Top Auto Groups Combine in Major Industry Merger

The group will represent nearly every major automaker in the world

The auto industry is shifting into a new gear this week in a move that brings the global sector together in a single trade group.

The industry’s two largest associations, the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers and Global Automakers, announced Wednesday that they will merge to form the Alliance for Automotive Innovation, which will represent nearly every car-maker that sells vehicles in the United States.

Previously, AAM members included the “big three” Detroit car-makers and several major foreign ones, and Global Automakers represented the U.S. operations of automakers based in other countries. There was little overlap among the two groups’ members, with the exception of Toyota, which belonged to both.
