LDV wants to expand its dealer network in the UK to over 60 in the next two years – and the man tasked with the job is vastly experienced commercial vehicle man Bill Laidlaw. Bill joins LDV from Bristol Street Motors in Stoke where he was the Ford commercial and business manager. Prior to this he was sales manager for New Commercial Vehicles at the Van Centre, Richmond.
OH goody! A new pick-up is due to be launched in 2020. A joint agreement has just been signed between PSA Group (Citroen/Peugeot/Vauxhall) and the Chinese company ChangAn Automobile. It will be a one tonne pick-up and promises to meet worldwide regulations – hopefully a good indicator that we’ll see the new pick-up over here. Indeed, while the press statement says the new pick-up will be offered to Chinese customers it will be available also PSA Group overseas markets.
OK, we love a pick up here, especially some of those great US monsters. But Ford’s big F-250 pick-up truck looks to be getting a bit greener with the fitment of electric hybrid technology from XL Hybrids. XL Hybrids says it has adapted its XL3 technology for Ford’s heavy duty F-250 trucks. So why would you want to do that? Well, Ford’s fleet customers were after better fuel efficiency. And with the hybrid tech fitted, the F-250 will see up to 25% better economy and improved CO2 emissions.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
