Better yet, remove the front drive shaft and use the electric motor to power the front axles like a reverse of the VA Tech hybrid they had at the state fair a few years ago. They had the rear axle of an escape driven by electirc and the front axle by a modified turbo charged engine and a comuter between the two to regular power, charging, etc.
