Callum Skye is the brand’s new high-performance multi-terrain electric vehicle (EV), and is the first car fully conceived, designed and engineered by the company in-house.
Skye is distinguished from counterparts in the compact multi-terrain vehicle segment as occupants are fully enclosed in a comfortable, refined cabin environment with a 2+2 layout. The all-electric, all-wheel drive is capable off-road and on, underpinned by a durable technical specification at its core. Measuring 4,047mm in length and 1,900mm in width, Skye uses a rugged space frame chassis with trail-capable suspension that delivers appropriate ground clearance as well as comfort and compliance across diverse terrains. Its 42kWh lithium-ion battery endows it with an anticipated range of 170 miles, with customers able to specify an advanced, ultra-fast charging battery capable of a remarkable empty-to-full charge in under ten minutes. With a target dry weight of 1,150kg and impeccably balanced 50/50 weight distribution, the EV is expected to accelerate 0-60mph in under four seconds.
“At four metres long, the Skye is dramatically proportioned with a concise exterior aesthetic driven by its capabilities,” said Ian Callum, head of design at Callum. “It has been designed to exceed expectations: minimal mass, maximum capability – exceptionally usable and an absolute joy to drive,” explains Ian Callum, head of design.
Whether journeying on meandering roads, grassy paddocks, crisp gravel tracks, pristine sand or snow-clad landscapes, Skye is ready for its next adventure. The Skye is currently undergoing diligent engineering refinement and rigorous testing in the UK and Europe ahead of releasing details of definitive specifications and curated variants, each finely tailored for focused on- or off-road use, in spring 2024.
