New Mitsubishi Lancer Evo

It’s no secret that Mitsubishi has joined forces with Nissan, which can only be described as a major event in both brands’ history. Although it’s still early in the two brand’s relationship, speculation is already flying. In fact, Mitsubishi Australia seems fairly confident that the merger could bring a new Mitsubishi Lancer Evo to the road.

Joint Efforts

The joint efforts of Nissan and Mitsubishi will ultimately aim to create a stronger passenger car lineup. The next-generation cars could ride on Nissan-Renault’s modular CFM architecture, a system which could save money and make a new Lancer Evo a possibility too.

Brand Benefits

The two brands will also share technology, which will make introducing new technologies into vehicles a more cost-effective process. By joining forces with Nissan, Mitsubishi lands among the top three automotive groups in the world, based on sales.

That gives the brand a lot more capital and flexibility. Considering the Lancer Evo was cut from the lineup for cost reasons, it isn’t out of the question that we could see a return in the future.

Mitsubishi confirmed that it is set to work on a new Lancer and Triton truck. Reviving a famed performance car could be a great way to set the tone for the company’s future.

We here at Don Robinson Mitsubishi hope that we’ll see a new Lancer Evo sooner rather than later!


Family in Car- Holiday Travel Tips

If you plan on traveling for the holidays, there’s a lot left to do before hitting the road or boarding the plane. Packing and checking your list twice are just a few ways to ease your mind this holiday season. Here are some useful holiday travel tips from us here at Don Robinson Mitsubishi. Enjoy the holidays!

Eat

Eating is obviously a major part of the holidays for many Americans, but don’t forego meals while traveling. Tempers are often running high and an empty stomach certainly won’t help. Make sure to grab a bite to eat, even if it’s something small, to ensure that an empty stomach doesn’t hold you up.

Earplugs

Earplugs are you best friend when it comes to screaming children and crowded planes. Blocking out noise is one way to reduce your stress level, and earplugs are one of the cheapest and most effective ways of doing just that. Don’t forget to pack a pair this holiday season! It wouldn’t be a bad idea to bring a sleep mask for the plane, either.

Breathe

Everyone is stressed out during the holidays. Simply taking a breather is a great way to keep yourself from crossing any lines during your travels. No matter what happens, try to relax and just breathe.
