BRITISH design and engineering company Callum is gearing up to put its first own brand vehicle on the market.

The Callum Skye is a high-performance, all-wheel drive and multi-terrain electric vehicle and will be priced from between £80,000 and £100,000.

it's powered by a 42kWh battery with anticipated range of 170 miles, with the option to specify an ultra-fast charging battery for full charge in under ten minutes.

Measuring 4,047mm in length and 1,900mm in width, and weighing just 1,150kg, the Skye has sportscar performance with 0-60mph achieved in under four seconds.

"Compact, capable and extremely beautiful, we're confident that this representation of the Skye exterior will turn heads, as we invite those interested in commissioning a Callum Skye to reserve their build slot," said David Fairbairn, managing director of the company created by former Jaguar design director Ian Callum in Warwick.

Inside, the Skye has a vertical centre console featuring tactile, rotary touchscreen dials for the ventilation controls and other key features. The central touchscreen will feature Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Up front are two sports seats while in the rear is a bench seat suitable for children which can be removed to create a configurable load space.

Callum says with access via a hinged tailgate, the storage area is large enough to transport luggage for long weekends away, as well as a variety of sports, lifestyle and outdoor pursuit equipment.

The Skye will be available in a number of variants including on- and off-road focussed models.

Details and specification of different derivatives will be confirmed during 2024.
