    Electric vehicle...

    Runs on electricity (rechargeable).
    Bank of 6 batteries. Quantity and quality define maximum run time.
    Slower than the gas-powered vehicles.
    Quieter than gas powered vehicles (less chance of attracting vultures).

    Potential mods:

    -Solar array. (Vehicle charges a bit during daylight. Extends run time and will slowly charge completely drained batteries).
    -High performance motor. (Faster speed).
    -Battery conditioner. (Longer run time).
    -Hybrid (Turbo mode engages gasoline engine. Vehicle stops using electricity, starts using gas and moves as fast as other vehicles).

    I mean, vultures are attracted to BICYCLES. I think Vultures just have a hateboner for wheels.

    Cool concept!

    I'm ok with an electric bicycle that runs a bit more than a normal one and with less stamina.
    The "recharge" thing looks a bit tedious (i mean, creating a dedicated mechanic for an "extra" fueling system on a vehicle)

    It can be just a mod "electric helper" or whatever to install in the bicycle? less stamina usage, more speed? (for the realism part place some solar panels on the bike and an iron thingy block on the wheels?)

    The connect to generator part for fueling sounds a big trip just to "level up" a non-fueled vehicle..
    at this point a minibike looks more efficient.. fuel > vehicle VS fuel > generator > vehicle

    my 2 cents

    For start: Charging batteries in BB.
    Next: Connect bike/4x4 whatever with wire tool
    Final: Wireless mod and wireless charger area where you can park an charge up the batteries inside the vechicles.

    Also addig extra batteries can make vechicles "hybrid" to save fuel.
