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.
Getting a vehicle is a long and arduous process. Not counting gathering the necessary resources, characters have to acquire knowledge about how to craft the various vehicles which includes researching the components, crafting the components, and then finally assembling them into a usable vehicle – each of these steps taking several hours. All vehicle crafting is done by use of the Science tradeskill.
To get started with vehicle crafting, characters are able to do a number of quests (located in Sector 1) which on completion teaches the proper knowledge to start crafting and researching more advanced vehicles. All these quests also rewards a vehicle component that is used to craft the basic ATV.
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.
There will also be items which can be used to beef up and improve vehicles, such as nitro canisters.
Vehicles allowing passengers currently does not exist, but will perhaps be added in the future.

Different vehicles require different types of fuel. Fuel can be bought at most garages (which usually are located outside towns and are marked by a red gasoline can on the map). Crafters will also be able to make it using the Science tradeskill. It's unlikely that any fuel can only be obtained through a single method, but really high-end fuel will have to be made by crafters.
Types of fuel:
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.
Perhaps one day, they'll release magnetic or propelled hover vehicles, both of which are incapable of flying high above the ground.
