'Roo the Day
New SUV Carries a Surprising Load

Just when you thought the SUV craze couldn't get any more overheated, General Motors has upped the ante. Yesterday, at the annual Copenhagen auto show, the company unveiled a prototype for a "DUV," or dual utility vehicle, dubbed the Kangaroo. Not only would the vehicle be the largest SUV on the market -- 31 feet long, and weighing half again as much as a Hummer H2 -- it would be the first personal vehicle ever designed as both a means of transport and a garage. Hard to believe, but the Kangaroo is designed to carry a spare vehicle inside it: a small, nimble two-seater electric car called the Joey, which is loaded and unloaded via a retractable ramp. On vacations, the company said, the Joey could be used for navigating narrow city streets or "sport driving," while the Kangaroo could carry the luggage for the long haul. According to GM, the Kangaroo and Joey would be "an unbeatable one-two punch for families that want the luxury of a large car with the convenience of a small one."
