Motiv Power Systems will supply Spartan Motors with chassis to build electric walk-in vans, the companies said at the Work Truck Show in Indianapolis this week. Spartan will use the chassis to convert Ford E-450 vans to electric drive. Motiv, which makes chassis for other electric medium duty vehicles and buses, has redesigned its offering to work in delivery vans. For example, electronic controller boxes previously placed outside the frame rail were repositioned on the inside.
Fuso Trucks of America will use the leasing program starting in May for its new electric eCanter medium duty truck as a learning project before a more aggressive sales push next year. “We’re going to study the heck out of it and be interactive,” William Lyons, vice president of sales operations for Fuso Trucks of America, told Trucks.com.
XL Hybrids unveiled a hybrid conversion of the Ford F-250 pickup truck at the 2018 Work Truck Show in Indianapolis Tuesday. In addition to the gas-electric F-250 XLH, the company also showed off the Ford F-150 XLP, a plug-in hybrid truck. Adding a hybrid component to the powertrain can improve fuel economy by up to 25 percent while the plug-in hybrid can boost efficiency by up to 50 percent, Clay Siegert, XL’s chief operating officer, told Trucks.com.
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".
