Hello, I was recently tinkering with the thoughts of adding an electric motor to the Miata in order to make it all-wheel drive, I have been thinking of ways to add power to the car, and electrifying it a bit seemed to be one of my thoughts.

Is something like this possible? What would be a good alternative?
You say 'adding' like you want to keep the ICE?
The MX5 doesn't seem like an ideal project car for a hybrid build, no space!

An alternative would be to electrify it completely and somehow get a transfer case in there to run a front axle. The Lexus LS600h has a transfer case included, i'm not sure how well the fit would be on an MX5, however
