CALLUM unveils its first own-brand electric car: the SKYE CALLUM

Here’s something a bit different: the CALLUM SKYE is a high-performance, all-wheel drive, multi-terrain electric vehicle with a 2+2 enclosed seating layout and a 0-60mph acceleration time of less than 4 seconds.

CALLUM SKYE

The aim appears to be to engineer the lightest possible vehicle, with a weight of just 1,150kg, which is impressive for an EV. However to achieve this lightweight, a relatively small 42kWh battery has had to be used, which results in a limited driving range of (WLTP) 170 miles. CALLUM says that customers are able to specify an advanced, ultra-fast charging battery capable of an empty-to-full charge in under ten minutes. A battery with similar properties has been developed by Nyobolt, a Cambridge-based company, so it will be interesting to see if this is the battery technology in question.

CALLUM SKYE

The CALLUM SKYE measures four metres in length and 1,900mm in width; it has a space frame chassis with trail-capable suspension and 50/50 weight distribution. CALLUM claims that in addition to its off-road capabilities, the SKYE will also offer a combination of handling and ride quality that will make it rewarding to drive on twisty country roads.

CALLUM SKYE is the company’s first own-brand vehicle fully conceived, designed and engineered in-house. The SKYE is currently undergoing testing in advance of details about its specifications being announced in spring 2024.

The company believes that the SKYE addresses a gap in the market, just as the BAC Mono is unique in providing a road-going single-seater supercar experience for owners that already have a range of other vehicles. We wait to see what it will cost with interest; this doesn’t sound like a mainstream 4x4 competitor in terms of price.

CALLUM SKYE

CALLUM is a design and engineering business that was established in July 2019 with founding members including British designer Ian Callum CBE, who has already designed an impressive 4x4 EV, the Jaguar I-PACE.
