About the Grenadier
Progress so far
The Grenadier will be an uncompromising 4x4 that works for the world. It will be a no-frills utilitarian vehicle. A working tool for farmers, foresters, explorers and aid workers.
You can see some of what we’ve achieved with the frame and axles so far here. And soon we’ll have updates on the suspension, too. We’re planning to have a rolling chassis reveal event in June 2020. A production-ready version of the Grenadier is coming in 2021.
We’re well advanced in the development stage. Early prototypes are already being tested in the most demanding conditions. And we’ve locked down our choices for both the frame and the axles. You can keep up to date with the latest developments here.
The Grenadier will be built in the UK, at our new manufacturing facility in Bridgend, South Wales.
Prototype vehicles are already under test. We are working on an extensive programme to ensure the Grenadier will do the job you need it to do. We’re developing it for the world and expect significant interest across Europe, the Americas, Africa and Asia. We expect the first customer cars to be available in 2021.
Nuts and Bolts
A box-section ladder frame with up to 4mm wall thickness. The engineers decided this classic style of frame, basis of many iconic 4X4s, was the best choice for tackling the toughest off road terrain.
The INEOS engineers thought long and hard about what axles were the best option for the Grenadier. They decided on rugged beam axles front and rear. They’re being made by Carraro, the expert four-wheel-drive vehicle builders.
We have partnered with BMW Group to deliver petrol and diesel powertrains for the Grenadier. We are also investigating alternative fuels for the future, but at this point we do not feel the technology is suitable for a vehicle like the Grenadier.
It’s too early to confirm pricing, but we know affordability is as important as durability, reliability and capability. The Grenadier will be priced competitively.
Careers at INEOS Automotive
After you’ve applied, you should receive an automated response that your information has been safely received.
Our talent acquisition team do their best to review and access the candidate pool as they come in. However given the excitement around everything related to The Grenadier, it may take as long as 2 weeks for the team to complete this process. In the rare instance you have not received any feedback to your application in that timeframe, then you can assume that you have not been successful on this particular occasion. Generally If you are not selected to move forward in the recruiting process, you will receive an e-mail notification from us. Additionally you are welcome and encouraged to continue applying for any other jobs that interest you, however we do ask you do not continue applying to the same job multiple times as it will not amend any prior results.
If you are selected for an interview, you will be contacted by our recruitment team who will outline the process and set expectations for what to anticipate moving forward.
We appreciate your patience during the review process. If you have any additional questions or concerns you can direct them to us via e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Up to this point we are primarily split between two locations: London, UK ; Böblingen, Germany. However, following the recent announcements of the manufacturing sites, you will start to see openings become available based from either site: Estarreja, Portugal & Bridgend, South Wales.
Our UK based office is in London (Knightsbridge) & primarily consists of the following business units: HR, Finance, IT, Commercial, Legal, & half of our Procurement & Supply Chain Team.
Our German office consists of the Engineering & Studio Design teams and the remaining half of our Supply Chain & Procurement teams.
In the future, we will have opportunities across the globe for you to consider.
Unfortunately INEOS Automotive does not sponsor visas or work permits. You will need to be authorised to work in the country where the job is based unless otherwise stated in the job description.
In the future we will have the capacity to offer opportunities to students for co-op programs or internships, however at the current time we are not in a position to offer such opportunities. As you can imagine, being a start-up-like company we are still developing as an organization & building up our internal teams to where we will then be able to support university students by offering first-class opportunities in the future.
