Testing in plain sight at the world's biggest bike races - the Grenadier is a key part of our on-race support team.
The Grenadier will join the team at some of the biggest races as part of the 4x4's global testing and development programme. What better terrains to subject the Grenadier to alongside the extreme conditions you’d expect from rigorous prototype testing.
Testing in plain sight, the latest 2B prototype takes up the key role of official reconnaissance vehicle at all three Grand Tours. So in addition to helping the team with information on the route and conditions, live feedback will also go to Grenadier engineers as the vehicle covers hundreds of kilometres every day.
Its role at the Grand Tours is just one part of the 1.8 million kilometres across 15 countries that the Grenadier will cover during the overall testing and development process.
More on the Grenadier
In 2017, INEOS Chairman, Sir Jim Ratcliffe, a car enthusiast and experienced adventurer, identified a gap in the market for a stripped back, utilitarian, hard-working 4x4 vehicle, built on purpose. The Grenadier’s design was unveiled in July 2020 and will go into production in late 2021.
Mark Tennant, Commercial Director of INEOS Automotive said: “We’re delighted to announce this partnership, just like the Grenadier, the team is built on purpose. They know exactly what to do and have the right team to get the job done.”
