89 Subaru XT EV?

I have an 89 subaru that I dumped way too much money into, only to have engine problems. I'd love to turn this into and electric vehicle but I'm not sure it would work. It's a 5 speed MT 4WD. The original motor only had about 95 hp I think. I have two concerns: it weighs I think around 3,600 lbs. and is only rated to carry around 650 lbs. Opinions? Will I be able to carry enough batteries after I remove the engine and everything related. Maybe if I pull all the 4 wheel drive stuff too?
