Electric Vehicle Status

Get real-time range and charging insights from battery electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles.

Enable smart charging services for Mercedes-Benz drivers

Our push API Electric Vehicle Status provides you with status data from individual Mercedes-Benz battery electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles. This data will be updated near real-time and pushed to you based on relevant events to enable smart charging solutions.

Get access to the battery charge and remaining range of the connected electric vehicles. Knowing these current values, the next charging stop can be predicted. By integrating it into your application, drivers of electric vehicles can be proactively contacted to plan the next stop at a charging station. Also for planning long-distance trips this API is interesting, taking into account individual offers at the right time.
