PHEV will debut at Paris Motor Show.

The 2016 auto show circuit has barely wrapped up but we’re already getting a first hint of what’s to come for the start of the 2017 season when Mitsubishi will roll into the Paris Motor Show with a new, high-end SUV concept.

Make that a premium plug-in prototype dubbed the Mitsubishi Ground Tourer, something the automaker calls “the latest expression of (its) design ambitions.”

All in the Concept!

Targeted to ride above the Mitsubishi Outlander, the Ground Tourer concept also “further expresses” the struggling Japanese automaker’s push into battery-electric propulsion, with a plug-in hybrid driveline meant to deliver “effortless cruising in all driving conditions on and off-road.”

Mitsubishi's new Outlander PHEV will use separate front and rear motors for its all-wheel-drive system.

Mitsubishi is doubling down its bet on battery power.

The struggling Japanese maker has been hoping to gain some traction with a push towards alternative propulsion that began with last year’s launch of the little i-MiEV electric vehicle.  The next entrant into the battery line-up is a lithium-powered plug-in hybrid version of the Outlander.

Based on the new Outlander that was introduced earlier this summer, it will be the world’s first plug-in hybrid SUV, Mitsubishi notes, and will make its public debut at the upcoming Paris Motor Show.

The maker claims it offers “the best of three worlds.”  That translates into an environmentally friendly drivetrain, especially when running on battery power, the cruising range of a conventional gas-powered vehicle, and the off-road capabilities of an SUV.
