About the Grenadier
Progress so far
The Grenadier will be a rugged 4X4 that works for the world. A no-frills utilitarian vehicle but with all the mod cons you'd expect. A working tool for farmers, foresters, adventurers, aid workers, and more.
We’re well advanced in the development stage. We're extensively testing prototypes in the most demanding conditions. And we’ve revealed our exterior design, as well as our choices for the frame, axles, suspension, engines and transmission. You can keep up to date with all the latest developments here.
We're currently reassessing our manufacturing options and will have updates in the near future.
We're currently working on an extensive testing programme to ensure the Grenadier will do the job you need it to do. We’re developing it for the world and anticipate significant interest across Europe, the Americas, Africa and Asia. We expect the first customer vehicles to be available in early 2022.
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.
Our engineers chose a multi-link set-up with separate coils and dampers to provide the most rugged and versatile off-road performance for the Grenadier.
We've partnered with BMW Group on a three-litre, six cylinder engine for both our petrol and diesel versions of the Grenadier. Watch Episode 5 of Building the Grenadier here to find out more. We're also investigating alternative fuels for future models, but right now don't feel the existing options are suitable for the Grenadier.
We chose the ZF 8HP transmission. It's an eight-speed automatic. Combined with the transfer case developed for the Grenadier, this gearbox will provide the best possible control, maximise torque, and prevent stalling. So it's ideal for off-road drivers of all experience levels. It also has the option of a semi-automatic mode.
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.
As standard, the Grenadier will come with 17-inch steel wheels with Bridgestone AT001 Dueler tyres. As an option, you can choose 18-inch steel wheels, 17- or -18-inch alloys and, if you want pure off-road tyres, you can add a set of BF Goodrich ATs.
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: email@example.com
Up to this point we are primarily split between two locations: London, UK ; Böblingen, Germany.
Our UK based office is in London (Chelsea) & 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.
