There have been plug-in versions of older Prius cars done.

A few 3rd party collaborations done with mainstream auto manufactures. Both Smith and Azure converted a few Ford models.

One needs the full SDK for the ECUs. In the case of Azure, it uses at least one Ford ECU that can deal with the keys and body sensors, then reprogrammed to do the electronic system monitoring.

So not fooling the ECU, but using it as a vital on-board computer.

If a company planned to convert 100+ vehicles, not competing with current offerings, it is possible one could do a collaborative project with a major auto manufacturer.
