Internal or charging fault could cause the High Voltage (HV) battery pack to vent hot gas.
As such gases have not been routed away from other components, they will cause them to exceed their designed working temperatures. Overheating of components such as the fuel tank and fuel lines will increase the risk of the vehicle catching fire.
The Ford Kuga Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) models affected by this recall were fitted with a High Voltage (HV) battery pack and manufactured between 1 July 2019 and 15 July 2020.
