I don't think I would ever use it anyway.

What does this feature do exactly that the standard feature doesn't?

$1400 is way better than Tesla's $8000. Let's see what it does for $1400.
For now single lane hands free driving in certain mapped areas. Wasn’t it 160,000 miles of US interstates and state highways?

$1400 would be an amazing bargain. I hope they’re right. I was expecting $2500.

’CoPilot 360’ on my 530e cost $1700 plus another $800 for self parking features. So BMW charges $2500 for what comes standard on the Mach FE. There is no hands free option available at any price on the BMW. BMW does include a heads up display, but it doesn’t work with polarized glasses and sort of sux compared to other brands HUDs.

Divided highways with controlled access iirc.

I live in the Detroit area and have a cabin on Drummond Island (north of Mackinac), so I would get a lot of use out of it. But I would wait to see some reviews of it first.

Do you mean Tesla's FSD? Autopilot is just auto steer and ACC but you still have to keep your hands on the wheel.
Yes, FSD formerly known as AutoPilot or now aka Enhanced AutoPilot LOL Hard to keep up with all the marketing based flavors of its Level 2 autonomous system.

No matter what you call them, all these systems require you to pay attention to the road and be ready to take control on a moment's notice.

I wonder if it would work when crossing the Mackinac Bridge?

The next feature that EVs need is V2V communications. I see a future where EVs travel safely as they talk to each other and respect traffic laws, so lane changing is acknowledged and done automatically, passing old ICEVs.

Ford should give this for free to the FE owners. (stop the whining about only $1000 discount comparing to Premium 😆)

I would not use it...don't trust the people behind the software. No matter how simple something is, someone always F it up. I lead a small army of software developers and sometimes I want to trade them in for a group of monkeys. Didn't the Polestar 2 get recalled due to it software causing to car to stop working while drivers were in the middle of the highway?!?

Stupid question: isn't this just part of the Technology Pack? In the Dutch pricelist it states under the TP: Active Drive Assist with Lane Centering Asist, Stop&Go and Handsfree mode (if allowed in the EU).

Has anyone listened to this podcast? At 9:40 into the podcast, Autoline Daily reports that hands-free Active Drive Assist will cost $1,400 and be available three to four months after the Mach-E sales begin.

Sales will start before the end of the ear in the US. Sales in Europe and China will start three months after that.
Got an email today from Ford UK that orders will be confirmed from end of November, according to the pre-order date. The order number is randomly generated and carries no real implication on delivery.

So hopefully, delivery will be made from Jan to Mar?

In the US it is called 'Active Drive Assist Prep Kit' with the following text: "Active Drive Assist functionality expected 3rd quarter 2021CY. Separate payment for feature software required to activate full functionality at that time."

According to our configurator and pricelist it seems that we, in Europe, don't have to pay extra for the software. However there is not any information given if in Europe it will be allowed and how many highways will be included. Also keep in mind that the pricing of our Mach-E trims are also quite a bit higher here, especially with the new discounts in the US.
