Strictly speaking EVs charge their 12 volt battery with a DC-DC converter. No moving parts.

Yes, it would be bizarre to use an alternator, particularly as you would have to spin up a motor just for it to work!
Wasn't it on here that someone suggested putting an alternator in the car so that the drive battery would always be charging ;)
