Ford Recalls 35,000 Mustang Mach-E EVs in the US Due to Power Loss


Summary: Ford announced the recall of 35,000 Mustang Mach-E electric vehicles in the US over concerns of overheating high voltage battery main contactors, resulting in a loss of driving power.

Ford Motor has initiated a recall of 35,000 Mustang Mach-E electric vehicles in the US. The recall is focused on the 2021 and 2022 model year Mach-E vehicles with extended range. This follows an investigation by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) into Ford’s previous recall of 49,000 Mach-E vehicles in June 2022. The initial recall addressed the issue by updating the software. However, after the investigation, Ford has now issued a new recall specifically for extended range vehicles, which involves replacing the high voltage battery junction box. Ford has reported 107 instances of high voltage contactor over-heating that resulted in a loss of driving power after the completion of the June 2022 recall. Fortunately, there have been no reported crashes or injuries related to this issue.
