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.”

Brian Grunkemeyer

CEO at FlexCharging

“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.”

Shwan Lamei

CEO at Emulate

“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.”

Devashish Paul

CEO at BluWave-ai

“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.”

Casey Donahue

Founder at Optiwatt

“Smartcar has enabled us to level up our EV Managed Charging platform for electric utilities by filling an important technology gap — connecting to the vehicle.”
