GFG Style Kangaroo 'Hyper-SUV' Concept World Premiere! - Driving on Snow,
Overview & More!
The Geneva Motor Show always attracts some weird and wacky concepts and the
GFG Style Kangaroo is one of the first to be unveiled at this year’s event.
Attendees at a recent concours event in Switzerland caught a glimpse of the
car over the weekend but it’s only now that the company has released
official images and specifications for the vehicle. Dubbed an ‘electric
hyper-SUV’, the GFG Style Kangaroo is unlike any other vehicle you’ve laid
The electric platform underpinning the vehicle has been co-developed with CH
Auto and houses two 180 kW batteries delivering the equivalent of 483 hp and
442 lb-ft (600 Nm) of torque. Power is sent to the ground through all four
wheels, allowing the Kangaroo to jump to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.8 seconds.
The vehicle also includes a 90 kWh battery pack that’s said to offer up a
range exceeding 450 km (279 miles).

Also making the GFG Style Kangaroo unique is its suspension system. Drivers
of the hyper-SUV can select ‘Racing’ mode which drops the car’s ride height
to 140 mm (5.5-inch). Next is a ‘Road’ suspension setting where the ride
height is raised to 190 mm (7.4-inches), and an ‘Off-Road’ mode where the
suspension rises to 260 mm (10.2-inches).
GFG Style claims that when the Kangaroo is driven in its Racing and Rode
configurations, the shock absorbers work with a single spring. When Off-Road
mode is selected, the shock absorbers work with two springs in series.
Most of the Kangaroo’s exterior is made from carbon fiber but there are
polycarbonate fenders. Among the key exterior styling details are butterfly
doors, narrow headlights and taillights, and a sharp front bumper. The car
also includes large 22-inch wheels with Pirelli Scorpion tires and has a
number of sensors on the roof to enable autonomous driving functions.
Inside, the Kangaroo features three large displays: one used for a digital
gauge cluster, a second for a wide screen above the gauge cluster, and a
third vertical screen that controls all the infotainment functions.
GFG style hasn’t said if it has any interest in bringing the Kangaroo to the
