Sure there would be plenty of room to arrange the battery packs in a way that won't interfere too much on the handling compared to a stock E-Type. When it comes to driveline, I'd also expect some direct-drive unit not so bigger than a regular differential case or transaxle to become the standard for similar projects. Eventually, catering to those die-hard entusiasts, it may be possible to program the motor to emulate gears and enable some shifting-like behavior, in a pattern similar to what is already implemented to some CVTs with a sequential manual mode.

I have already seen an E-Type in my hometown, and BTW it was an U.S.-spec with automatic transmission, but never seen it with the rear hatch open.
