According to Jaguar, the interior featuring augmented reality glass can also show information about the outside world and warn drivers of obstacles. The virtual concept car also has an artificial intelligence assistant called KITT-E and 3D image display.

Vision Gran Turismo Coupe is not a real car, but Jaguar is still designed like a car. According to Jaguar, the car has a perfect 50:50 front: rear weight distribution and weighs 3,086 pounds. It's not bad for a car to run around a heavy battery pack. Jaguar said the Formula E race team helped design a power train consisting of three electric motors. One motor powers the front wheels and the other motors power each of the rear wheels to drive the front wheels of the car.
The three motors together produce 1,005 horsepower and 885 lb ft of torque.
