Ineos Grenadier Commercial goes on sale

A brand-new commercial vehicle variant of the Ineos Grenadier has gone on sale, priced at £51,931 (exc VAT).

Although it retains the station wagon bodywork of the standard Grenadier and looks little different - the only visual difference being alloy panels in lieu of side glass - the two-seater Grenadier Commercial has a full-length flat load floor and a mesh bulkhead and is VAT-reclaimable as Ineos has permanently disabled the mounting points that would allow a second row of seats to be added.

It has enough capacity to swallow a single Euro pallet and over 2,000 litres of load space, along with 3.5t towing capacity. The Grenadier sits on a box-section ladder frame chassis, with a BMW 3.0-litre turbocharged inline six-cylinder petrol or diesel engine and dual range transmission.

George Ratcliffe, Commercial Director for 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. The versatility of the Grenadier platform allows this level of modification without any compromise to the driving dynamics or off-road capabilities.”

The Grenadier Commercial will be built in Hambach, France, with conversion undertaken in the UK by Pontypool-based engineering specialists EDC.

Does the £40k VED premium apply to vans as well as cars?

I am purchasing a new Volkswagen Transporter van and having it converted into a campervan. The purchase price of the basic van is just over £40k. Does the premium supplement apply to vans or does it only apply to cars?
The premium tax rate for cars over £40,000 doesn't apply to light goods vehicles such as vans. So if you're buying a new Euro 5 compliant van, the annual tax rate is currently £140. There is a different system for campervans but as you're buying a van to convert, rather than buying a campervan or motorhome, these rates won't apply.
