Charge electric vehicles while they're moving down hill

Put magnets in the road on the way down the Bombay hills. Have a receiver inside an electric car. The magnets will slow the car down, pushing energy into the vehicle's battery. This is gravitational potential energy so it's almost completely free.

So suddenly your electric car slows down below the speed of the cars around it... oh no, driver will have to put their foot on the accelerator to keep up?
