Las Vegas, Nevada – Mitsubishi Motors North America is showing its new Evolander concept vehicle, a performance version of the new 2007 Outlander compact SUV, at the 2006 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show. As well, Mitsubishi’s display includes the off-road race-ready Baja Raider truck, the Feast Audio “i” minicar, the LOUD-lander by Rockford Fosgate and several new Special Edition models.
“The Evolander builds upon the reputation that the Lancer Evolution sedan has built among tuners and car enthusiasts. Like the Evo, the Evolander boasts a forced induction engine, electronic all-wheel drive, and a tuned suspension that deliver on its Evo-ness,” said Dan Sims, managing director of Mitsubishi Research and Design America. “A vehicle like Evolander, which blends Evolution-style design cues and sport SUV themes, might help inspire tuners to apply their wares to the compact SUV segment.”
