Mitsubishi has put production of the Lancer Evolution X on hold, saying there's enough inventory to make it through the end of the year when the 2010 model is released. Mitsubishi spokesperson Christine Jew told KickingTires that no changes were planned for the 2009 model, but the 2010 variant would benefit from a few minor revisions. Inventory tracking through Cars.com confirms that there are plenty of Evos available (887 2008 models, to be specific), but that doesn't mean the new Evo X is a flop; sales of Mitsu's rally rocket were up over 50% in 2008.

UPDATE: We spoke with Christine from Mitsubishi about Evo production, and it's hardly a "halt." The 2009 Evo will continue to be produced for Canada and Puerto Rico, so Mitsubishi is only skipping the U.S. market for the 2009 model year. As some of you pointed out, this is primarily due to the late launch the Evo received last year. The 2010 model will go on sale this summer and will feature some "minor," undisclosed tweaks.

Seemed kinda interesting.... I guess they are going to be focusing on electric vehicles and the like. Just an FYI for anyone in the market.

I was recently at a dealership (this past weekend) test driving an MR...
The 2009's are coming to my city pretty soon, there are very few (3) 2008 GSR's left in Canada and that's what I'm trying to get my hands on (the GSR).

As far as I know for the "tweaks" for the 09' GSR it will come with projector headlights and heated seats - that's what I was told by the sales manager at Northside Mitsubishi (Edmonton, AB). Cool guy by the way, races the EVO X GSR at a local track apparently...
