I'm thinking take something like a Subaru Impreza and eliminate the 4wd mechanism except for the rear axles then attach electric motors to them. Basically treat it like an EV with IC backup/charging ability. Yes, there might be smaller lighter vehicles to start with, but you would have to fabricate a rear-drive mechanism although that might not be too bad if you can graft in a rear driveline from a small IRS car like a BMW 3-series or VW bug....or even a Subaru.

Maybe a small electric FWD car with a motorcycle rear end?
