Net sales $149,558,000,000 up by $5,481,000,000 or 4% (2014: $144,077,000,000) primarily thanks to:
* The North America, which automotive revenue increased by $9,500,000,000 (the North America industry volume improved compared with a year ago; the U.S. industry volume totaled 17.8 million units, up 1 million units. U.S.retail share increased one-tenth of a percentage point to 13.0% driven by strong demand for newest products, including F-150 and Mustang. The Company achieved highest annual sales in the United States since 2005. Ford remained the best-selling vehicle brand in the United States and Ford F-Series was the best-selling vehicle in the United States for the 34th straight year).
Such high increase from The North America was partially offset by decrease from:
* South America, which revenue decreased by $3,000,000,000 reflecting the continued deterioration of the business environment in South America (The South America industry volume, at 4.2 million units, was down 1.1 million units. Most of this was in Brazil).
* Europe by $1,300,000,000, which was impacted adversely by the strong U.S. dollar. In 2015, Ford became Europe’s best-selling commercial vehicle brand, reflecting the strength of renewed Transit line-up and Ranger as well as dedicated dealer network support.

$3,425,000,000), increase income from business segments by $3,507,000,000 (primarily in North America by $1,902,000,000). The negative impact on net income was income taxes, which were higher by $2,877,000,000 than in 2014.

Opinion about the company
Fundamentally, it is good company, which is oriented on long-term perspectives. Constant market share over last three years proves good company’s competiveness. However, the Company results are heavily impacted by external economic factors, including the pace of economic growth and factors such as the availability of consumer credit and cost of fuel.
