As Ford continues to play catch-up to Tesla in self-driving technology, the company’s Blue Cruise software hit an important milestone.
This month, Blue Cruise hit 10.6 million miles driven by Ford vehicles.
Blue Cruise has 66,500 people using the software on the over 130,000 miles of highways it is approved for use.
As per company data, it looks like the most popular routes to use Blue Cruise are:
- Dallas to Houston
- Cape Canaveral and Ft. Lauderdale
- Salt Lake City and Las Vegas
These routes are mainly highway driving, so a perfect spot to utilize the software.
As the technology gets more miles under its belt, we should continue to see an expansion of the software.
Ford expects to onboard another 35,000 clients soon, bringing the total operators to 100,000.
However, only Ford owners who Ford’s Co-Pilot 360 Active 2.0 Prep Package will receive the software update with Blue Cruise.
Ford CEO Jim Farley said this about the 10 million mile achievement:
We are rapidly increasing the number of digital vehicles on the road with new services that create ‘always-on’ customer relationships with great software experiences.
Currently, Blue Cruise is available on the Mustang Mach-E and some Ford F-150 trims.
However, Ford plans to release the tech to move models shortly, including all their EV offerings.
