Protect your investment with these handy EV battery care tips
ev charging in sunny weather

Electric vehicle batteries can be the source of a lot of anxiety -- most of which centers on their storage capacity. This can include range anxiety, and when a battery's performance degrades past a certain point, EV battery replacement costs.

There are also environmental concerns to consider. When your vehicle's juice box does eventually kick the bucket, EV battery recycling is an option and one that is becoming more and more efficient as time goes on. But with proper EV battery care, you can fend off the lithium reaper and keep your car's original power supply in place for years longer than it otherwise would be.

Ferraris are in high demand
RM Sotheby's Lost & Found Ferrari collection

1995 Ferrari F50 Rear 3/4 View Joshua Sweeney/Broad Arrow Auction / Broad Arrow Auctions

Recently, we reported about a herd of Italian thoroughbreds that were lost in time, spending fourteen years from 1990 to 2004 in a Floridian barn. Then, after Hurricane Charley laid waste to the Ferraris' farmhouse, the Italian stallions were moved to a weatherproof warehouse across from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, where they ironically laid motionless for nearly the next twenty years until the precious few who knew of this buried treasure decided to finally set these cars free in what RM Sotheby's deemed 'The Lost & Found Collection.'  With some incredibly captivating backstories, these 20 Ferraris were expected to bring in a king's ransom, and no one could have predicted that this collection would bring in enough to buy the whole kingdom.

UAW Strike cripples the Big Three – GM, Ford, and Stellantis productions grinds to halt
UAW members striking

Over 10,000 automotive workers have walked off the job as the United Auto Workers union begins strike action in Detroit. The UAW strike directly concern three of the world's biggest vehicle manufacturers, Ford, GM, and Stellantis - known as "the big three." Unions have christened the action "The Stand Up Strike," calling it "our generation’s answer to the movement that built our union, the Sit-Down Strikes of 1937."

So far, all three companies have offered a 20% pay rise to staff in an attempt to end the strike, but the UAW union has opted to decline that offer. The union organizing the strike has outlined a number of demands, with the main focus centering on a 40% pay increase stretched over four years for all of its 140,000 members. While that pay increase may seem drastic, union bosses claim it is comparable to raises executives have been awarded in recent years. Going forward, the union is demanding pay raises are also tied to inflation, which could see an equally significant increase in workers' pay rates going  forwards if recent inflation trends continue. Other demands include limits on how long staff can be categorized as temporary workers and denied union benefits, and the establishment of a four-day working week.
