Nissan has announced a new carsharing program for its updated Micra hatchback that will launch in Paris later this year, according to a report by Car Scoops.

The carsharing program will allow groups to purchase the hatchback together and then share it. The service uses an algorithm that utilizes social profiling and geo-localization technology to find and match compatible owners with similar driving needs, according to the report.

Those that are matched together can purchase the Micra and agree to an annual mileage limit of 15,000 kilometers, says the report.

“We are moving toward a future where car usage may be more flexible, social, and shared, Carlos Ghosn, CEO of Nissan Intelligent Get & Co Micra, told Car Scoops. “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."
