Tokyo, March 2, 2005 — Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) today announced that the
Lancer Evolution IX high-performance 4WD sports sedan would go on sale at affiliated
dealerships throughout Japan on March 3, 2005. With a 2.0-liter intercooler-turbocharged
engine powering all four wheels through an electronically controlled 4WD system, Evolution IX
raises all dynamic performance parameters to a new level. Tax inclusive prices range from
2,940,000 yen to 3,570,000 yen.

Evolution IX marks the 12th model in the series, which has also included an automatic
transmission model, since the Lancer Evolution debuted in October 1992. Major features
distinguishing the latest model include the adoption of Mitsubishi's proprietary MIVEC *1
variable valve timing technology in the intake system and improvements to the turbocharger that
result in higher torque and produce better response for improved engine performance across its
full rev range. New front and rear bumpers bring both high aerodynamics and cooling

Evolution IX is offered in three trim levels. The flagship GSR grade features Mitsubishi Motors'
cutting-edge ACD *2 + Super AYC *3 + Sports ABS *4 electronically controlled all-wheel
control component system and a 6-speed manual gearbox. The motorsport-specification RS
uses a special lightweight body, a new titanium-magnesium turbocharger, 5-speed gearbox and
ACD + mechanical rear LSD all-wheel control. New for Evolution IX is the GT grade that
brings together RS's turbocharger and drivetrain specification and GSR's comfort-bias body
with its enhanced sound deadening. Allowing owners to customize their Evolution IX's to
individual needs and preferences, a comprehensive range of factory- and dealer-fitted options
as well as Ralliart tuning and dress up parts are available.
