INEOS Automotive, a subsidiary of the chemical and oil products manufacturer INEOS Group, has announced the first 160 members of a planned global retail and service network for its utilitarian SUV, the Grenadier 4x4.
The newly revealed network dealerships and service sites cover 14 countries or regions, including Australia/New Zealand, Austria, Belgium/Netherlands/Luxemburg, Bulgaria, France, Germany, Italy, Kenya, Mid-East and north Africa, Poland, Romania, Spain, Switzerland and the UK.
INEOS Automotive plans to grow the network to some 200 established dealer groups, 4x4 specialists, and agricultural equipment dealers spanning 50 countries by year’s end.
In the United Kingdom, 24 Grenadier retail/service sites have been named with sales beginning in June. Confirmed Australian partners number 28, with four sites selected in New Zealand. Network partners in the U.S. are expected to be announced later in 2022, with sales commencing in 2023.
The Grenadier is manufactured in the northeastern French city of Hambach, in a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility formerly owned by Daimler AG. The two-row, five-seat SUV is built on a ladder-frame chassis with four-wheel drive and three locking differentials. Features include pre-wired auxiliary switches for easy accessory installation and a 12.3-inch central touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
