Following the confirmation in May 2022 of a zero-emission model line, Ineos Automotive says it is developing a new electric 4X4 vehicle in conjunction with automotive supplier, Magna. Magna will take on Ineos Automotive’s third model line and has signed an agreement to start production of the new 4X4 at Magna’s Graz, Austria facility in 2026. Ineos says the new 4X4 will be smaller than the company’s Grenadier model.
Ineos says it has worked with Magna previously on series engineering and development for the Grenadier station wagon and pick-up models. Part of the development process for this new 4X4 will include a testing program on Austria’s Schöckl mountain, which is close to Magna’s complete vehicle assembly facility.
