CALLUM’s SKYE is a multi-terrain electric vehicle

 

Design and engineering business CALLUM unveils SKYE, its high-performance multi-terrain concept electric car, created for on- and off-road adventures and the company’s first own brand electric vehicle fully conceived, designed, and engineered in-house. Travelers who want to journey through meandering roads, grassy paddocks, crisp gravel tracks, pristine sand, muddy paths, or snow-clad landscapes can hop on CALLUM’s SKYE and let it do its job.

 

The multi-terrain electric vehicle comes with a fully enclosed cabin car design that wards off external noise and objects from slipping inside CALLUM’s SKYE, and the company says that the electric vehicle is also quieter than traditional internal combustion engine vehicles, testifying to its ability to hush down external sounds. CALLUM SKYE’s team is working on the multi-terrain electric vehicle’s engineering and testing it in the UK and Europe. They plan to share more details about its features and version for specific on- or off-road uses in the spring of 2024.

fully enclosed cabin that accommodates 4 people

 

Popping up CALLUM SKYE’s fully enclosed cabin, the inside can accommodate four people in a two by two layout, taking them all at once on off-road terrains. At four meters in length, SKYE can keep its mass to a minimum. Ian Callum, the head of design at CALLUM, describes it as a joy to drive, with the exterior design being distinctive through a prominent accent loop, strong horizontal structure, and organic shapes at the front and rear. The overall design can be minimalistic and understated to feature its style.

 

An interesting feature around the multi-terrain electric vehicle is the integrated glass in the lower section of the doors, which still provides sharp visibility in various conditions. CALLUM’s SKYE has a robust space-frame chassis designed for off-road capabilities, and its suspension system is built for trails to offer good ground clearance for different terrains. For specs buffs, the multi-terrain electric vehicle is powered by a 42kWh lithium-ion battery, and it is expected to have a range of approximately 170 miles on a full charge. Owners have the chance to choose an advanced battery that can allow ultra-fast charging. In this case, it would take less than ten minutes for the multi-terrain electric vehicle to be fully charged.

weight distribution is balanced at 50/50

 

CALLUM’s SKYE is set to aim for a dry weight of 1,150 kilos so that the multi-terrain vehicle can have a lightweight design. The company says that the weight distribution is balanced at 50/50, and the electric vehicle is anticipated to accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in under four seconds. Adam Donfrancesco, the head of engineering at CALLUM, emphasizes that the team set high functional targets.

 

They are focusing on creating a vehicle that is unique, versatile, and durable. He adds that the engineering approach is to make sure that SKYE performs well on various off-road terrains while maintaining comfort and handling for on-road experiences. For those who want to get their hands on the multi-terrain electric vehicle, CALLUM is asking its fans to register their interest in SKYE on their website.
