Electric tricycle can provide a nonpolluting, point to point and silent transport system for urban and rural areas of India replacing petrol/diesel powered three wheelers .The chassis refers to the lower body of the vehicle including tires, engine, frame, drive line and suspension. Out of these the frame provides the necessary support to the vehicle components placed on it such as payload, batteries etc. This paper presents static analysis of chassis frame of electric tricycle. The model is created using CATIA V5 and imported to ANSYS 12 for static structural analysis. The stress plot includes Von Mises stress and shear stress along with displacement plot. The results are compared with analytical, calculated using bending of beam theory.
