What our customers say
“Integrating with the Smartcar platform saved us months, if not years of engineering work. Being able to use one API to increase our breadth of supported EVs is a huge benefit for us.”
“Without Smartcar, the process of integrating with electric cars would have been long, cumbersome, and resource-intensive. A small team like ours wouldn’t be able to achieve this on their own.”
“We chose Smartcar’s vehicle APIs to augment our EV Everywhere product capabilities, advancing our mission of promoting sustainable energy solutions for the energy and transportation sectors.”
“When looking for an electric vehicle API provider, Smartcar was the only option to fit the bill. Instead of calling out to tons of different vehicle APIs, we only need to call out to one.”
