PProduction of the Ineos Grenadier has begun, with the first models rolling off the assembly line in Hambach, France.
This is an important milestone for the British brand, as it means customers will start receiving their orders in December this year, despite ongoing disruptions in the global supply chain.
Ineos Automotive commercial director Mark Tennant said the company had come a long way since the project began in 2017.
“This is a historic moment for vehicle manufacturer Ineos Automotive,” Tennant said.
“Getting to this point is a testament to the resilience and hard work of the entire Ineos Automotive team, our development partners and our suppliers – for which we thank them all as we now look forward to making our first deliveries to customers.”
The six-model Grenadier range consists of three five-seat station wagon models and three two-seat utility wagons. All models are available with either petrol or diesel BMW 3.0-litre turbocharged six-cylinder engines.
Model names include Grenadier, Grenadier Trialmaster Edition and Grenadier Fieldmaster Edition, with prices starting at $84,500 before on-road costs for the base utility wagon. The range-topping Fieldmaster station wagon tops out at $96,495
Order boxes opened in Australia in May 2022.
