You'd be suprised how they charge the batteries in them hybrids. One of the coolest methods is the brakes. If I remember correctly, each whell hub incorporates a small generator. Hit the brakes, the generator kicks in, and starts chrging the batteries. I even saw one system on the Discovery channel that finally made spinners make sense. A generator that stored kinetic energy while travelling. When stopped or slowed, the generqtor kept spinning, just like the spinner wheels, thereby charging the batteries. In theory, with enough developement, you could ditch the gas engine all together. Initially charge the batteries, and let the kinetic energy inherant in a vehicle keeo them charged...
