Yes, it's vented.

But that vent in the rear seat passenger side is NOT for the 12v  
battery.  It's for the hybrid battery.

You are both right.

The hybrid battery has vent for heat.

The 12V battery has a pipe to avoid any hydrogen and alike forming at
charge time to be released in the closed car.

Traditional cars have the 12V out of a closed box, so its not a problem
for them.
