Former head of sustainable vehicles for the Scottish Government and now a well-known motoring journalist, John Curtis has been appointed by Midlothian car dealership, Alex F Noble & Son Nissan, as a company ambassador, to support the firm’s new business charge in electric vehicles.
John is acknowledged as one of Scotland’s leading low emission vehicle experts with a weekly motoring column appearing in a Scottish national daily newspaper.
He also makes regular appearances on BBC Radio Scotland and TV whenever expert opinion on motoring issues is required.
John’s appointment with the Loanhead-based company will involve him utilising his considerable low emission vehicle expertise and well-known persona to help Alex F Noble & Son Nissan promote the value of low emission vehicles to Scottish businesses.
Alex F Noble & Son Nissan sales manager Gordon Campbell said: “With John having worked as head of sustainable vehicles at the Scottish Government and now running his own successful sustainable transport business, he is uniquely placed to support our EV team to engage with Scottish businesses and help them to understand the positive contribution electric vehicles can make to reducing costs and emissions.”
Mr Curtis added: “Low emission vehicles not only contribute to improved air quality, they are cheaper too and therefore make perfect sense for many businesses, large or small.
“The Nissan LEAF was the first electric car I drove and as such has a very special place in my heart, so I’m delighted to be working with Alex F Noble & Son Nissan to help spread the word about just how good these cars are. With running costs of 2p per mile, what’s not to like?”
