United Kingdom 2015 Defender 90 Puma 2.2 XS CSW Santorini Black
The Farmers Army

Ineos Grenadier are supporting The Farmers Weekly in helping to promote awareness about the projected shortage of labour for this forthcoming harvest.

Looks like Grenadier consider Farmers as potential customers unlike JLR

So......... does that mean Grenadier will compete on price with all the Japanese, Korean and Chinese pick-ups so many farmers prefer to own these days? I doubt I very much Epsom Green Tdi300 County Hard Top converted into a Station Wagon

New Zealand 2016 Defender 90 Puma 2.2 HT Corris Grey

Well if you base sales on volume (there for it's cheaper to make)... Sales of the Toyota Hilux in 2017.... 521000 units... or pretty much EVERYTHING JLR managed to produce in the same year.... That's ONE manufacturers model....
The market for COMMERCIAL vehicles world wide is massive.... If the Grenadier can come in even 10% over the competition, As long as it's a worthy vehicle... They should sell a fair number....
JLR keep banging on about a commercial Defender... However it's not really a commercial (I hope they prove me wrong)... It's just Commercial VED qualifying... Not VAT and more importantly BIK.... Like the D5 Commercial...(which in essence is what the 'Defender' is) It doesn't matter how bad it is, It can always get worse...

Prefer?

More like they need something and the 'go to' is no longer produced. Rgds.
