||So you want to power an electric vehicle with batteries. Ok got it. Now you want to add a secondary drive train to the battery pack itself.....Not a good idea. The main challenge to adoption of electric cars has always been that 1 pound of gas stores a hell of a lot more energy than the same weight of batteries. Adding more drive train to the vehicle total weight with a "self moving" battery pack increases the total demand for vehicle hp and stored energy in the battery pack.
