There are several problems. The amperage the generator puts out is too low to do more than trickle charge even at full throttle, the power is probably "dirty" square-wave output instead of sine wave, and the exhaust would have to be routed outside the car. This is in addition to the obvious environmental, efficiency and common sense objections...
This idea comes up all the time even in two-wheeled EV forums. Yikes.
