INEOS Automotive has launched the Grenadier Commercial variant in the UK, a customised version of the 4X4 that qualifies owners to reclaim VAT and receive lower benefit-in-kind (BIK) tax rates.

The Grenadier Commercial will be built in Hambach, France, at the manufacturing facility INEOS Automotive acquired from Mercedes-Benz in January 2021, with conversion undertaken in the UK by Pontypool-based engineering specialists EDC Limited.

Replacing the existing two-seat Utility Wagon in the model line-up, the new Grenadier Commercial features a full-length flat floor with a floor-to-roof cargo barrier behind the two front seats, and can carry a standard 1,200mm x 800mm Euro pallet.

Aimed at those who need a 4X4 for professional use, the vehicle has a braked 3.5-tonne towing capacity, more than 2,000 litres of load space and 5.5 tonnes of winching power for recovering itself or other vehicles.

The Grenadier Commercial will beidentifiable by the features that qualify it for VAT exemption, which includes replacing the rear passenger windows with aluminium panels, blacked out glazing on the 30:70 split rear doors and permanently disabled chassis mounting points to prevent a second row of seats being added.

George Ratcliffe, Commercial Director, INEOS Automotive, said: “Customers in the UK have been asking for this addition to our model line-up since we launched in 2022, so we’re pleased to make this available so quickly.
