The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X is the successor to the Evolution IX and is the final non-hybrid model in the Mitsubishi Evolution range.

Production started in 2007 and ceased with the production of a Final Edition variant in 2015.

The Evolution X introduced a full-time S-AWC AWD system that enables regulation of braking and torque force at each wheel of the car. The system also controls driving manoeuvres as required and confers torque to the wheels that have the best grip for example.

Games

Need for Speed: ProStreet

The Evolution X appears in Need for Speed: ProStreet as a tier 3 car with a price tag of $33,000. It can be acquired upon domination of the Showdown: Chicago race day.

It is a competitive contender for Grip, since the Evolution X only needs 4.5 seconds to go from 0-60mph and has great stability. The stability of the vehicle is also beneficial to its handling, which is precise at any speed. The Evolution X performs well in Speed Challenge as well due to a high top speed and the aforementioned handling.

Need for Speed: Undercover

The Evolution X appears in Need for Speed: Undercover as a Tier 3 car with a price tag of $120,000. It is unlocked upon reaching Wheelman Level 9.5.

The Evolution X can drive up to 202 mph (326 km/h), making it the second fastest Tier 3 car in terms of top speed, as the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX has a slightly higher maximum speed. In comparison to the Evolution IX, the Evolution X has a moderate acceleration and less responsive handling.

Need for Speed: Shift

The Evolution X appears in Need for Speed: Shift as a tier 2 car with a $55,000 price tag. The player has to collect 30 Stars to unlock the car, which is capable of a Works conversion and featured with a 5.40 car rating.

The Evolution X by default has decent top speed and acceleration. Handling is its best trait due to its all-wheel drive system. Once equipped with a Works conversion kit, it becomes a very responsive car with powerful acceleration. The Subaru Impreza WRX STI is faster but has less precise handling.

Need for Speed: Nitro

The Evolution X appears in the Nintendo DS release of Need for Speed: Nitro as a class B car.

Need for Speed: World

The Evolution X was made available in Need for Speed: World on September 28, 2010 as a tier 2 car. Since August 22, 2012, as a class C car.

The Evolution X is a considerably better performing vehicle than its predecessors. Its handling is suitable for turning quickly in wide corners although it is prone to understeer when the entry speed is too high. Acceleration is up to par with the Lotus Elise. Its nitrous boost is too weak to outperform other vehicles at the start of a race.

Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (2010)

The Evolution X appears in Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (2010) as a Sports Series racer vehicle, and as an SCPD Traffic Patrol unit.

The racer vehicle is unlocked upon the player earning a total of 15,000 racer bounty. The SCPD unit is unlocked upon the player earning a total of 138,750 cop bounty.

The car has average acceleration and top speed, but stands out with its tremendous cornering capabilities compared to other Sports/Traffic Police vehicles, in how much speed it is able to retain. That said, re-centering the car can sometimes prove difficult, especially with novice drivers.

Players therefore may find acceleration improving mods such as Short Gears and Lightweight Chassis to be effective on the vehicle.
