Smartcar is compatible with the BMW i3

Mobility apps and services use Smartcar’s APIs to verify their customers’ mileage, issue digital car keys, manage EV charging, and track fleets. Our platform allows your customers with BMW i3 vehicles to log in with their BMW ConnectedDrive account and connect their car to your app in just a few clicks.

What is Smartcar?

Smartcar is the leading developer platform for mobility businesses. Whether you need to track a vehicle’s location, verify its mileage, share a virtual key, start charging an EV, monitor a car’s fuel tank level, inspect the tire pressure, or check the engine oil life, Smartcar lets you do so with a single API request.

The best way to build apps for the BMW i3

Our RESTful APIs are fast, reliable, and easy to use with every tech stack. No matter which framework your mobile or web app is built in, our documentation and SDKs support every major language.
