Mercedes-Benz has a new vision for the electric car, and involves fragrance flasks and 3D LED light arrays. 

The Mercedes-Benz Vision EQS, a new concept car unveiled on Tuesday at the International Motor Show in Frankfurt, is the company’s idea of what a luxury electric sedan should look like.

It goes from 0-100km/h in less than 4.5 seconds, has a top speed of over 200 km/h, and comes with a 100 kWh battery that provides a whopping 700 km (435 miles) of range and charges at 350 kW.
