The main point I would make, from simply a common sense standpoint, is that if it was a workable idea, someone would be doing it by now. By having to run the genset to power the motor, you basically lose the positives of using electric, since you're still running a internal combustion motor anyway.

Free, is the heart, that lives not, in fear.
Full, is the spirit, that thinks not, of falling.
True, is the soul, that hesitates not, to give.
Alive, is the one, that believes, in love.
