Ford Expands Europe Hands-Free Driving Availability with BlueCruise Launch in Third Country: Spain

As the first automaker to receive approval in Spain to introduce hands-free highway driving, the company is expanding the availability of Ford BlueCruise to more customers in Europe. This marks the third European country to authorize the usage of BlueCruise in addition to Great Britain and Germany. It is also available in the U.S. and Canada. 

Earlier this year BlueCruise received approval for use on the motorway network in Great Britain, becoming the first advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) that delivers true hands-free driving at highway speeds in Europe. Approval for use in Germany quickly followed. 

Customers in Great Britain with BlueCruise-equipped Mustang Mach-E vehicles are using BlueCruise today on designated highways called Blue Zones, helping to make driving easier and more enjoyable, especially for long trips or daily commutes in traffic. In the coming weeks, customers in Germany and Spain will be able to order BlueCruise-equipped Mustang Mach-E vehicles to use and enjoy.

There are more than 260,000 BlueCruise-equipped Ford and Lincoln vehicles on the road globally. Customers have also spent over 1.8 million hours enjoying and using BlueCruise and have driven 125 million hands-free miles and counting.
