Callum Skye off-road EV debuts cost $100,000

The Callum Skye, a groundbreaking creation from legendary Jaguar designer Ian Callum, is set to debut at the Concours on Savile Row in London. This electric vehicle defies traditional categorization by blending elements of a coupe, SUV, and beach buggy. It’s Callum’s first vehicle designed from the ground up, following his notable project of turning the Jaguar C-X75 concept into a road-legal car.

Callum Skye Design

The Skye’s design stays true to the prototypes revealed late last year, maintaining an air of mystery around its exact classification. It sports a coupe-like silhouette combined with substantial ground clearance, suggesting off-road capabilities. Measuring 4.04 meters long and 1.9 meters wide, the Skye is compact yet robust, comparable in length to a two-door Jeep Wrangler but slightly wider. Despite its compact size, it weighs 1,150 kg.

Inside, the Skye features a 2+2 layout with sporty front seats and a rear bench suitable for storage or smaller passengers. The driver interface is modern, featuring a three-spoke steering wheel, a tablet-style touchscreen for infotainment, and a vertical array of small, round touchscreens on the center stack.

Powering the Skye is a 42 kWh lithium-ion battery pack, offering an estimated driving range of 170 miles. While this range is not class-leading, the vehicle compensates with a fast-charging system that can replenish the battery in under 10 minutes. Performance-wise, the Skye is impressive, boasting a 0-60 mph time of under four seconds.

Callum Skye Price

The Skye is designed for serious off-road adventures, with large tires that are functional rather than merely aesthetic. Callum has announced that production will be limited, with prices ranging from $99,000 to $120,000 depending on options. The order books are now open, and additional variants, including ones focused on either off-roading or on-road performance, are planned for release later in 2024.
