In 2009, Mitsubishi offered a first look at its next-generation styling language with the unveiling of the PX-MiEV plug-in hybrid SUV concept.
Fuelling talk of a new Outlander, the carmaker revealed an updated version of the concept last year, dubbed simply PX-MiEV II.
This week, Mitsubishi has revealed a single teaser image that hints at a new production model scheduled for a market debut later this year.
Before then however, it will appear at March's Geneva Motor Show in concept form.
Described as a "strategic and innovative premium vehicle," the new model clearly draws on the PX-MiEV's styling - but whether it will wear the Outlander badge is unclear.
Reports in the past year have pointed to a 2013 debut for a plug-in hybrid SUV, although the car is likely to wear the same body as the regular Outlander.
