INEOS Automotive began In 2017. INEOS Chairman Sir Jim Ratcliffe, a car enthusiast and experienced adventurer, identified a gap in the market for a stripped back, utilitarian, hard-working 4x4 engineered for modern day compliance and reliability.
The idea to develop a vehicle from scratch was developed by Sir Jim and some friends in their favourite pub, The Grenadier in Belgravia, London, which inspired the vehicle’s name. INEOS Automotive Limited was formed and a senior team of automotive professionals assembled to bring the vision to reality with a fresh perspective of 4X4 development and manufacturing.
Built from the ground up, the INEOS Grenadier has been designed as a rugged, capable and comfortable go-anywhere working vehicle. Practical features include a 70:30 split rear door, integrated roof bars, pre-wiring for auxiliary lamps and accessories, and a front bumper to sit on. An ‘open-source’ approach to accessories means owners can tailor the vehicle to their specific requirements.
The interior combines utilitarian practicality with the technology and comfort today’s users expect. Its intuitive and functional layout features physical switches, widely spaced for easy use on the move, a central infotainment screen, and an overhead console for off-road and auxiliary controls. Hose-out rubber flooring, hard-wearing Recaro seats and numerous stowage options mean the Grenadier is ready for anything work and life can throw at it.
Production of the INEOS Grenadier will start in July 2022 at the company’s state-of-the-art factory at Hambach, on the German border. One of Europe’s most modern vehicle assembly plants, it has received more than €500m investment in new facilities and technology in the last few years.
INEOS plans to have a 200-strong sales and aftersales network for the Grenadier spanning over 50 countries by the end of 2022.
