Mitsubishi ‘dropping’ caused li-ion battery probs

Mitsubishi Motors has said the overheating of lithium ion batteries used in its Outlander SUV plug-in hybrids was likely to have been caused by cells that were damaged when they fell to the ground during production.
The automaker halted production and shipments of the model in March after a lithium ion battery overheated in one of the vehicles.

Mitsubishi Motors’ managing director Ryugo Nakao toldReuters, “It is not a problem in the batteries themselves.”

According to Mitsubishi, plant workers may have dropped certain cells, thereby damaging them. Those cells were supposed to be removed from the production line, but some may have been included in the batteries. Tests concluded that those batteries overheated when charged.
