Lyft and Uber proposed tax rejected

Chicago’s mayor, Lori Lightfoot, has rejected a proposed tax on ride-hailing services by Uber and Lyft. She accused the ride-sharing services of trying to resist regulation by stirring up racial tensions. Last month, she proposed raising $40 million from a traffic congestion tax on certain ride-hailing trips. Uber and Lyft both hit back saying the move would mainly hurt low-income resident in the city’s majority black neighborhoods.

Ford has unveiled their newest addition to their vehicle lineup after much anticipation. The new Mustang Mach-E SUV is the first electric mustang in their collection. The company stresses that they are not replacing the old mustang, rather they are “adding to their stables.” On a full charge, the car can go up to 300 miles and the starting cost will be around $45,000.
