Diesel variants coming for next gen Subaru STi and Mitsubishi EVO

Japanese car manufacturers Subaru and Mitsubishi are planning to introduce diesel options for their STi and EVO models.

The story about the move of Mitsubishi has some odd details behind it with rumors that the carmaker planned to scrap the Lancer EVO model while there are also rumors that it will no longer release petrol variants of the Evolution but instead focus on a diesel-electric hybrid.

If Mitsubishi is really planning to make an EVO which is a diesel-only or a diesel-eletric hybrid, this will keep the car from mainstream competition of motor-sport. The move will also make it hard to push it in the markets of Japan and the United States. One good news though will be keeping its carbon dioxide emission down the line of 200 grams per kilometer.

2010 Mitsubishi i MiEV: What Is It?

0811_27_z2010_mitsubishi_i_mievfront_three_quarter_viewDo you think that America is finally ready for the very first electric city car?  Well, no matter if you think that we are or not, Mitsubishi thinks that we are and that is one of the main reasons why they have come up with the Mitsubishi I MiEV car!  This incredible car actually premiered earlier this year at the New York auto show and while it might be a Japanese-made car, it is actually completely electric and there is no gas needed for this car.

Are you curious as to how it works?  Well, it actually runs on lithium-ion batteries, which in total weighs about 450 pounds and they are attached beneath the rear seats.  You charge this car in the trunk area and to be honest, this car is going to be one hot car as soon as the concept is totally improved and all of the tweaks are worked out.

The Mitsubishi I MiEV is near silent and while it might not be a sports car, I have to say that the fact it can get up to 35 miles per hour, that is incredible!
