National Express currently has customers in all of divisions using electric vehicles in their fleets and possesses a thorough understanding for replicating and expanding our EV footprint across North America on a much larger scale.
“We are delighted to have Nick step into this newly created role of leading our growing electric vehicle portfolio in North America. This is especially noteworthy as we approach Earth Day on April 22 as it is a testament of National Express’ commitment to creating a greener future,” said Gary Waits, CEO of National Express. “We are no stranger to the world of EVs as we are currently active in the EV market in all three of our divisions.
