Thousands of owners effected

Toyota was forced to recall over a million more vehicles in addition to those models they previously included in the statement. The recall went into effect in January after a possible fault in the fuel pumps could cause engines to stall. It added even more vehicles to the possible list of faulty pumps bringing the total to 1.8 million earlier this month. Engine stalling is known to cause the risk of crash to increase, although Toyota is not saying if any have happened because of this.

Ford introduced a line up of new electric vehicles last year and now they will begin rolling out the third fully-electric vehicle in their arsenal. Ford will begin selling an all-electric Transit cargo van beginning in 2022. The automaker also said it will produce an electric sport utility car and an all-electric F-150 pick up truck. They join the growing trend of automakers that are committed to reducing their carbon footprint in the coming years by making fully-electric vehicles more diverse and accessible.
