The concept will certainly be bolder than the soft, anonymous curves of the current model, with an angular front-end, narrower headlights and a full-width taillight treatment.
No images of the interior have been released yet, however Mitsubishi says the concept's new interior and exterior "magnifies the Outlander PHEV's unique driving experience".
That driving experience will likely be supplied by the same 2.0 litre petrol and dual-electric motor setup of the current Outlander PHEV.
In its existing form, the Outlander PHEV is capable of pure electric operation for up to 52km and consumes just 1.9 l/100km on the official combined cycle.
Expect to see and hear more about Mitsubishi's new Outlander as we draw closer to the Paris Motor Show, which opens on October 2.
