Nissan has announced a new car-sharing program for the updated Micra, which will allow groups to easily purchase the hatchback.
Dubbed Nissan Intelligent Get & Co Micra, company chief executive Carlos Ghosn said the program will launch in Paris later this year and looks to bring the power of social networking to the road.
The service uses an algorithm that uses social profiling and geo-localization technology to find and match compatible owners with similar driving needs. Those that are matched together can then move forward to get the keys to the Micra Acenta model installed with a manual tranmission, with monthly invoicing based on car usage.
Those that come together to purchase the Micra will have to agree to an annual mileage limit of 15,000 km.
Discussing the service, Ghosn said: “We are moving toward a future where car usage may be more flexible, social and shared. At Nissan, we’re pioneering new ways to allow drivers to enjoy the freedom and financial benefits of shared car ownership. And there is no better vehicle to launch this program than the all-new Micra, which embodies the vision of Nissan Intelligent Mobility.”
