British design and engineering company Callum has revealed its vision of a high-performance multi-terrain electric vehicle. The SKYE is the company’s first own brand vehicle fully conceived, designed and engineered in-house.
“At four metres long, the SKYE is dramatically proportioned with a concise exterior aesthetic driven by its capabilities. 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 at Callum.
The all-electric, all-wheel-drive SKYE measures 4,047mm in length and 1,900mm in width, using a space frame chassis with 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 which it’s claimed is capable of an empty-to-full charge in under 10 minutes. With a target weight of 1,150kg and 50/50 weight distribution, the SKYE is expected to accelerate 0-60mph in under four seconds.
The SKYE is undergoing ‘engineering refinement and rigorous testing’ in the UK and Europe, with the expectation that customers will be able to buy the car in spring 2024.
