It is a simple question with the goal to evaluate how do you think and how you approach defining the problem. What interviewers are looking:
1- asking clarifying questions/understand your customer.
2- understanding goals and objectives, problems to solve, value.
3- make trade offs during the design.
4- documenting scenarios, use cases, requirements.

What interviewers are NOT looking for:
- how much you know about designing something (cars in this case)
- how much technological knowledge you have
- the "right" answer
