Finding a motor suitable to fit the same space a driveshaft would be supposed to go is far from being the easiest task, yet I remember some years ago there were plans to release one commercially. On a sidenote, too bad repurposing the setup of a CR-V or Accord hybrid into a Ridgeline would be mostly out of question.
