New Italian Electric Hyper SUV Concept Has Very Weird Name

Teaser / Comments

Wait until you find out what it’s called.

With the 2019 Geneva Motor Show now less than a month away, automakers have started to tease new concept cars that will debut at the show. Italdesign, for example, will reveal an exciting new electric supercar at the annual auto show.

Now, GFG Style, a company founded in 2015 by legendary Italian designer Giorgetto Giugiaro and his son Fabrizio, has teased a new electric "hyper SUV" that will debut at next month's Geneva Motor Show. It's called the Kangaroo, and while the bizarre name may raise a few eyebrows, the specs sound promising.

The company claims the electric SUV will hit 0-62 mph in 3.5 seconds, a top speed of around 155 mph, and be able to drive "on any terrain." It will only have seating for the driver and one passenger and feature four-wheel drive and four-wheel steering. The electric SUV will ride on an advanced aluminum space frame covered in a carbon fiber body, with the architecture being developed in cooperation with CH Auto.

GFG Style has released a teaser image of the Kangaroo SUV, but it looks more like a sports car from the front in the photo. However, the image is a render so the real car could look drastically different from other angles. "Currently we are only revealing the 'eyes' of this extraordinary concept that, as in our tradition, will be completely unveiled in Geneva and drivable after the show on any terrain," said Fabrizio Giugiaro.

Last year, GFG Style also unveiled the Sibylla concept at Geneva, a sleek electric sedan inspired by legendary sports cars designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro such as the BMW M1 and the original Maserati Ghibli.
