Ford has paused production and shipments of its all-electric F-150 Lightning pickup due to a potential battery issue.

Ford spokes person Emma Bergg declined to elaborate but wanted to reassure owners.


Ford is unaware of any incidents or issues associated with the potential battery issue, Bergg said. There is no stop-sale for vehicles already on dealer lots, meaning dealers can continue to sell vehicles they have on hand.
