I believe there is still an alternator in this system which runs off the engine. The regenerative braking is only supplementing the engine created electricity.

Hybrid Cars have electric motors at each drive wheel; these motors are powered by a battery/engine; During deceleration these Motors turn into Alternators (reversing polarity maybe?) and generate power which is feed back into the system.

Note: a Motor and an Alternator are almost identical.
