Acceleration is activated, allowing Model X to
accelerate closer to a vehicle in front (see
Overtake Acceleration on page 77). Midway
through the lane change, Auto Lane Change
must be able to detect the target lane's
outside lane marking. If this lane marking can
not be detected, both Auto Lane Change and
Autosteer will cancel.
