Mitsubishi Motors looks set to completely ignore its ancient Lancer lineup, as the brand transitions to becoming an SUV-only manufacturer, with the next model in its range to be based off the Ground Tourer concept.

We’ll get our first official glimpse of the Ground Tourer at the Paris Motor Show in September, meaning Mitsubishi has plenty of time to slowly strip away the shroud of darkness surrounding this first image.

Mitsubishi describes the Grand Tourer Concept as an SUV Coupe, despite there clearly being enough cut-lines in the body work to represent a proper four-door form, so really just an SUV then.

Designed to sit above the previous XR PHEV II and eX concepts, the Ground Tourer looks likely to preview the next generation Outlander, provided Mitsubishi actually takes the Ground Tourer beyond concept stage.

Although very few details of the new concept have been announced, we know that motive force will be provided by a plug-in hybrid powertrain, although it remains to be seen how much this new vehicle will have in common (if anything) with the existing Outlander PHEV.

Despite arriving after Nissan's purchase of a 34 percent share in Mitsubishi, the Ground Tourer project will have likely been locked in before the change of ownership, meaning Nissan's influence in the concept will have been minimal. Whether that holds true for an eventual production version remains to be seen.

No doubt Mitsubishi will have a slow and steady flow of teaser images along with tiny tidbits of information in the lead up to the Ground Tourer’s September debut, and TMR will keep you updated as they emerge.
