Mitsubishi Grand Tourer Concept

Japanese firm will whip the covers off its high-spec hybrid SUV in Paris

Mitsubishi has released a teaser for its Grand Tourer Concept, which is set to make its debut at this year’s Paris Motor Show. 

What the Japanese firm is calling ‘the latest evolution of its new design philosophy and SUV ambitions’, the concept will feature Mitsubishi’s plug-in hybrid technology, which it says will result in effortless cruising in both on and off-road modes. 

The Grand Tourer Concept will be the third hybrid or electric-powered concept vehicle unveiled by the marque from as many international shows. The roll-out began at last year’s Geneva Motor Show when Mitsubishi revealed the lightweight XR PHEV II concept – also employing the plug-in hybrid technology. The 2015 Tokyo Motor Show saw the covers pulled off eX Concept, which was a more compact electric-powered two-door SUV concept. 

The Grand Tourer moniker suggests the latest concept will be the largest and highest spec of the three crossover models, which we’ll find out when the Paris Motor Show flings open its doors on Thursday, 29 September.
