Announcing the appointments, EVA Scotland director, Neil Swanson said: “We are delighted to welcome our three new directors to the Board of EVA Scotland. All will help take the organisation forward at this most important time as Scotland transitions towards all-electric transportation. These appointments will strengthen the Board in its role of representing the interests of its members and support the rapidly growing number of electric vehicle owners and drivers across Scotland.

“There are many challenges and opportunities facing the Scotland in its move away from fossil fuel to all electric transportation. EVA Scotland is at the heart of the decision making processes that involve and progress policies affecting industry, commerce and of course its members.

“Every day, greater numbers of private motorist and those in public and private transportation industries are making the transition, switching from the internal combustion engine to greener forms of transportation. This is essential in our support of our government’s climate change commitments and, importantly, improvement of the air we breathe.

“In particular, as demand for electric vehicles continues to grow exponentially and at speed, EVA Scotland’s role in influencing policy and decision-making at the highest level has never been more essential.”

The EVA Scotland board of directors now comprises:

Neil Swanson, Neil MacLennan, Robert Smith plus the three new directors mentioned above.
