We have Highlanders over here, but it might be hard to find one with a manual transmission.

I just needed a car for me to zip around in locally. I really don't take up seven seats.

If a person wanted to convert a crossover or SUV to electric, there's nothing stopping them. There was a commercially built version of the RAV-4 electric, and Toyota and Tesla are working together to bring back a new version of it.

I do think an SUV would be rather ambitious for a first-time EV converter. You would want to keep the clutch on a setup like that.
