Introducing the Smartcar EV API

Karthik Bhaskara

Sr. Software Engineer

Today, we're thrilled to give you a sneak peek of our two newest API endpoints. Meet the Smartcar electric vehicle API. 🔋⚡

Our EV API endpoints allow you to retrieve an electric vehicle's current battery level and to know whether the car is currently charging. All this works on most battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEV) across brands and without aftermarket hardware.

🔋 The EV battery endpoint lets you access:

  • The state of charge (SOC) of an EV battery, in percent
  • The remaining range, in kilometers or miles

⚡ The EV charging status endpoint returns whether an electric vehicle:

  • Is or isn't plugged in
  • Is charging, isn't charging, or is fully charged

Our EV API allows you to retrieve EV data and manage charging with ease. Energy and utility providers can better manage residential EV charging to balance electric grid load. EV charging networks can provide estimated charging times, automatic charging schedules, and EV trip planning for their customers.

Visit our Electric Vehicle API page to learn more about compatible vehicles, latest API endpoints, popular use cases, and more!

Everything you need to know about car APIs. Delivered monthly.
