Production numbers


yep, plus add in the difficulties, logistics of importing anything automotive to North America. There are lot of lucrative markets way easier to access. That said North America might be a very profitable market long term but I'll bet the price goes up 50% by the time it gets here.
If your lucky enough to get one from manuf, I bet secondary market these things are going to go through the roof....
Hi All,

I've been trying to find estimated production numbers for the Grenadier - does anyone have any confirmed numbers of how many they're aiming to build each year?

I think it will be a great platform, but if they're only going to build 5k a year I don't see the aftermarket going out out of their way to design products for them.


29,000 according to what I was told today. The US market will receive 1/3 of that number.

5k is the US allotment I believe. Think about how much hes fronted, and 5000 with people buying spendy options up to 80,000 average is only 400 million USD gross.

small bird told me they were targeting 50k annual with 30% of them BEV by MY2025. That is a big number considering the "original" Defender sold the most in 1997 at 39K units. Last few years of production they were sub 10K units annual.

Thought I heard that Magna is building them. Lots cheaper to hire a factory than build a factory.

Correct - they took over a Mercedes factory in Hambach that was used to build the Smart Car. So, they had a pretty experienced workforce and a nearly state-of-the-art facility ready to go. The partnership with Magna on the design and construction side aligns as Magna and Mercedes do the G-Wagen. It would have been ego/pride over good business sense to not take advantage of the opportunity that the factory represented I think.
