So, all the Chicken Little stuff about EV's is misguided.
Here is another video of towning a Leaf to charge it that still plays.

It is brief and done at a slow speed but shows that it will obviously work. I'm surprised no one has ever done a more serious attempt to see what capacity can really be put back. Or even a video of a Leaf coming down a long mountain descent. His power flow indicator seems to show a higher charge rate at the beginning and then taper off to 1 bar max later. But surely this can't be the maximum from heat already after such a short run. Maybe he just wasn't pressing on the brake pedal enough. There are many mountain passes all over the world that will take an hour or more to descend.
