[Mod idea] Vehicle upgrade

After scrolling through the mod forums ive noticed how the vehicles in NS are pretty neglected. Now i did see the posts about people saying cars. No cars are not possible in the game... you could add them but by the story it doesnt add up, they would of have been scrapped/salvaged/destrodyed/etc and the idea of fossil fuels being used as a fuel source is a strech. Even if made super rare (fuel) what use would you have from a car when you can not drive it for more than 7 tiles before having to go and loot for days so that you have fuel for 7 more tiles.. So i came to the great idea of making upgraded versions of the current vehicles. So heres what i was thinking about: The mod works with both vanilla game and the moded vehicles like the Pathfinder from NSE or the wheelbarrow from M(m)MoD.
The new vehicles would be:
--Motorised Pathfider - Crafted with: Electronic scrap x 10, Motor (New item), Pathfinder bike, Screwdriver, Pliers, Soldering iron, Solder x5 , Car battery, Small mechanical parts x10, Mechanic/Electronic skill - Pros: Better bonuses than the regular Pathfinder - Cons: Less carry weight, uses an X amount of electricity
--Motorised bicycle cart - Crafted with: Electronic scrap x15 Motor x2, Bicycle cart, Screwdriver, Pliers, Hacksaw, Soldering iron, Solder x10 , Car battery, Small mechanical parts x10, Mechanic/Electronic skill - Pros: Once again better bonuses than the non motirsed version - Cons: Less carry weight, a bit less space and uses Y amount of electricity (Y>X).
--Motorised box cart - Crafted with: Electronic scrap x15 Motor x2, Box cart, Screwdriver, Pliers, Hacksaw, Soldering iron, Solder x10 , Car battery, Small mechanical parts x10, Mechanic/Electronic skill - Pros: Once again better bonuses than the non motirsed version - Cons: Less carry weight, a bit less space and uses Y amount of electricity.
--Bicyclebarrow? (A combination of the wheelbarrow and the Pathfinder) - Crafted with: Small mechanical parts x10, Pliers, Scredriver, Hacksaw, Pathfinder, Wheelbarrow, Mechanic skill - Pros: Gives storage space to the Pathfinder - Cons: Slower than the regular Pathfinder
--Motorised "Bicyclebarrow?" - Crafted with: Like everything else so far that has been motorised - Pros: Once agaiin better than the non motorised version - Cons: Less carry weight, bit less space and uses X amount of elecrticity
--Boxed stroller - Crafted: just like the boxed car - Pros: more space - Cons: slower movement
- I also had the idea of some sort of reinforced cart, dont really know how would that work except that it would move slower but also degrade slower dunno bout that one..

Regarding the actual making the mod making, i have some programming experience and think i could tackle this project with a few pointers but i would need help on making the graphics of the mod since i have no former experience in the field and im not really talented in arts. Any tips and/or criticism are welcome, would really like to hear what you the community think about this.

Hello!

This is a post that I believe the modders on our Discord would be very interested in! If you don't hear much back here, I recommend enquiring on the mod channel https://discord.gg/C5Va3P6C

Happy New Year!
