Read the passage and answer the questions that follow.
A company in Sweden has started using driver less electric trucks on a public road.
The project is testing ideas that could bring important changes in transportation. The trucks are called 'T-Pods'. They are shocking to look at because they don't have windows. In fact, they don't even have a place for people to sit inside them. Not even an emergency driver.
What the T-Pod does have is lots of cameras and sensors and a complicated computer system, so that the truck can drive itself. The T-Pod can constantly and quickly exchange information with a control center. Most of the time T-Pods will drive themselves. But when the trucks are in a difficult situation, a real person will be able to take over and drive until the problem is solved.
The small size allows a T-Pod to travel farther and charge faster. T-Pods can go for about 124 miles on a single charge. The developer of the truck says the driver less electric truck costs about 60% less to run than a normal diesel truck with a driver. And it doesn't pollute.
Though the T-Pods can drive at speeds as high as 60 miles per hour, Sweden is only granting the developer a speed limit of 3 miles per hour. That's about as fast as a person walking at normal speed.
The company wants to have 200 trucks on the road by 2020.

What is different about the new truck?

AIt is very fast.
BIt has no driver.
CIt is made in Norway.
DIt is the smallest truck.
