The current Mitsubishi Outlander is on its last leg, which explains why Mitsubishi is giving it a fresh look before an entirely new model arrives in 2017. There’s still little information about this ‘new model’ but as it turns out, Mitsubishi is giving us a little preview at the Paris Motor Show with the debut of the Outlander PHEV Concept-S.
It’s unlikely that the successor will be called the Outlander because that would go against the premise of the new model taking the Outlander’s place in Mitsubishi’s lineup. Instead, Mitsubishi is promoting the Outlander PHEV Concept-S as a preview of the Outlander PHEV production model, complete with refined design aesthetics that combines the technology of the company’s twin-motor PHEV system with the spirit of a tried and true 4x4 SUV .
We’ll know more about the Outlander PHEV Concept-S at the Paris Motor Show in October. For now, indulge yourselves with these two teaser photos that Mitsubishi graciously sent to our inbox.
