Ya know, I'm kind of surprised more hybrid/PHEV/all electric cars aren't running supercaps instead of a lead acid 12v for this sort of thing. I suspect the answer is cost as it almost always is but supercaps offer a lot of advantages over stock car batteries. These Maxwell supercaps are what we use on some of our gensets and they're the bomb.
