I once worked on a bolt on HEV system in my old days @ DCX. It worked well, but wasn't hooked to the brakes at all, jut regen when you lifted from the pedal. Is could. but it would be complicated and costly to say the least.
Can you program?
How are you with CAN (Controller Area Networks)?
You could probably do it for about $5K on the cheap side.
The low cost option would be a small EV setup bolted on, and an interface / control box.
You could then just plug into the grid.
Did I mention I'm an HEV engineer?
