Ineos-Grenadier E-SUV relies on fuel cells from Hyundai-relies

Hyundai/KIA are setting a good example with regard to the hydrogen fuel cell and are investing billions in hydrogen propulsion. This investment benefits the striking E-SUV from Ineos Automotive. Because Hyundai fuel cells are to be installed in their Grenadier from July 2022. Ineos is working on a Grenadier Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV) Concept, a hydrogen-powered vehicle to be tested on and off-road from late 2022.

The SUV is clearly reminiscent of older Land Rover Defender models, the production of which could also take place in the former Smart factory in Hambach, France. Hyundai could imagine that the Nexo drive could be used in the Grenadier 4×4. Whether the technology comes from the Hyundai Nexo is still unclear, but cannot be ruled out. In the case of the Hydrogen Grenadier 4×4, it is less about maximum sprint performance and more about endurance and the highest possible payload.

In addition to the Ineos Grenadier, the two brands are working together in the field of hydrogen fuel cells. The main focus here is on building a corresponding infrastructure for all aspects of hydrogen in Europe. Ineos currently provides 400 annually.000 tons of hydrogen, mostly as a by-product of its chemical production processes. This amount of hydrogen corresponds to the consumption of at least two billion liters of diesel.

In addition, the company also benefits from its vast experience in hydrogen storage and transport and just over a year ago created a business unit tasked with developing and building the hydrogen-related infrastructure that Europe, like most regions, is struggling with is missing. Ineos said it will continue to prioritize the production of green hydrogen, produced by electrolysis of water using renewable energy. However, the company is also investing in the production of blue hydrogen, where the resulting carbon can be safely captured and stored underground.

  1. Small change in the first sentence.. 😛

    “Hyundai/KIA goes well with respect to the hydrogen fuel cell bad Lead by example and invest billions in hydrogen propulsion.”
    H2 in land-based transport is a more ecological and economic error!

  2. Ineos currently provides 400 annually.000 tons of hydrogen, mostly as a by-product of its chemical production processes.

    Should probably mean that you want to “golden” the “by-product” in expensive fuel cell vehicles.

    The hydrogen lobby and the large corporations behind it will not give up and will continue to try to make the expensive fuel cell vehicles palatable so that they stay in business.

  3. In such a vehicle, the hydrogen drive is even more pointless than in pure road vehicles.

    A BEV as an off-road vehicle makes sense, you can also charge it with a generator away from civilization and then you need significantly less diesel than on an off-road vehicle with a combustion engine. But where please do you get in the jungle, the desert etc. or even developing countries produce hydrogen?
