May be it is reasonable to review a hybrid upgrade
S3 Elise comes with either a 1ZR-FAE or 2ZR-FE + supercharger. The Prius HSD system does not just bolt onto that even if it shares the 2ZR shortblock (with different pistons)

In the US, we can't get the S3 for another 15 years because Lotus' crash safety exemption expired.
