The sun might be setting on the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X but a new report is indicating the company could eventually introduce a high-performance crossover.

Speaking to CarAdvice, Mitsubishi President Osamu Masuko said “Gradually the definition of an SUV is changing. So I might anticipate that the borderline between Evolution and SUV might become more overarching.” Masuko went on to say a new Lancer Evolution isn't a high priority and the next Evolution model needs to be something people would actually buy.

While Masuko didn't go into specifics, the website is reporting the next-generation Evo will be based on the new Outlander Sport / ASX which was previewed by the XR-PHEV concept.
