Order out of Chaos.

Ian Callum is a prominent British car designer known for his influential work in the automotive industry.

Born on 30 July 1954, Ian Stuart Callum is a British car designer who has worked for Ford, TWR, Aston Martin, and Jaguar.

In 1999, he became the Director of Design for Jaguar Cars, where he played a pivotal role in modernising the brand and creating a new design language.

Designing concepts and production cars like the Jaguar C-X75, F-Type, F-Pace, and the I-Pace.

Due to its unusual off-road design, it is challenging to know what to call the new vehicle. Let’s call it a ‘thingy’.

His consultancy, which started in 2019, has revealed rendered images of what is best described as a ‘fully electric trail-spec coupe.’

The design is a complete departure from his usual style of work — introducing the Callum Skye.

The Callum Skye is an electric off-roader, a multi-activity electric vehicle that can take on any terrain or weather conditions.

Mr Callum has recognised that the exposed wheels and tyres may need some form of extended mudguard; he went on to say the extensions could be removable.

Although no official power figures have been published, a 0-60 mph target in less than 4.0 seconds is indicated.

There will be a limit of 100 hand-built ‘thingies’, with the first deliveries expected in the first quarter of 2025.

In the words of Mr Callum:

Design creates order out of chaos, but chaos is often required to simply be creative.
