Free energy motor

Ok, I find this interesting, after initial start by a battery source, the motor turns an alternator which in turns powers the motor, I wonder if there would be enough left over to charge a hybrid pack or run accessories while engine off.

PS, this isn't directly related but there are other videos that are close

Electricity = magnetism (and vice versa).
Therefore an electric motor is also a generator, depending on if you are supplying electricity (then it's a motor), or kinetic energy (then it's a generator).

Electricity makes a magnetic field, and magnetic fields can make electricity.

You cannot make more of one, without supplying more of the other.

MODS- This can live in the unicorn corral.
