According to the company's news release, it is the first automaker to receive approval in Spain to introduce hands-free highway driving.
The expansion 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.
History of Ford's BlueCruise
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 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 on designated highways called Blue Zones.
In the coming weeks, customers in Germany and Spain will be able to order BlueCruise-equipped Mustang Mach-E vehicles to use.
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 using BlueCruise and have driven 125 million hands-free miles.
