So, remember that fire at Ford’s World Headquarters? Well, it has caused the automaker to postpone its October 2016 sales reporting. The Blue Oval explained in a press release:

“The fire at an electrical substation interrupted power to Ford World Headquarters and the adjacent Ford Credit office buildings, as well as to one of the company’s main data centers that the company and its dealers use to report and track sales. While battery backups worked as intended to protect data saved in the system, the lack of full power resulted in the data center being shut down for most of Monday’s business day, and dealers were unable to report final-day sales.”

Ford “expects to announce October U.S. sales results later this week”. So, stay tuned to Ford Authority for October Ford sales figures and more Ford news.
