Magic mirror

The Extended Vehicle API can be used to power a global insurance solution, or in the case of one of our developers, it can power a smart mirror connected to their own personal vehicle.

Neutral servers

A collaboration aimed at securing and making car data available to third parties– without the need for agreements with individual manufacturers. Very soon Volvo Cars aims to offer the Extended Vehicle API across a number of neutral server parties.


Whose data can be accessed through our APIs?

Access to a vehicles data is only by the explicit consent of the car’s owner. A Volvo cars owner who wishes to use your service will have to give consent with their Volvo ID in order to link their private data to your service.

Why do I have to publish my app to get access to users cars?

Due to our commitment to the security and privacy of our users’ data, at this stage the granting of full credentials is a manual process. Please be aware this can take 14-21 days. As we ramp up our API offerings this process will change.

In which countries are the APIs available?

They can be used with test credentials around the world. However, when published, only cars in the Europe / Middle East / Africa regions are available. We are working to bring other regions online.
