Getting a vehicle will be a long and arduous process. Characters will have to find information about cars, research the components using their Tradeskills, gather the necessary resources, and finally spend the weeks in the actual crafting. Some of these goals can be accomplished through missions, others through simple resource hunting. Vehicles are highly customizable (different chassis, body panels, engines, etc.), and are customized during construction. There will also be items which can be used to beef up and improve vehicles, such as nitro canisters.
Crafters will probably want to use one of the more storage-focused vehicles on their day-to-day travels rather than focusing on speed or sturdiness. While a motorcycle lets you carry four or so extra slots of inventory, a decked out Tornado Cargo Edition has thirty-two inventory slots.
Vehicles will not be simply found intact, unless a character wants to give one away. A vehicle represents a huge investment of resources and work and as such will likely be a status symbol.
Vehicles allowing passengers will most likely not be in at release, but will be added soon after.

Flying Vehicles Edit
There are currently no plans for pilotable vehicles. A large part of the travel elements in the Fallen Earth world are based on terrain, such as huge canyons making the trip between two points three hundred yards away take a few hours instead of a few minutes. While the developers want people to be able to get where the fun is, adding the capacity to fly would make a humongous change to the overall flavor of the game and one they don't think would be a change for the better.
Fuel can be bought in some towns. Crafters are also be able to make it. There's unlikely to be any fuel that can only be obtained through a single method, but really high end fuel will have to be made by crafters.
