Callum’s Stylish, Lightweight Electric Off-Roader Is Here—But You Better Hurry

The Callum Skye is finally ready for its spotlight.

The first vehicle built by former Jaguar design head Ian Callum’s eponymous marque will make its public debut in London later this week. And, in preparation for the big unveiling, the company has started taking orders for the futuristic electric off-roader.

Callum will pull back the curtain on a prototype of the Skye at this year’s edition of the Concours on Saville Row, which will be held this coming Wednesday and Thursday. The brand released renderings of the EV online last fall, but this will be the first chance for anyone aside from industry insiders and VIP clients to see the 4×4 in person.

The Skye is unlike anything we’ve seen from Callum, who is best known for designing memorable sports cars like the Jaguar C-X75 and Aston Martin Vanquish. There are two distinct halves to the vehicle’s design. The top is all clean lines, smooth curves, and bold splashes of color guaranteed to turn heads on any city street, while the bottom features a set of giant all-terrain tires that make clear it’s also a bruiser. As part of the announcement of the EV’s public debut, the firm also released the first images of its 2+2 interior. They show a minimalist space that features a stacked center console with rotary dial controls.

The company’s off-roader will be powered by a drivetrain that includes electric motors on each axle (giving it all-wheel drive) and a 42-kWh battery pack. It’s unclear how much power the setup will produce, but the EV will be able to launch from zero to 60 in under four seconds. Range comes in at a rather unspectacular 170 miles, but the smaller pack and a steel-and-carbon spaceframe chassis mean the vehicle tips the scales at just 2,530 pounds. Callum also says you’ll be able to charge the battery fully in just 10 minutes.

Even if you aren’t able to make it to the Saville Row this week, you can now reserve the EV through Callum’s website for £500. The company plans to hand-build 100 examples of the EV, each of which are expected to cost between £80,000 (roughly $102,000) and £110,000 ($140,000).
