Ford F-150 Lightning under a Stop Build, Stop Ship Order

  • Ford has shut down production and shipping of the F-150 Lightning electric truck, citing a battery issue.
  • The automaker is currently investigating a potential problem with the battery, although it said there have been no accidents or injuries associated with it in customer use.
  • There is no timeline for when production of the highly popular EV will resume, Ford said.

Ford’s F-150 Lightning pickup truck has proved wildly popular in its first year of production, but customers already standing by to get one may have to wait a little longer. The automaker said today that it has detected a potential problem with the EV’s battery and has shut down both production of the trucks and shipping of those already built but not yet delivered to dealers. No date has been given for resumption of production.

The Lightning is built at Ford’s Rouge Electric Vehicle Center in Dearborn, Michigan, where production started in late April 2022. A Ford spokesperson told Car and Driver that the truck is under a “Stop Build and In-Transit Stop Ship” and explained, “As part of our pre-delivery quality inspections, a vehicle displayed a potential battery issue and we are holding vehicles while we investigate. We are not aware of any incidences of this issue in the field.” Motor Authority reported earlier today that F-150 Lightning pickups already at dealerships will be delivered to customers and are not affected by the order.

This is a developing story, and we will update with more details as they become available.
