Ineos Unveils the Quartermaster: A Hotly Anticipated Dual-Cab Utility
Are you excited to witness the unveiling of the Quartermaster at the Goodwood Festival of Speed?
Ineos is all set to reveal its highly anticipated Quartermaster dual-cab utility at the upcoming Goodwood Festival of Speed. This new addition to the Ineos lineup will be showcased alongside the first hydrogen fuel cell-powered Grenadier prototype, fulfilling the vision of Sir Jim Ratcliffe, the creator of the Grenadier. Let’s dive into the details of this exciting new vehicle.
- The Quartermaster will debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed
- It is a utility version of the Grenadier
- The Quartermaster and the Grenadier FCEV Technology Demonstrator will be driven on the hill climb track
- It features a longer rear overhang and a significantly longer tray
- The Quartermaster will offer both petrol and diesel powertrains, with the FCEV option expected in the future
- Ineos is collaborating with Hyundai to expand its hydrogen capabilities
Ineos has been working on a utility version of the Grenadier right from the start. Sir Jim Ratcliffe had always planned for a ‘small cutaway pick-up’ to accompany the short- and long-wheelbase wagon models.
The Quartermaster, which will be showcased at the First Glance Paddock at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, looks almost identical to the long-wheelbase Grenadier. However, it is longer, with an extended rear overhang and a significantly longer tray.
Styling cues on the Quartermaster are expected to be similar to the Grenadier, but with a distinct difference – the spare wheel will be stowed upright in the tray instead of being set on the tailgate.
When it comes to powertrains, the Quartermaster will offer both petrol and diesel options, similar to its SUV sibling. Additionally, there are future considerations for a hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV) variant that is likely to be available in a couple of years.
Ineos believes that FCEV technology is better suited for larger, off-road focused models like the Grenadier and Quartermaster. Battery electric power, on the other hand, will be reserved for lighter models in the future, such as their upcoming Jimny rival.
In a bid to expand its hydrogen capabilities, Ineos has partnered with Hyundai. This collaboration aims to combine their expertise in chemistry and hydrogen fuels to develop a hydrogen value chain in Europe. The objective is to facilitate public and private sector projects in the clean hydrogen economy.
The Goodwood Festival of Speed, where the Quartermaster will be unveiled, is scheduled to take place from July 13th to 16th.
The highly awaited Quartermaster dual-cab utility from Ineos is finally here. This versatile vehicle, along with the hydrogen-powered Grenadier, represents Ineos’ commitment to innovation. With its stylish design, powerful petrol and diesel powertrains, and potential FCEV option in the future, the Quartermaster is set to make waves in the Australian market and beyond. Stay tuned for more updates and get ready to be impressed by Ineos’ latest offering.
