Smartcar automatically begins cooling or heating your vehicle early to reach the desired target temperature by the configured time.
Extend your range
Smartcar prolongs your driving range since the climate system will only have to maintain the existing temperature after pre-conditioning.
Smartcar avoids draining your battery by ensuring your car is plugged-in or has enough range to spare before turning on the climate controls.
Smartcar learns your driving patterns and automatically creates a schedule to bring your car to the right temperature before your next commute.
Enough range when you need it.
Set a schedule
Smartcar lets you set how many miles you need by a certain time and works backwards to ensure you have enough range by then. It also offers a powerful scheduler to easily initiate your vehicle’s charging during preferred hours.
Smartcar increases battery longevity by charging your car only to the required range for the following day with extra miles to spare for unexpected detours.
Off-peak hours begin earlier on weekends than weekdays. These hours also vary between the summer, winter, and even holidays. Smartcar analyzes your local electric rates and begins charging at the best time each day.
Smartcar learns your driving patterns and automatically creates a schedule to charge your car at the right times to reduce your electric bill while ensuring you have enough range for the day.
