Japan Motors named INEOS Grenadier partner in Ghana

INEOS Grenadier
  • Ghana is the seventh market in the Sub-Saharan region to join the growing INEOS Grenadier sales and service network.
  • The INEOS Grenadier is a rugged and uncompromising off-roader, built from the ground up to meet the most extreme demands of customers.
  • The Grenadier has undergone extensive testing across Sub-Saharan Africa.

Japan Motors has signed on as the official retail partner for the INEOS Grenadier under the name ION Motors in Ghana. With many years of experience in the local automotive industry, Japan Motors is the ideal partner to bring the all-new INEOS Grenadier to the Ghanaian market.

“To ensure a strong Sub-Saharan network we have carefully selected partners in each market who share our confidence in the capability and success of the Grenadier,” said Tim Abbott, INEOS Automotive Head of Region South Africa and Sub-Saharan Africa. “Japan Motors has an excellent reputation in Ghana for customer service, which is a cornerstone of the INEOS Grenadier brand. We are excited to have them onboard and know they will do the Grenadier justice as the brand expands across the region.”

Commenting on this partnership, Nouhad Kalmoni, Group Executive Director Japan Motors, said: “This is an exciting new venture for us. The INEOS Grenadier is an all-new name, but we’ve done our homework and know this vehicle will appeal to customers in Ghana. We look forward to being part of the Grenadier’s success”.

Over the next few months, ION Motors – a subsidiary of Japan Motors – will be opening its Grenadier showroom at the Silver Star Towers, Airport City. The first demonstrator vehicles are expected to arrive in Ghana in the second quarter of 2023.

Designed for Africa

The Grenadier is built with tough terrain in mind and features a ladder-frame chassis, permanent four-wheel-drive, solid beam axles, and up to three locking differentials.

While it’s every inch a rugged 4X4, the Grenadier ticks all the right boxes on the road, too. The chassis combines a five-link suspension setup with Brembo brakes and either Bridgestone or BF Goodrich all-terrain tyres, meaning a composed and well- mannered drive no matter the condition of the track or trail.

The Grenadier is powered by a choice of two straight-six, 3.0-litre engines from BMW. Both the B57 diesel and B58 petrol powertrains have a proven track record, regularly appearing in top ten world’s best engine lists since 2016.

Global and local network

To date, INEOS Automotive has a network of more than 200 sales and service sites for the Grenadier spanning over 50 countries, including established dealer groups, 4X4 specialists and agricultural equipment dealers.

The INEOS Grenadier was created to fulfil the vision of adventurer and INEOS Group Chairman, Sir Jim Ratcliffe, inspired by legendary working 4X4s. The Grenadier is a rugged and uncompromising off-roader, designed to be a capable, durable, and reliable working tool to conquer the world’s harshest environments.
