Most car's that's up against the shock tower. Most cars just ain't wide enough.

Makes more sense to add electricity where you already have space... at the starter motor. Replace the starter with something bigger, beef up the flywheel, and you've got hybrid assist. Lay out the new, bigger motor over the transmission, where you have a space that manufacturers usually stuff with intake tubes and batteries... both of which can be moved aside.
