The Ground Tourer PHEV Concept Is A Look Into Mitsubishi's Future

Written By:

Japanese carmaker Mitsubishi has unveiled a brand new SUV concept that will make its debut at the 2016 Paris Motor Show.

The new SUV is called the Ground Tourer Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle or in short the GT-PHEV. The concept is the latest expression of Mitsubishi's design journey and might serve as a sneak preview of the fourth-generation Outlander.

Speaking of design, the GT-PHEV features extremely sleek lights that flank the top corners of the large grille. On either side of the grille sit vertical set of lights underneath which sits another strip of horizontal lights.

Mitsubishi calls the look of the front-end of the SUV, 'Dynamic Shield', which hints at the safety aspects of the SUV's design.

The sides have a chiseled look, with straight lines straight. The windshield is steeply raked while the roof line is quite low and flat.

The sides also play host to the scissor doors while the rear view mirrors have been replaced by cameras.

The rear end of the car features a very sleek strip of red lights that make up the taillamps and run across the rear.

The rear windscreen like the one on the front is steeply raked, and there is a small spoiler mounted on the roof.

Powering the GT-PHEV is Mitsubishi's triple-motor PHEV system which includes three electric motors which are connected to a next-gen battery pack and a conventional internal combustion engine.

The motors and the battery can drive the Ground Tourer for 120 kilometers on their own but with the engine turned on the hybrid SUV has a combined range of more than 1,200 kilometres.
