I've briefly considered taking the straight bit of rear driveshaft on my 7-series and replacing it with a 100kw electric unit, thrunk has plenty of space for batteries if you put in a square box. The biggest downside to a driveshaft connected setup is that the e-motor will only reliably go to 6000rpm at that power output, so your top speed would be limited to about 60-70 mph. Awesome torque and weight distribution though on a wagon.

Fork truck motors can be had cheaply, and are a through axle design. If your willing to get to building your own battery packs, you could get something somewhat functional for 1-1.5k. Panamera on a budget
