Latest project from CALLUM to make global public debut at Concours on Savile Row

CALLUM SKYE, the first own brand vehicle fully developed in-house by the British design and engineering business CALLUM, will be seen in public for the first time at Concours on Savile Row, London on 22-23 May 2024.

The pioneering, high-performance, all-wheel-drive, multi-terrain electric vehicle was announced in November 2023 to global critical acclaim. The first running prototype will be displayed outside Edward Sexton’s store throughout the free-to-attend event that celebrates the long history that car manufacturers and tailors share.

Engineered to offer an exhilarating and rewarding driving experience both on- and off-road, SKYE has been crafted to ensure the utmost capability, refinement and beauty for discerning adventurers. As an all-electric vehicle, 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, it boasts sportscar performance with 0-60mph achieved in under four seconds.

“The CALLUM SKYE is bold, beautifully engineered and crafted with refinement and craftsmanship. The same can be said for the world-leading bespoke tailoring that exists on Savile Row. We can’t wait to see and hear the reactions of event visitors who will be the first to see SKYE in person,” says David Fairbairn, managing director, CALLUM. “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.”
