I am writting after watching (beyond Tomorrow) Where they talked bout your Calcars.I saw how you use the coasting and braking effect for recharing as well as plugging the car in to recharge it.After watching the program.I thought to myself why not just put a small generator or alternator on the axcles that, putout a constant recharge current to the batteries.So that plugging in would be virtually eliminated.Of course the batteries would have to be replaced after awhile, but,except for say climbing high hills(mountainous regions) you wouldn't have to plug it in except at the beginning or battery replacement.Or when you need to replace a worn generator.It could be done if you really wanted to do it.Please let me know your thoughts
Sincerely yours
Paul Valentine...
