Mitsubishi teases new PHEV concept for Paris Motorshow

Frankly there is little to comment on this vehicle as so little is known.  Named the Ground Tourer Concept, it is due to be revealed at this Paris Motorshow in October.

The teaser photo below shows a heavily computer generated outline of a 5 door SUV with hints of Land Rover’s Evoque with his floating roofline. Details provided by Mitsubishi are limited to fluffy marketing messaging. The car will continue what the Outlander PHEV started, bringing plug-in hybrids to the masses, the success of which is undeniable.

Nissan recently purchased a significant stake in Mitsubishi following a fuel economy rigging scandal.  It is too soon for Nissan‘s influence to be seen Mitsubishi products, however rumours of an all-electric SUV seem to be growing.
