Ok, I have 1,400 miles (~2250KM) on my Model X. One new technique it did not expect to have to develop is the emergency accelerator stab. Floor the thing because it's urgent...
Highway case in point:
Traveling around 75 MPH (~120KPH) in and HOV lane which is separated by two thick, white lines from the other 4 normally marked highway lanes. Traffic Ware Cruise Control Engaged. Autosterr too, but irrelevant for the purposes of this. It behaves the same regardless of autosteer.
A car, two lanes away from the HOV lane I am in decides to change lanes into the lane next to me.
Model X brakes aggressively while there is no safety risk, no danger. A car is changing from two lanes over into the lane next to me.
Stabbing the accelerator to the floor is the only safe option. There were cars behind me and their following distance is up to them. Tailgating is popular. I prefer to accelerate as opposed to agressively braking when there is no danger....
