Among the largest alliances is Ionity, a consortium that includes BMW Group, Ford Motor, Daimler, Porsche, Audi and Volkswagen brand. The partners seek to build a high-power electric vehicle charging network across Europe.

BMW is also creating an ecosystem centered on autonomous driving, with Intel, Magna International, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, Continental, Aptiv and Baidu, among others. And the chipmaker Nvidia is partners with Volvo Cars, Continental and Veoneer in autonomous driving.

Beyond that, BMW has joined its premium brand rival, Mercedes-Benz, to develop car-sharing; Honda is spending $2.75 billion to join General Motors' autonomous vehicle unit Cruise Automation; and VW and Ford have announced a tentative alliance, initially based on truck and van technology, that could expand into autonomous driving.

Perhaps as well, these alliances are important for the buying public. They will mean a 'similar experience' no matter the make of the car. Just think of the fun and games to be had if different makes of cars had controls such as clutch brake and accelerator in different positions.
