The Ineos Grenadier is already close to its great example(s) on several fronts, but it still lacks a pick-up version. Not long now, because the Ineos Grenadier Quartermaster will be released next month. The Grenadier also tastes hydrogen.
According to its creators, the Ineos Grenadier is inspired by off-road legends such as the Mercedes-Benz G-Class, the Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40, and the Land Rover Defender. Especially the influences of the latter are of course not to be missed and, according to Land Rover, were even worth a lawsuit. Ineos won it and that is why the Grenadier can not only continue happily, but a new variant can even appear that is also strongly reminiscent of the Defender. After all, there was also a pick-up of the Defender and soon the Ineos Grenadier will also get an open cargo box.
Next month, during the Goodwood Festival of Speed (July 13-16), the curtain will be lifted. Incidentally, it will be a revelation that will not bring many big surprises in the design field. The very first time Ineos Automotive showed the Grenadier in full, there was also a pick-up version in the photos. After that, it remained with the regular version, but now there is still a sequel.
Although the reveal of the Grenadier Quartermaster may not be that exciting, Ineos will attract enough attention in two weeks. At the same time as the Quartermaster, Ineos is showing another version of the Grenadier with a fuel cell on board. According to Ineos, the study model ‘shows how suitable this zero-emission technology is for a future long-range off-roader’. So it seems that the next model from Ineos will work with hydrogen. We already know that there will be an all-new electric-powered brother to the Grenadier in 2026, so a fuel cell version may also be coming. However, it can certainly not be completely ruled out that the Grenadier will also use hydrogen.
