That clickbait reads like chewing on tinfoil. My amygdala compels me to go ALL CAPS: THE SOLAR PANELS C H A R G E THE FRICKING BATTERIES!1!!

But that's not all:

I can't even. It must be an attempt at humour. It must be. No one can really be that stupid can they?

Sorry folks, I needed to get that out.

That western clipper, on the other hand, is sweet music to my nostalgia nodes.

Driverless lorry allowed on public Swedish roads

So, if a human isn't on board, is it still considered transportation?

It would fall under "shipping", right?

What's up with the roof?

And no box cavity either?

Roof, concave lip with flanking fences.

Turbulent air trapped will act like a rear spoiler but on the front upper edge, right?

Boundary layer of roof is similar to a pickup truck bed, no cover and tailgate up.
