Like so many other concepts, the Vision EQS is  an electric car that points to the automaker's future, but it's the idea of sustainability that gives this specific concept an interesting new angle.

In traditional luxury-concept fashion, the swept lines and various contours draw inspiration from fancy-pants yachts.

But, whereas the yachting life isn't exactly about being sustainable, the EQS takes a different angle.

The headliner? It's made from plastic that would otherwise end up in the ocean.

Even the maple wood trim is taken from specific German forests that focus on conservation and minimizing carbon footprints by keeping production local.

The rose gold accents are, well, just rose gold accents.

It's believed that the EQS will eventually graduate from concept form to become the second vehicle in the EQ lineup, following the EQC crossover.
