Ford said leaking battery acid around the battery's negative terminal could cause the battery monitoring system sensor to fail. As a result, the battery could overheat, presenting a potential fire risk.

In Germany, the company will recall 101,000 vehicles, and in the UK, 56,000, with the remainder spread across Ford's key European markets, the spokesman said.
