In his first video interview since the project started, Sir Jim Ratcliffe sat with presenter Mark Evans in the final episode of Building The Grenadier, a series dedicated to sharing the development journey of Grenadier with the world. The full interview can be seen here:

The new model will use an all-new smaller platform than the Grenadier, while retaining its workhorse DNA and off-road capabilities. Launch timings are yet to be confirmed.


The plans underscore INEOS’s long-term commitment to the automotive industry. The second model line will join the Grenadier and Grenadier pick-up in the INEOS Automotive product family.

INEOS continues to back hydrogen fuel cells as the clean powertrain solution for future versions of the Grenadier. A fuel cell technology demonstrator is due to begin on- and off-road testing by the end of 2022.
