BMW Will Expand US Diesel Offerings

Just because it’s much harder to get a diesel approved for sale in the US in 2017 doesn’t mean automakers are giving up on the idea entirely. BMW has confirmed that it will bring a diesel-powered 5 Series to the US, although it’s unclear when it will arrive. It appears the diesel 5 Series onslaught will be limited to a single model, the BMW 540d. It will probably arrive as part of the 2018 model year, which also includes the performance-oriented M550i. https://www.cnet.com/roadshow/news/bmw-will-expand-us-diesel-offerings-with-oil-burning-5-series/#ftag=CAD590a51e Home This video was produced by YT…

Uber Gives Benefits To British Drivers

In the past few years, Uber has received a lot of criticism for how it treats its drivers, especially because all drivers are labeled “self-employed” instead of “employees,” meaning they receive no benefits from Uber. Now the ridesharing company is providing a benefits package to its drivers in the UK, including injury and illness coverage. The health plan will be available to drivers who have made at least 500 trips. Drivers then contribute £2 per week to receive the benefits. https://www.cnet.com/news/uber-brings-benefits-to-british-drivers/#ftag=CAD590a51e Home This video was produced by YT Wochit Business…
