Nissan has revealed plans to launch ‘Nissan Intelligent Get & Go Micra’, a car sharing scheme which will match people through their digital profiles.

The company said it hoped to launch the product by the end of 2016, initially in Paris, with their aim of having cars on the road by April 2017.

According to Nissan, the service is based on an algorithm that uses social profiling and geo-localisation technology to match compatible owners with complementary driving needs to form a digital shared ownership community.

Scheme users will be charged a monthly invoice, based on car usage.

The service will use the new Nissan Micra Acenta 0.9O MT, and will include insurance, servicing, access to the online matching tool, smartphone app and in-car technology. Sharing groups will need to agree upon an annual mileage limit of 15,000 km.

Carlos Ghosn, chief executive officer of Nissan, 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.”
