Mitsubishi issued a press release today to tease a new plug-in hybrid (PHEV) concept to debut at the 2016 Paris Motor Show in September. The company describes the concept as a ‘high-end SUV coupé’ based on what the automaker has been developing lately in the electric SUV segment like the crossover eX concept unveiled last year.

The Japanese automaker released the teaser picture seen above and the following short press release:

This autumn, MMC will extend that conceptual journey at the 2016 Paris Motor Show with the world premiere of the all-new “Ground Tourer Concept” high-end SUV coupé:

As such, Ground Tourer Concept is 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.
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.
It looks like Mitsubishi is betting on the success it has with the Outlander PHEV (currently over 70,000 cumulative sales). The automaker is expected to finally introduce the Outlander PHEV in the US later this year.
