Default Honda Insight Hybrid (battery)

Hello,

Honda Insight Hybrid :
Is it normal for the motor starts to charge the battery when it goes
down to 1/3 of its capacity and when the car is in a long climb ?
In this situation, engine power should only be used to tow the car, right ?
Thank you for your opinion.

no, it will siphon some of the engine power to charge the battery as it
sees fit--even when it seems to the driver that it shouldn't.

It certainly was with my Civic hybrid. It might stop charging
if I was really pushing it like trying to accelerate hard during that
climb.
