INEOS Fusilier: New Off-Road Electric Vehicle


  • Fusilier


INEOS Automotive unveiled their latest addition, the INEOS Fusilier, a 4x4 built for both on and off-road adventure. This exciting announcement follows their commitment to a zero-emission future, first announced in May 2022.

The Fusilier promises best-in-class off-road capability without sacrificing on-road performance. The big news? It will come in two powertrains: a pure battery-electric vehicle (BEV) and a low-emission range-extender option.

Dual Powertrain Options for Diverse Needs

The range-extender features a small gasoline engine that acts as a generator, maintaining battery charge when external charging isn't available. This caters to drivers who might venture far from charging stations. Specific details and launch date for the range-extender are expected later this year.

"We realised that for decarbonization to succeed, we need a variety of powertrains," said Sir Jim Ratcliffe, Chairman of INEOS. “Electric vehicles are perfect for short trips and cities, but for longer journeys, we need options. The Fusilier's range-extender offers drastically reduced emissions while providing the range and refuelling convenience needed."

Collaboration and Innovation

Developed alongside Magna Steyr, a leading automotive supplier, the Fusilier will be a unique offering. Building on the DNA of the Grenadier, the Fusilier will be slightly smaller and lower, with a modern design. It will be built on a custom platform with a steel underbody and aluminium closures.

This partnership isn't new. INEOS previously collaborated with Magna Steyr on the Grenadier station wagon and Quartermaster pickup. Magna Steyr's experience in producing electric, hybrid, and conventional vehicles ensures the Fusilier will be built with expertise. Part of the development will include rigorous testing in the mountains of Austria, near Magna Steyr's assembly facility.

A Commitment to the Future

INEOS further emphasised their commitment to clean transportation by showcasing a hydrogen-powered Grenadier demonstrator at the 2023 Goodwood Festival of Speed. While the technology is ready, widespread hydrogen refuelling infrastructure is needed before it's commercially viable. The Fusilier was Initially scheduled for production in 2026, but with the introduction of a range extender option, production has been pushed back to the beginning of 2027 at the earliest. Consequently, the INEOS Fusilier is anticipated to hit the roads by 2028.
