Ford recalling 18 F-150 Lightning electric pickups after battery fire

Ford is recalling 18 F-150 Lightnings to address a problem with their battery packs that prompted production of the electric pickup to be idled for more than a month.

The automaker was set to resume building the full-size trucks on Monday.

Ford became aware of the issue with the pack when a truck parked in a holding lot at the Dearborn, Michigan, factory prior to shipment caught fire on Feb. 4.

The cause was identified as a manufacturing defect that has since been resolved.

The F-150 Lightning's battery cells are supplied by from a factory in Georgia operated by SK On.

"Production is on track to resume Monday with clean stock of battery packs," a Ford Spokeswoman said.
