MDG are proud to announce the planning approval for what will be one of the first 24 Ineos Grenadier showrooms in the UK. The project is being built for Halliwell Jones and will be located at a new site in Chester.
The Grenadier, for those that have not come across the name, is a new no-nonsense 4×4 powered by a range of BMW engines. Ineos are also in discussions with Hyundai to produce a hydrogen fuel cell drive train. It is hoped that the car will fill the vacuum left by the original Land Rover Defender which was discontinued in 2016. The Grenadier certainly draws some of its styling from the iconic Defender with a rugged workmanlike design approach, a trait which will be implemented within the new showroom, with exposed services, concrete floors and raw steel frame.
Currently, there are two models in the range, the Station Wagon (which can also be had as the Belstaff Edition) and the Utility Wagon. Eventually there will be a Double Cab Edition which is why the new showroom can display three models as part of future proofing the building. The project is expected to hit site Q4 2022 and trading early 2023.
