The corresponding recall campaign has already started.

Ford began sending out messages to buyers of the Ford Kuga PHEV hybrid crossover to visit the nearest service center. The recall was due to a problem with the battery pack overheating, which could lead to a fire in the vehicle.

All Ford Kuga PHEV plug-in hybrids manufactured before June 26, 2020 are eligible. Interestingly, the batteries will be replaced one at a time – in the same order in which the cars were purchased. According to the company, the campaign will run from late December 2020 to March 2021.

Until the moment of repair, car owners were offered to switch the car to EV Auto mode and no longer touch the drive mode selection system. Together with free repairs, Ford Kuga PHEV owners will receive fuel coupons worth € 500 / pounds.
