A few years ago I thought up an idea for adding a rear-drive axle and electric motor to a front-wheel-drive car, but I've never had the opportunity to put it into practice. It would literally just be to "push" the car up to 20mph or so and then go neutral to let the gas engine take over while cruising.

The extra weight could reduce highway economy though...?
