This month, we’re excited to announce that Smartcar is compatible with 112 million vehicles worldwide! The Smartcar platform is also GDPR compliant and compatible with a new car brand in Europe.

🚘 Compatible with over 112 million cars

Just two months ago, we announced that Smartcar was compatible with 72 million vehicles in the United States. Since then, we have launched support for 25 new countries in Europe as well as compatibility with five new car brands in Canada, three new brands in Europe, and one new brand in the United States. Today, we’re proud to reveal that the Smartcar platform is compatible with 112 million vehicles across the United States, Canada, and Europe!

🔒 GDPR compliance

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is digital privacy legislation that aims to give citizens of the European Union more control over their personal data. Smartcar is proud to be GDPR compliant. Over the past several years, the Smartcar team has built a secure, consent-based platform that processes only the necessary data to serve our customers. To learn more about the steps we take to protect personal data and privacy, visit our data security page or reach out to us at support@smartcar.com.

🌍 A new car brand in Europe

Smartcar is now compatible with Renault vehicles in Europe. Smartcar customers who already have access to our APIs in Europe will now see Renault among eight other car brands in Smartcar Connect. Others can email support@smartcar.com to get started today.

💡 Other updates

  • Vehicle re-authentication just got easier: Previously, vehicle owners had to go through the entire Smartcar Connect flow if they changed their connected services account password. Now, Smartcar Connect will skip the welcome, brand selection, and permission screens when car owners log in to re-authenticate their vehicle.
  • A new connected services app: Smartcar Connect now allows vehicle owners with Smartcar-compatible BMW vehicles to log in with their My BMW account in addition to their BMW ConnectedDrive account.
