Ford Motor Co. is recalling 7,609 Mustang Mach-E crossovers in Canada following a safety defect that could cause the electric vehicle to lose power.
The automaker is recalling 48,924 in the United States for the same reason.
In addition to the recall, Ford Canada said in an email to Automotive News Canada that dealers can still sell new Mach-E crossovers, they just can’t deliver the vehicles as they arrive.
The automaker, in the statement, said the vehicle's high-voltage battery main contactors could overheat, leading to a malfunction that could cause the vehicle to either not start or immediately lose propulsion power while in motion.
Ford said the affected vehicles were built from May 27, 2020, through May 24, 2022, at its plant in Cuautitlan, Mexico.
