The Energy API allows your application to remotely receive the vehicle's latest recharge status information. Information such as electric range and battery charge level during charging, estimated charging time needed to charge the battery to the set limit, charging connection status featuring whether the charging cable is plugged in as well as the type of charger used (AC/DC), and charging system status to identify if the vehicle is charging or not, is included.
In addition, the Recharge status endpoint enables the retrieval of all recharge information in the form of a list, provided the corresponding endpoints' required scopes are approved.
The status data for recharging is updated both when the vehicle is parked (key-off) and when a charging session is initiated.
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.
