Few people have had as big an impact on the auto industry as Ian Callum’s. The car designer has helped bring to life many iconic Fords (including the RS200 and Escort Cosworth), Aston Martins (such as the DB7, DB9 and Vanquish), Jaguars (ie the C-X75, XK, KJ and F-Type) and even a collection of Nissans. But Callum’s next car is a little different.
Because he has now lifted the curtain on an electric off-road vehicle called the Skye. It’s said to be built for those “on are looking for extraordinary on- and off-road adventures”, and that it is a “impressive yet elegantly sculpted form, focused on its robust practical capabilities and off-road prowess.”
Callum states: “At four meters long, the Callum Skye is dramatically proportioned with a concise exterior driven by its capabilities. It is designed to exceed expectations: minimum mass, maximum capacity – exceptionally usable and an absolute pleasure to drive.”
We are told the car can go from 0-60 mph in less than four seconds, has all-wheel drive, a four-seat cabin and weighs only 1,150 kg.
Full specifications for the car have yet to be revealed, but we are told that more information about the Skye will be shared in 2024 once development is complete.
