LG under investigation over EV battery fires

U.S. regulators have opened an investigation into electric- and hybrid-vehicle batteries made by LG Energy Solution after five automakers issued recalls over fire risks.

The probe covers an estimated 138,324 vehicles that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said could catch fire when parked or in use, according to documents posted Tuesday on the agency’s website.

NHTSA opened the probe, known as an equipment query, on April 1.

A "dream" car would be a Gen 2 Kuga aka Braaimaster with the ICE gubbins thrown out & these LG batteries installed.
