    Two prominent industry trade groups, Global Automakers and the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers, have merged to create the Alliance for Automotive Innovation.

    The new entity aims to speed advancement in transportation through public policy, stakeholder engagement and greater public understanding, it said in a statement Wednesday.

    "For almost a generation now, you've had two very successful trade associations that have created the framework and the foundation that will allow us to move forward," said John Bozzella, CEO of the new organization and former CEO of Global Automakers. David Schwietert, who led the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers, is chief policy officer of the new group.

    Global Automakers, which represents the U.S. operations of foreign-based manufacturers, and the Auto Alliance, which counts the Detroit 3, BMW Group and Mercedes-Benz among its members, have long worked together on policy issues. Toyota Motor Corp. belongs to both groups.

    Interesting to see them all in bed together as one group as the market rushes toward EVs and unified standards.

    I was wondering how issues like trade, currency, foreign monetary manipulation, etc. would be addressed. I guess they're going to stay clear of it and leave it to others (and former colleagues, besides).
