The losses for 2006 operations for Ford were over $16.4 billion. Ford analysts said that the further prospects this year do not look encouraging and the company is expected to make further loses, after its business restructuring and the poor forecast for Ford car sales in the North American market. Ford's losses in 2006 exceeded $4380 per vehicle sold and were even worse that Wall Street analysts had forecasted. Ford took the biggest hit in it's native North American auto market where losses totalled to $6.2 billion compared to the losses of $1.5 billion in 2005. Ford is the auto company that was the first to create and launch the car assembly line and its brand and name have long been a synonym for American cars. Yet, the car maker said it does not expect to make any profits until 2009. Ford motor company blamed fierce competition with Japanese car makers in American market and sub optimal auto dealers sales volume strategy.
