Ineos plans to “make the buying process as convenient and painless as possible” by also focusing on providing a digital retail model and a network of physical dealers.
Additionally, Ineos has teamed up with Bosch to provide after-sales support and plans to open 14 service-only facilities across the UK, although those locations have yet to be announced.
Worldwide, Grenadier owners will be able to have their car repaired and maintained at some 10,000 Bosch dealerships in 150 counties.
Outside the UK, Ineos is exploring the possibility of BMW technicians servicing the Grenadier, which is available with a choice of BMW straight-six petrol and diesel engines.
Pearson has previously explained that the Grenadier’s mostly build-to-order production model means the company will not “proactively build stock” because customers “will want to do their own thing”. He suggested delivery times will be in line with what is “typical” of other manufacturers.
He also told Autocar that while Ineos is “not isolated” from the current global semiconductor shortage, it has taken into account any potential delays that may arise from the situation and is “very happy” to meet the deadlines. offered.
As for future powertrain options, Ineos remains committed to a straightforward petrol and diesel offering from launch. Pearson suggested that although “electric technology has evolved tremendously in recent years”, an EV drivetrain would not yet be compatible with the Grenadier’s weight, functionality and intended use case.
Ineos does, however, have a fuel cell development partnership in place with Hyundai, which Pearson says has “no marketing rotation”. Ineos, he said, “wants to be at the forefront of developing the hydrogen economy”.
Ineos is above all a chemical engineering company, producing 300,000 tonnes of hydrogen per year, and is involved in a project to develop the European “clean hydrogen” network.
