Ian Callum creates own multi-terrain electric vehicle called Skye

LONDON: Callum, the design and engineering firm founded by Ian Callum — renowned for his work with Jaguar — has unveiled its first proprietary vehicle, the Callum Skye.

Positioned as a high-performance multi-terrain electric vehicle, the Skye is designed to cater to customers seeking exceptional on- and off-road adventures.

Breaking new ground for both Callum and the automotive industry, Skye stands out in the compact multi-terrain vehicle segment with its fully enclosed, comfortable cabin featuring a 2+2 layout.


With a length of four metres, the Skye boasts a distinctive exterior aesthetic driven by its capabilities, focusing on minimal mass and maximum capability.

Callum design head Ian Callum said the design is centered around a vehicle that is exceptionally usable and enjoyable to drive. The exterior features a striking accent loop intersected by a strong horizontal structure, creating a commanding yet elegant sculpted form.

Under the hood, the all-electric, all-wheel-drive Skye is engineered to deliver an exhilarating on-road experience while maintaining exceptional off-road capabilities.


It features a rugged space frame chassis with trail-capable suspension, providing appropriate ground clearance and comfort across diverse terrains.

The 42kWh lithium-ion battery is expected to offer a range of 273km, and customers can opt for an advanced, ultra-fast charging battery capable of a full charge in under 10 minutes.

With a target dry weight of 1,150kg and balanced 50/50 weight distribution, the Skye aims to accelerate from 0-100kph in under four seconds.


The Callum Skye is undergoing rigorous testing in the UK and Europe, with definitive specifications and variants for on- or off-road use set to be revealed in spring 2024.
