Most of us North Americans probably only witnessed this car in video games. For many, the Renault Sport Clio V6 never actually existed outside of Gran Turismo. I mean, why would a dorky little compact car shaped like a cartoon with a V6 engine where the back seats should be even be a thing?

Last-mile delivery is, apparently, the cause of a lot of traffic in urban areas. Living in New York City and having to constantly dodge around double-parked delivery trucks, I am inclined to agree. Renault’s solution to alleviate that is to implement a fleet of automated delivery pods.

Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories you need to know.

In case you’re not aware, there’s a larger-than-you’d-think group of gearheads who are literally counting down the days until the first-generation of Renault’s delightful city car, the Twingo, is old enough to be imported to America.
