According to a recent study carried out by the RAC, nearly 6 out of 10 (57%) drivers in the UK are more dependent on their cars now than they were in March 2020, before the COVID-19 pandemic struck. With this increased reliance on cars, a second lockdown and the colder weather of the autumn and winter months, the threat of faulty car batteries is a very real issue. For convenience and safety, motorists should make sure they have a reliable car battery; and Varta batteries in the UK are known as being one of the most dependable brands around. If you're having trouble starting your car or your battery won't hold its charge, you can order a new Varta battery online and have it delivered to your doorstep with no fuss through Orius Batteries.
- During the UK's coronavirus lockdown period, many drivers were unwilling or unable to use their cars as often as they might usually have done. And when they did drive, it was more often than not only for short trips. Perhaps not surprisingly, this has led to widespread battery issues, and the demand for new car battery replacements has, as a result, increased drastically. If you've been searching "where to buy a new car battery", you can find affordable, high-quality replacements here at Orius.
- Italjet has announced that the release of its much-awaited Dragster scooter will be delayed till the 1st quarter of 2021, probably in around February or March, instead of its expected release this year. Unsurprisingly, the delay is largely caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and its huge impact on the scooter's production. The pandemic has caused plenty of problems, not solely in the motorcycle industry, but in the automobile, accessories, and motorcycle battery industries too, to name but a few. Luckily, production across industry hasn't come to a complete standstill, though. So if you're awaiting the release of the Dragster but looking for the best motorcycle battery in the interim for your existing scooter, supplies are still available from trusted sources.
- UK vehicle registrations for 2020 are set to reach 1.5 million units, which is a huge drop from the 2.3 million units registered last year. As showrooms in England reopened after the second lockdown, dealers began looking to bump up their sales by offering huge discounts, which will be running throughout December. Customers can expect a discount on average of around 7% on new cars, but the VW Passat saloon is set to have the biggest price cuts with up to 22% off the full listing price. While you're unlikely to find such huge discounts if you're looking for a VW Passat car battery, or indeed any other VW battery, you can still benefit from great prices in reliable online stores like Orius Batteries.
- The UK government plans to fast-track its ban on internal combustion engines (ICEs), bringing it forward to 2030 from 2040. This spells trouble for anyone looking at buying a new diesel/ petrol engine vehicle in ten years' time. Although the sales of cars equipped with ICEs will be banned, current petrol or diesel car owners can rest easy, as it looks like all of the parts and accessories that they need for their vehicles, such as a quality Bosch battery, will still be available for purchase. To get the best Bosch car battery price on the market today, just check out our online store here at Orius Batteries.
