  1. 1. What body style would appeal to you?

    • LWB Station Wagon as seen so far
      7
    • Double cab pickup (as seen in renderings)
      7
    • SWB station wagon (not mentioned as of yet)
      2

Thought it would be interesting to gauge what type of Grenadier body config appeals the most. Personally I think the Station Wagon looks brilliant. But I think I'd actually be temped by the practicality of a double cab pickup.

I think pick-ups and vans will be required anyway to max out the commercial interest👷‍♂️

To me, the thing that matters most is what taxation-class it falls into.

'Cars' worth over £40K get stung with swingeing VED for the first few years; they're also subject to CO2-emissions-based VED thereafter.

Vans/Commercials don't get hit by the first-years luxury-tax and pay a fixed VED irrespective of the CO2 emissions.

This can make a difference of at least £4K to the running-costs in the first four years!

I would love one but for what I used my defender for mud , tipping trailers moving cars , going fishing. Ect . I could not afford 40 k for a car . My 30 year old 90 does fine but I would not say no to one for free.

110 SW, by far the most practical of them

Wheel base is an inch too long. 109 SW is better.

Obviously, but the INEOS I am on about ;) Which may or may not be 110", but you get my drift :)

I'd like a modern 110SW, so the currently announced vehicle would do me, but the taxation class would be of interest. In my ideal world, I'd like it to be a commercial vehicle, so the VED is calculated differently. I can live with any speed restrictions; I have little sports cars if I want to go fast.

Either the station wagon type body or a longer wheelbase pickup like a 130 HCPU for me.

exactly the latter, for parts of europe we need an 'easy modifyable bed length' or even chassis extension to register it as 'commercial;'.
