Our mission

Unlocking freedom of movement for everyone

At Smartcar, we’re driven by a simple yet powerful mission: to unlock freedom of movement for everyone. We believe that equitable access to mobility is more than just a convenience — it's a modern right. We envision a world where mobility transcends barriers, where every individual, regardless of their background or circumstances, can enjoy the advantages of unrestricted mobility to enrich their lives. After all, transportation isn't just about getting from point A to point B; it's also about economic success, independence, and personal fulfillment.

Smartcar plays a pivotal role in enabling freedom of movement by providing the leading API for connected cars. Our API enables easy integration to cars, powering innovative mobility apps and solutions that improve lives. Whether it's helping individuals gain access to transportation, save money on auto insurance premiums, earn a living through car-sharing businesses, or contribute to environmental sustainability through electric vehicle usage, Smartcar drives a diverse range of innovative solutions that enhance individual and collective mobility experiences.

We also champion freedom of choice for vehicle drivers, ensuring they retain control over their data while accessing a wide range of mobility solutions tailored to their needs. Our platform prioritizes a consent-driven, privacy-first approach, ensuring individuals maintain full control over their data and can trust that their privacy is safeguarded. Through collaborative efforts between vehicle owners, automakers, and developers, we're powering innovations that redefine how we move, all while prioritizing consumer choice, transparency, privacy, and security.

Committed to driving positive change and leaving a lasting impact on mobility, we pave the way for a future where freedom of movement belongs to all.
