Vehicle Extraction#

Related page type is Product List Extraction which supports pages with multiple products.

Request example#

If you requested vehicle extraction, and the extraction succeeds, then the vehicle field will be available in the query result:

from autoextract.sync import request_raw

query = [{
    'url': 'https://example.com/vehicle',
