Mitsubishi Ground Tourer Plug-In Hybrid SUV To Be Unveiled In Paris

Mitsubishi will be unveiling a new plug-in hybrid SUV concept — known as the “Ground Tourer Concept” high-end SUV coupé — at the upcoming 2016 Paris Motor Show, according to recent reports.

The new plug-in hybrid (PHEV) SUV concept will follow on the heels of the company’s “Concept XR PHEV II” — which was unveiled at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show — and also on the heels of the “eX Concept” — which was unveiled at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show.

Mitsubishi Ground Tourer

The new plug-in hybrid Ground Tourer Concept is, according to the press release revealing it, “meant to be the latest expression of Mitsubishi Motors’ design ambitions, expressed through four powerful elements: Augmented Possibilities, Functional Beauty, Solid Thrust and Japanese Craftsmanship.”

That’s certainly a fancy description. It’s hard to tell from the concept art that’s been revealed so far what the model will look like exactly, but one presumes that it’ll have a bit more flash to it than the company’s quite successful Outlander PHEV SUV.

The concept art has a nice sense of angularity to it, which would make for a contrast with the somewhat boxy-looking Outlander — concept art doesn’t often say much about the finished design, though, so I may well be reading too much into it.

The press release provides a bit more, noting that “applied to the upper strata of the automotive landscape and associated to Mitsubishi Motors’ plug-in hybrid electric (PHEV) flagship technology, this combination will translate into Ground Tourer Concept’s ability for effortless cruising — on and off the beaten tracks — while accommodating passengers in the hushed comfort and sleek design of its finely crafted interior.”
