Multiple sources are pointing towards INEOS Automotive choosing Bridgend in Wales as the location for a factory to built Projekt Grenadier, the forthcoming Land Rover Defender inspired 4×4.
INEOS founder Sir Jim Ratcliffe, one of Britain’s richest people, is expected to formally announce an agreement later this week.
It’s a huge boost for the British automotive manufacturing industry, especially in light of the Ford factory set to close next year in Bridgend.
Projekt Grenadier, however, will face tough competition as Jaguar Land Rover have unveiled their own successor to the famously tough Defender.
