2000 Toyota sienna conversion

I am new to this forum. Hope someone out there might be able to help me out.

We have a 2000 Toyota sienna with an engine that has 290k. It is starting to burn oil, and I am pondering whether I can just take it and convert it to electric and use it as a commuter only.

Are there any kits out there? Pros and cons with converting a van? It is an automatic also, not sure if that makes a difference.

Thanks for your help!
