However, when you move to hybrids (Mild or Full), the drive to the compressor can be either the IC engine or the electric motor. In some cases, the compressor (electric) is also powered by the APU (Auxiliary Power Units) through the battery stack.

Anyways New Gen cars will switch on the AC only if the engine is running thereby saving the poor battery

In the automobiles available now in India, only Reva has an AC which is completely driven by a battery officer.
In a normal car AC, the compressor is driven by a belt drive when the engine is running, but the blower runs on current either from battery when engine is not running or from battery / alternator when engine is running.
If the blower is used in a stationary car without the engine running, it can lead to the battery draining out.
