North America Net revenues in 2019 were in line compared to the 2018, with favorable model mix and foreign exchange translation effects, offset by lower volumes and negative channel mix. Adjusted EBIT was up 7% compared to 2018, with record margin, due to favorable model mix, positive net price, industrial efficiencies, lower advertising costs and favorable foreign exchange effects, partially offset by lower volumes and increased product costs on new vehicles. 


The LATAM Net revenues in 2019 were up 4% with positive net pricing, including recognition of Brazilian indirect tax credits, partially offset by negative foreign exchange effects. Adjusted EBIT up 40%, due to higher Net revenues and industrial efficiencies, partially offset by purchasing cost inflation, higher import and export duties, as well as negative foreign exchange effects. 


The increase in APAC Net revenues in 2019 of 4% compared to 2018 was primarily due to favorable model mix and vehicle mix, positive net pricing due to reduced incentives, partially offset by lower volumes. The increase in APAC Adjusted EBIT was primarily due to increased Net revenues, as well as lower industrial costs, partially offset by lower China JV results. 


The decrease in EMEA Net revenues in 2019 compared to 2018 of 10% was primarily due to lower volumes. The decrease in EMEA Adjusted EBIT was primarily due to lower volumes, higher incentives, compliance and product costs, partially offset by reduced advertising costs and labor efficiencies resulting from restructuring actions, as well as favorable model and channel mix.


The decrease in Maserati Net revenues in 2019 of 40% compared to 2018 was primarily due to lower volumes. The decrease in Maserati Adjusted EBIT was primarily due to lower revenues and adjustments of residual values in the U.S. during the second quarter and higher incentives related to accelerated transition to China 6, partially offset by favorable model and market mix.
