Ineos Automotive has announced the renewal of its partnership with Magna for development of the Ineos Grenadier. The company has previously worked with Magna Powertrain for its upcoming Grenadier 4X4 vehicle. Magna has worked on the chassis and suspension development for the OEM. Ineous will now work with Magna Steyr for series development of the Grenadier.
Production plans for the Grenadier have recently been confirmed and it will now move into series development with a keen sight set on the beginning of production. Magna Steyr has reported that with its unique position of complete vehicle knowledge and expertise it can support traditional auto OEMs while also supplying to new entrants.
The engine for the new Ineos Grenadier will be supplied by the BMW Group. This motor is reported to be an inline six cylinder turbocharged petrol and diesel motor. Ineous Automotive had announced its technology partnership with the BMW Group in March 2019. The selected twin turbo powertrains to be used on the Ineos Grenadier are optimised for efficiency, durability and performance.
The company setup its manufacturing facility in Bridgend, Wales. The name Grenadier was chose by the company’s fans and followers. This vehicle has been purpose built for off road activity. The new manufacturing facility will offer up to 200 jobs initially and in the long term will offer 500 jobs. At the moment, the site development is in full swing and is reported to be ready in time to support the commencement of production in 2021.
Ineos Automotive has also confirmed that it is working on a sub-assembly plant Estarreja, Portugal. This facility will work on the body and chassis of the Ineos Grenadier. It will work in conjunction with European Supply Chain partners. The company has reportedly pumped in £ 600 million to bring the Ineos Grenadier to market by 2021.
