Comprehensive list of Volvo dealers and inventory

Hello all,

I made some notebooks demonstrating how to access some of Volvo’s public APIs. You can find them here:

Here’s a link to the json for the dealers within 500 miles of my house. If you are on the west coast you may want to rerun the script yourself on a closer zip code :slight_smile:

@RustyDaemon we can probably use this to automatically populate all Volvo dealers into your scraper.

Happy Thanksgiving!

It looks like there is a similar Volvo API for searching new inventory too.

It also has a lot more information than the Volvo website displays, such as packages :grinning:

Here’s a notebook in which I search for XC40 inventory with Advanced and Comfort packages, and premium sound.

I’m really happy with how this turned out. I was going to make a giant list like this by hand. This is so much easier, and no scraping involved.

Example output:

So I was getting RVs and MFs from Edmunds and then I wondered if the Volvo calculator secretly leaks the information through an API… and yup, it does.

There’s also information about incentives, including reasonable explanations and information about what incentives stack.

So the APR reported here for a S60 is 2.32. But Edmunds disagrees and says it is way lower.

Asking on the Edmunds forum to see what the real MF is.

Ah. I see what happened. They have a special lease rate as an “incentive”.

107716: {incentiveId: 107716, name: "2021 Volvo S60 T6 R-Design AWD Special Lease", description: "",…}

4: {rate: 4.152, cash: 0, startTerm: 48, endTerm: 48}

So the information is there, just needs a bit of work to interpret it.

This is all great. Are you getting the rate/incentive information from the same API?

The rate/incentive information comes from a different API. The inventory stuff is from api.volvocars.com. The rate/incentive is from dealertrack.com. I haven’t made a notebook for it yet but here are the requests and responses from my browser:

Ok now I made up the notebook :slight_smile:

does this take into account that dealer websites, especially for volvos, are nowhere near accurate w/r/t their inventory? a bunch of dealers wait to RDR their cars until the end of the month, so websites show them, but they are long gone?

Inventory comes from the Volvo site, which is accurate (I believe), not individual dealers.

Hi, nice work. Thanks for this

I made a couple changes to allow lat/long (has to be 7 decimal places and has to agree with the zipcode), and I combined the option and package codes so you can search for option codes no matter if they’re in a package or stand alone.

here

So how did you get an API key for this? I tried to sign up for their API site and it would not let me.

Do you know if they have a certified preowned api?

Nice :slight_smile: If I get a little more time I want to automatically look up the latitude and longitude from the zipcode. This is what the Volvo website does.

I just looked at the requests my browser was making as I used the features on the Volvo website.

It looks like it:

In a nutshell, this is all I am doing:

  • Go to Volvo page but don’t do the search yet and don’t put in zipcode
  • Open Developer Tools in chrome
  • Go to the network tab
  • Do the search
  • Show only XHR requests
  • Look for responses that contain JSON

When you find one, you can then right click on it, go to copy, and copy the request as a curl command (or something else).

The incentory and incentive search stopped working this morning. It looks like the API key is going to change each month. I updated that in the notebook, but now it’s returning no incentives. I assume they are still entering them.

Yes, they are changing incentives. It will take couple of days for them to show up on the site.

New incentives are available. I had to change the API key again since yesterday.

Thank you. Really helpful stuff. Good to learn new tech skills and make life easier.

hate to be the dummy, but other than entering zip and car, how do I use this?

Click on Run all from the Runtime menu. After that, if you want to change the form parameters, you can click on the “Play” button to the left of the cell you are editing and it will refresh only that part.
