Manufacturing of the Ineos Grenadier, which was scheduled to begin this year, has been delayed to July 2022. The firm blames “unavoidable delays via 2020”, and asserts pushing back the beginning of production will certainly allow it to “attain its extensive testing targets”.
Checking of the utilitarian off-roader proceeds, most lately at the Schöckl hill near Graz, Austria, where Mercedes has actually famously examined G-Wagens for many years. Ineos states the Grenadier’s testing programme will certainly see greater than 130 models gather a mixed 1.8 million kilometres. They’ve currently been to northern Sweden this year– Death Valley and the Middle East are next up.
Strategies to put together the Grenadier in Wales were shelved when Ineos– a petrochemical firm most importantly, that’s never ever done a car in the past– bought an old Smart manufacturing facility in Hambach, France. Engines and transmissions for the off-roader are being sourced from BMW, as well as it makes use of as well as ladder-frame like a proper traditional off-roader.
Much more as we have it.
