.

Bradley said that Mitsubishi UK is now trying to become involved in the development of the EVO X’s successor. He said that the model is still important for the UK market. In its peak year, Mitsubishi UK sold 1,400 units of the EVO X.
