Smartcar is a company building an API for cars funded by a16z, NEA and Energize Capital.
We enable companies like Turo to monitor a car’s status and remotely lock/unlock the doors for a contact-free rental expereince. We are always expanding to new makes and models of cars and we’d love your help!

What are we asking for?

Building and maintaining our APIs is a complex endeavor. Smartcar operates a research fleet of vehicles across brands, models, and geographies to ensure we can provide the best product possible. This is where you come in. We’d like to use your car in order to verify our ability to do things like:

  • Read your car’s odometer
  • View the amount of fuel/battery your car has remaining
  • Obtain your car’s VIN

Perks of being part of the Research Fleet

  • 💰 You will receive $250 for the 6 months that your car is part of the fleet
  • 🧥 A Smartcar Research Fleet sweater
  • 🙋 Assistance setting up your car’s connected services
