Designed as monoposto cockpit (a.k.a single-seat cockpit), it demonstrates driver-focused approach and indicates new possibilities for INFINITI by adopting electrified powertrains and flexible vehicle platforms.

The cockpit is designed just like single-seat F1 cars, allowing the driver to fully in-control with unhindered view of the road ahead, it has four-point harness, brake accelerator pedals, and also race-inspired steering wheel.
