Ford Motor Company has recalled as many as 464 Mustang Mach-E electric cars over a potential fault that results in unintended acceleration. US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has said that the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E electric crossovers could have a software issue, which results in unintended acceleration, unintended deceleration, loss of power etc. The automaker claims that the impacted Mustang Mach-E EVs were manufactured between 3rd October 2020 and 26th May 2021.

NHTSA also said that the software could potentially ignore the electric vehicle's unintended acceleration or deceleration. Also, it could fail to recognize vehicle movement on the secondary axle or incorrectly detect a lateral hazard on the primary axle., said NHTSA in a statement. The statement also reveals that a software update, which was intended for a later model year was mistakenly pushed to some 2021 Ford Mach E electric crossovers, causing the car's software to incorrectly report torque figures at zero on the secondary axle.
