The INEOS Grenadier will be coming to New Zealand

With an eye firmly set to the future, the newest global automotive manufacturer, INEOS Automotive, has released a sneak peek of its flagship vehicle – the INEOS Grenadier.
Currently under development, the no-nonsense 4x4 vehicle has been confirmed for Australian and New Zealand shores.

With the design goal of creating the ultimate 4x4, the vehicle is being built to handle the world’s most challenging environments, ensuring those who need a rugged, capable and comfortable go-anywhere working vehicle – perfect for New Zealand terrain – can access the far corners of the country.

The vehicle was created to fulfil the vision of adventurer and chairman of INEOS, Sir Jim Ratcliffe. "The Grenadier project started by identifying a gap in the market, abandoned
by a number of manufacturers, for a utilitarian off-road vehicle," he says.

While most new vehicle releases are kept under the strictest levels of secrecy, Dirk Heilmann, INEOS Automotive’s CEO, says, "We are delighted to be able to share the design of the Grenadier so early in the process.

Most manufacturers would hold back, but we are a new business, building a new brand, and we want to take people with us on this exciting journey. "Showing the design now allows us to focus on the critical next phase of the vehicle’s development, testing its capability and durability.

"We have a very challenging programme ahead, as we put prototypes through their paces in all conditions, on the way to accumulating some 1.8 million test kilometres over the coming year. 
"From today, the covers are off. Testing ‘in plain sight’ without the need for camouflage wrapping, foam blocks, or fake panels is an added benefit."
