Ford Motor Company experienced a slight drop in market share in September 2015 in the European Union, losing 0.1 percentage points for a market share of 8.0 percent. The drop comes despite Ford increasing sales volume 8.0 percent to 108,684 units in September.
The drop can be explained by the fact that The Blue Oval’s 8.0 percent sales growth rate in September was lower than the industry’s 9.6 percent growth rate, resulting in 1,279,526 vehicles sold.
