Hello Grenadier Friends!

I was curious if anyone had any idea about how one would trade in a vehicle when purchasing the Grenadier, as it’s not going through a dealership like we would normally do here in the US. Anyone have any thoughts or insights about this? Thanks in advance!

Thoughts: Perhaps they will found sth. like an "Ineos Automotive Recycling Ltd." or so. The dealership makes some photos, collects the data of your car and later you get an offer from the Ltd  and have to bring in the car.

Just one of many ways to do that.

If you are in the USA, Ineos will be going through a dealer network.  I assume the dealer would take your car in as a trade.

Second what @ADVAW8S says about the dealership.  And is the US there's always CarMAX, which I generally use to baseline my trade-in value before going to the dealer that I'm purchasing from.  Note that getting the dealer you purchase from to use your vehicle as trade-in at the same value as the CarMAX purchase prices is a win for you because the trade-in value is subtracted from the selling price when calculating sales tax.

Yes CarMax is definitely a viable option. Thanks!

I know from the webinar Ineos anticipates announcing dealers and whatnot, but do any insiders here have any inside information? I’m very curious to see if they attach themselves to one particular brand (eg BMW, MB) or smaller, independent setups (maybe even a chain of non-automotive brands). I know the market is different but it will be interesting if they hook up with we perceive in the States to be luxury brands or more blue collar types.

"Have a vehicle to sell? Explore what it could be worth using our configurator’s part exchange calculator. Then arrange this directly with your local retail partner when the time comes."


When ordering (in the UK), there was a question asked about part exchange and a Web page linked in with Auto trader (if I've remembered correctly). You input your reg or make/model, answered a few questions, and it gave you a range of valuations based on condition.
