WE’LL LEARN MORE ABOUT INEOS AND FORD’S BRIDGEND PLANT
This year should see the emergence of more detail about ‘Projekt Grenadier’, the rugged 4x4 that British chemical company Ineos plans to sell in 2021 as a spiritual successor to the discontinued Land Rover Defender.
First should be details of the production site for the 25,000 Grenadiers Ineos plans to build each year, with Ford’s Bridgend plant in the running along with at least one other, unnamed location. Bridgend will have excess capacity in 2020 when a contract to build Jaguar Land Rover’s V8 petrol engines comes to an end.
