This month, we published new resources for Smartcar’s electric vehicle APIs, launched early access to a new car brand in Europe, and achieved SOC 2 Type 1 compliance.

🔋 Smartcar for EVs

Have you ever wondered which electric vehicle models are compatible with Smartcar? Our brand-new Smartcar for EVs page has all the answers. Here, you can find an overview of all Smartcar-compatible EVs and learn about our API endpoints and product features specifically for electric cars.

🌍 A new car brand in Europe (early access)

Smartcar is now compatible with Audi vehicles in Germany, the United Kingdom, Sweden, and Norway. Smartcar customers who already have access to these countries will now see Audi alongside six other brands in Smartcar Connect. New customers can request early access starting today.
