If you think Tesla’s 300-plus-mile battery range for its electric cars is a big deal, here’s a new world record that triples that figure. On Tuesday, electric-bus startup Proterra announced a world record by test driving an electric bus for a whopping 1,100 miles on a single charge. The previous world record for electric vehicle range was 632 miles for an electric bus and 1,013 for an electric car.
A bold idea to make low-carbon transport more accessible just hit a major milestone. On Tuesday afternoon, startup Gogoro -- which makes electric scooters and builds battery-swapping networks to charge them -- announced that it has raised $300 million from a group of investors including Al Gore’s Generation Investment Management. Gogoro previously raised $182 million in two rounds, bringing its total funds raised to nearly $500 million.
“We’re trying to disrupt that thing over there,” said Bryan Hansel, CEO of electric delivery truck startup Chanje. Hansel nodded over to a brown boxy UPS truck -- the kind that roams city and suburban streets all over the U.S. -- parked on a street in downtown San Francisco. A few spaces behind the UPS truck sat a bright-white electric delivery truck from Chanje (pronounced Change), which was ready to be handed over to a customer.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
