Luxury car dealer Carl Sewell will begin selling the Fisker electric car next year at his former Hummer dealership in Plano, and to get the car noticed, he has placed one of the $100,000 vehicles inside a store front at Highland Park Village.

Sewell had the entire front of the store removed to get the car inside, according to the Dallas Morning News, will do the same thing in January to get the car out.

The Fisker Karma sedan runs solely on electricity to power the rear axle. A four-cylinder engine in the front spins a generator that sends power to the cars batteries. It reportedly has a range to 300 miles utilizing the gas engine and the batteries, the Morning News reported.
