Here you will find the answers to the questions our customers ask us about this product:
User registration is done via a simple and convenient OAuth2 flow that your customers probably already know from other online services. They enter their VIN (Vehicle Identification Number), confirm their login details and grant you access to the above data points with just a few clicks.
As this is a push API, you will get notified every time your customer charges their vehicle – no matter how often that is. During a charge, you will get updates every two minutes.
All the customer needs is a compatible Mercedes-Benz vehicle and an active Mercedes me account.
