Karmann-Ghias are nice, but wouldn't be my choice for an EV conversion, I'd rather slap a Subaru engine into one.

But it may be a good base for your project, due to the good aerodynamics (taking the standards from its era as a reference), lightweight, and it seems easy to get a good weight balance between the axles to not compromise the driveability so much.
