Hello, welcome !
I'm no expert in the field of conversions or advanced mechanics even but I'm thinking, did you consider finding a smaller donor car..I mean the smallest you can find, maybe do a bit of weight stripping to get it to a very low weight..I'm thinking maybe like 1200-1400 lbs and maybe, just maybe that might be able to go 90+ miles on a single charge...
