Ford Manufacturers Defective Batteries for the Ford Lightning Vehicles
There are many problems with defective batteries on the Ford Lightning vehicles that make them lemon cars. The F-150 Ford Lightning production has had issues, since the lithium-ion batteries have been known to catch on fire, which is a potential cause of personal injuries to any owner of the vehicle. One problem is that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) noted that the problem is that the fires from lithium-ion electric batteries are cause by defects in the batteries themselves. The batteries for the Ford F-150 Lightning are provided by the supplier SK On at the Atlanta plant, and assembled in the Ford Rawsonville plant in Ypsilanti. Other problems that affect the Ford F-150 are that the trucks have no pickup when shifting into drive, and they can gradually lose their forward motion power while driving, which is a major safety hazard.
Why Don’t the Auto Manufacturer’s Test Their Electric Car Batteries Before They Are Sold?
It is decidedly hard and difficult to predict when an electric car battery will go bad. In fact, it would be nearly impossible to predict, but that would not be the case at all if the batteries made for electric vehicles were the best of the bunch. In many ways, an electric car battery can be a crap shoot, meaning that there can be many different types of defects in and on those batteries. The electric car battery is made and developed with electric cars in mind. But there are many components that can go wrong to make the batteries unsuitable to be used in any type of electric car. Most people don’t realize what goes into making an electric battery. Electric car batteries are made up of a variety of cathode materials and additional structures, which can include components related to:
- Glass and metal seals
- Stainless steel case
- Carbon cathode
- Current collector
- Terminal cap
- Current collector tab
- Lithium anode
- Carbon cathode
- Anode screen
- High temperature shrink wrap
Any of these electric battery components can have a defect, and then the batteries will be at a higher risk of catching on fire while being driven and in use. The liquid cathode components have high energy density, and need to be carefully constructed, or can have defects when they are used. The electrolytes are reactive, and can conduct significant voltage delays. The liquid electrolytes can be considered strong oxidants, and do react with water to make a hazardous compound.
