Python API for the Volkswagen WeConnect Services. If you are not a developer and ended up here you probably want to check out a project using this library (see below).

Projects in which the library is used

  • VWsFriend: VWsFriend records statistics about your car (charging sessions, battery, trips, fueling, etc.) and displays them nicely. It also allows you to forward data from the car to other applications such as A better routeplanner and allows you to integrate your car into Apple HomeKit
  • WeConnect-cli: A commandline interface to interact with WeConnect
  • WeConnect-MQTT: A MQTT Client that provides WeConnect data to the MQTT Broker of your choice (e.g. your home automation solution such as ioBroker, FHEM or Home Assistant)


Use this API with care. If you use it wrong (e.g. too many logins, repeated login attempts with wrong password, ...) your account may get blocked.


pip3 install weconnect[Images]

The minimum required python version is 3.8

Getting started

Tested with

  • Volkswagen ID.3 Modelyear 2021
  • Volkswagen Passat GTE Modelyear 2021

Login & Consent

WeConnect-python is based on the new WeConnect ID API that was introduced with the new series of ID cars. If you use another car or hybrid you probably need to agree to the terms and conditions of the WeConnect ID interface. Easiest to do so is by installing the WeConnect ID app on your smartphone and login there. If necessary you will be asked to agree to the terms and conditions.

Reporting Issues

Known Issues

  • The API is in alpha state and may change unexpectedly at any time! Please conscider this and pin to a specific version if you depend on it.
  • Examples and API documentation is missing


Inspired by TA2k/ioBroker.vw-connect that gave me a point to start working with the API

Seat, Cupra, Skoda IV, ...

In an effort to try to make WeConnect-python also to work with latest generation of vehicles from other volkswagen brands I'm looking for users to temporarily share access to their accounts. If you are willing to support please send me a message.

  • Already tried: Cupra Born (The API looks a bit different, maybe it is older, I will check again in some weeks), thanks to the user initdebugs
