The INEOS Grenadier made its first ever run up the Goodwood Festival of Speed’s iconic hillclimb, with the support of the wider INEOS family. The new 4×4 was accompanied by a peloton of cyclists from the INEOS Grenadiers cycling team.
Among those representing the INEOS Grenadiers cycling team in the peloton were British Olympic gold medallist, Owain Doull, emerging Belgian star Laurens De Plus, and British road race champion, Ben Swift. Taking the Grenadier up the hill – Esteban Gutiérrez, driving on behalf of the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team.
As well as its first dynamic show outing, this was also the first public viewing of the Grenadier’s newly unveiled production interior.
“It’s great to be at the Festival of Speed and to see the Grenadier on the hill – another milestone in our development programme,” said Mark Tennant, INEOS Automotive’s Commercial Director. “Clearly we weren’t looking to break any speed records, but we have been delighted with the opportunity to show the vehicle off, following hard on the heels of our reveal of the interior last week – and equally delighted at the reception we have had from Goodwood visitors.”
The interior of the INEOS Grenadier is designed on purpose, to deliver the space, practicality and versatility owners need from a hard-working 4X4. Starting from a clean sheet, the design also cleverly incorporates the modern technology and comfort expected of a vehicle for the 2020s and beyond.
Visitors to the Festival of Speed can see the Grenadier in the event’s First Glance Paddock, where the off-roader is enjoying a conspicuously high-riding presence alongside low-slung supercars and luxury coupes.
Reservations will open in October 2021 and deliveries will start from July 2022.
