It's okay, it won't do much. Thermoelectric junctions like they talk about in the article work over temperature differential. Since the car would be almost entirely all the same temperature there would be very little or no energy to recover.

But, I hear you say, what about when the air conditioning is on and it's hot outside? Well, in that case it would just make the air conditioner work harder and then return a small amount of the energy to the battery. It would be like driving around with a wind turbine on top of the car.
