NISSAN has announced a pioneering new service that will transform the traditional car sharing industry.
NISSAN INTELLIGENT GET & GO MICRA will give people the opportunity to part-own a new Nissan Micra.
Launched by Nissan Chairman and CEO Carlos Ghosn at the Web Summit in Lisbon, Portugal, the service uses social media to profile-match consumers and form next-generation car sharing communities.
Users will then be invoiced monthly based on their levels of car usage.
The 100 percent digital experience will debut in Paris later this year, with the first cars expected on the road by April 2017.
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 programme than the all-new Micra, which embodies the vision of Nissan Intelligent Mobility.”
The new service is born out of Nissan’s Intelligent Mobility vision, which provides a framework for how cars are powered, driven and integrated into society – all while staying focused on creating more enjoyable driving experiences.
The NISSAN INTELLIGENT GET & GO MICRA service will include insurance, servicing, access to the online matching tool, smartphone app and in-car technology.
