Looking at this website, I see a lot about HHO and LPG but not about traditional EVs or hybrids. Is it that Falcons are too large to run on electricity? Is it too expensive to perform? I know that on Ecomodders.net, they mainly use 2G Swifts and EG Civics for conversions, but I need the space. Toyota in Japan have both the Kluger and Tarago (Estima) in hybrid so I don't see much of a problem but I doubt they will bring them here, and if they do, they will be freaking expensive.
Thanks for your assistance

and would cost enough to run the car on petrol for 30+years

An EV falcon wouldnt be hard at all since there would be plenty of room for the motor and batteries, although to get decent performance youd need a pretty big (expensive) motor and a pretty big (expensive) battery pack, you be looking at around $8,000 if you wanted it to perform in a similar manner to the stock car, and you will loose some load carrying capacity as the batteries add quite a bit of weight.

petrol/elec hybrid would be much harder as its a much more complex setup than pure electric
