Ground Tourer Concept
When Mitsubishi first introduced the Ground Tourer Concept earlier this year, many people speculated that it could hint at a change in the brand’s design language. Well, it looks like these people were correct about the future Mitsubishi design language.
According to a recent report from Autocar, the Grand Tourer Concept will influence the future Mitsubishi design language. Small details from the concept car will appear in the new models set to release in future years. This include its grille, narrow LED headlights, and floating roof.
The first up will be the future Outlander model. It is scheduled to debut after Mitsubishi launches two new crossovers in 2017 and 2018. These design elements can also be seen in other recent Mitsubishi concepts, including the eX Concept, which is rumored to make it into production, and the GC Concept. All of these concepts were created by design chief Tsunehiro Kunimoto, who left Infiniti to join Mitsubishi two years ago.
The Ground Tourer Concept, also known as the GT-PHEV, is a plug-in electric SUV. It debuted a few months ago during the Paris Motor Show. Despite the design language changing, Mitsubishi still plans on calling the front fascia a “dynamic shield,” a term used in the current design language.
