What we have now are gas engine hybrids supplemented by electric motors. Why not reverse that and have an electric car supplemented by an engine. The battery would be charged overnight from hydro and that would be sufficient for normal daily use. On long drives the engine would be used only to charge the battery so it could be run at it's peak efficiency.
