Mit­subishi’s orig­i­nal Evo­lu­tion was a mo­tor­ing icon – a su­per­car slayer for a pint-sized price. It was ba­si­cally a 4WD rally car, ever-so-slightly de­tuned for the road. And it got even bet­ter through­out its 10-it­er­a­tion ten­ure, un­til pro­duc­tion ended in 2016. But the leg­end is back, or at least it looks that way, with Mit­subishi’s an­nounce­ment of the e-Evo­lu­tion con­cept. The ‘e’ stands, un­sur­pris­ingly, for elec­tric, high­light­ing the mar­que’s am­bi­tion not only to up its range of elec­tric ve­hi­cles, but to ex­pand them into the per­for­mance sec­tor – an area nor­mally re­served for fos­sil-fuel-lov­ing ma­chines or hy­brid su­per­cars. The e-Evo­lu­tion will fea­ture 4WD and a triple elec­tric mo­tor, which will de­liver huge amounts of power and torque to each wheel. A sin­gle mo­tor will drive the front wheels, and a dual mo­tor the rears. Most im­pres­sive is the on-board AI sys­tem, de­signed to make you a bet­ter driver. Fi­nally, you’ll be able to say you’re as good as Tommi Mäki­nen.
