APIs/Connected Vehicle APIVersion 1



The Connected Vehicle API allows your application to both receive data from the vehicle and send commands to the vehicle. It includes vehicle status, diagnostics, statistics and metadata for a complete end-user experience. The commands include functions such as flash the lights, sound the horn, start & stop the engine and lock & unlock the vehicle. You are also able to retrieve a complete list of any commands that you have sent.

You can download the OpenAPI specification as a JSON file.

You will find information about the endpoints exposed by the API in the Endpoints section in the menu. Information such as required scopes, headers and request/response examples.

All APIs on Volvo Cars Developer Portal are official public APIs, start using them for free today. If you are using the Consumer API (vocmo), migrate as soon as possible to the Connected Vehicle API. The Consumer API is deprecated and will be removed soon.
