Ford halts F-150 Lightning production, citing battery issues
Ford recently announced that they have halted production of their highly anticipated electric F-150 Lightning pickup truck due to battery issues. This is a major setback for the company, as the F-150 Lightning was set to be the first all-electric full-size pickup truck in the US.
The F-150 Lightning was first announced in May 2021, and was set to be released in Spring 2022. The truck was highly anticipated, as it promised to deliver a powerful performance and a range of up to 300 miles on a single charge.
However, Ford has now announced that they have put a stop to production of the F-150 Lightning due to battery issues. The company has not given any further details about the battery issues, but it is believed that the issues are related to the size and weight of the batteries.
Ford has said that they are working to resolve the issues as quickly as possible and that they will resume production of the F-150 Lightning once the issues have been resolved.
This news is a major setback for Ford, as the F-150 Lightning was set to be a major milestone in the company’s electric vehicle journey. The truck was set to be a major competitor in the electric pickup truck market and was expected to be a major driver of electric vehicle sales.
It is unclear how long the production halt will last, but it is likely to have a significant impact on Ford’s electric vehicle plans. In the meantime, the company will have to focus on resolving the battery issues and getting the F-150 Lightning back on track.
