At that point, you will be little need an on-board generator (while you drive) and your battery pack need only have the capacity to cover the distance to your next destination charger or to the next electrified roadway.
As I said, vehicles you propose are now called a hybrids! Isn't interesting that few auto manufacturers haven't as yet
considered such a vehicle. Given the size of GM & Toyota, you'd think they might develop what you suggest
and call it a Volt and a Prius, respectively. I read that somewhere. Or maybe we need "tunnels" as Elon suggested
with magnetic coupling to each vehicle as it moves thru the tunnels for a long commute and for charging the
battery for the balance of the commute once it leave the tunnels? That could be a co-development with Elon's hyperloop, and be reality by 2025.
