The American company Ford is forced to recall almost two dozen F-150 Lightning electric pickups. The reason is a defective battery, which can lead to a fire.
What is known
Company last month found outthat some pickups released in January 2023 may be equipped with defective batteries. The reason was eliminated and already on March 13, Ford will resume production vehicles at the plant in Michigan.
Defective traction batteries can spontaneously ignite spontaneously. The company recorded one case of fire. Fortunately, no one was hurt. Problematic batteries can be installed in 18 F-150 Lightning electric pickup trucks that have already been handed over to customers.
Customers will be called to dealerships where Ford experts will perform free vehicle diagnostics. If a defect is found, all measures will be taken to eliminate it.
