One of the most intriguing aspects of this concept car is its underlying platform. Built on the foundation of the BMW i3s, a well-established and highly regarded electric platform, the Triumph-Makkina concept car combines the best of both worlds - the technological expertise of BMW with the innovative design prowess of Makkina. This collaboration ensures that the concept car not only delivers an electrifying driving experience but also boasts a level of reliability and performance that is synonymous with the Triumph brand.

The exterior design of the concept car is a testament to the fusion of classic and contemporary elements. Makkina has managed to capture the essence of Triumph's iconic motorcycles while incorporating sleek, aerodynamic lines that highlight the vehicle's electric powertrain. The result is a visually stunning automobile that turns heads with its elegant yet aggressive stance.

Under the hood, the electric powertrain derived from the BMW i3s platform delivers impressive performance figures. With instant torque and smooth acceleration, the Triumph-Makkina concept car offers a thrilling driving experience while remaining environmentally friendly. The integration of state-of-the-art battery technology provides an extended range, enabling drivers to embark on longer trips without the fear of running out of power.

Step inside the concept car, and you'll be greeted by a meticulously crafted interior that exudes luxury and sophistication. Makkina's attention to detail is evident in every aspect of the cabin, from the premium materials to the intuitive layout of the dashboard. The incorporation of advanced infotainment and connectivity features ensures that drivers and passengers alike are immersed in a seamless digital experience, making every journey enjoyable and connected.

Triumph's decision to embrace electric mobility reflects the changing landscape of the automotive industry. With increasing environmental concerns and a shift towards sustainable transportation, renowned manufacturers like Triumph understand the importance of adapting to meet the evolving needs of consumers. By partnering with Makkina and leveraging the BMW i3s platform, Triumph has positioned itself at the forefront of electric innovation, catering to a new generation of eco-conscious drivers.

The unveiling of this electric concept car signifies Triumph's determination to explore new horizons and push the boundaries of what's possible. While this vehicle is currently in the concept stage, the enthusiasm and anticipation surrounding its debut indicate a potential shift in Triumph's future product lineup. If this collaboration proves successful, we could see Triumph venture further into the electric vehicle market, offering consumers a wider range of eco-friendly options without compromising on performance or style.

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.”
