Abstract: This paper provides an in-detail description of the design considerations, static & dynamic analysis and mathematical data involved in the design of an ELECTRIC MOTOR POWERED ALL TERRAIN VEHICLES (ATV). The main objective of this paper is to reduce the usage of organic fuel powered vehicles and to design a vehicle which works efficiently in the emerging electric vehicle sector. The fast moving metropolitan cities necessitates preplanning of transportation and mobile network. With the advancements in automobile industry, these problems has been tackled to a certain extend but has also brought a concern to vehicular pollution. Air pollution today being a major point of debate persuades engineers and scientists to think of something new and pose a solution to this ever growing issue. Going green seems an only feasible solution to this and that’s the reason for choosing the electric motor as the main power source for this all terrain vehicle. In order to maintain the speed levels of the vehicle, seamless decision was made in motor selection.In today’s world, Electric cars are gaining a great demand with increasingly new features established in them and rising demand of eco friendly status for each one of us. Electric cars which uses electricity to charge up their batteries; have replaced gasoline and diesel cars with features like high speed, less carbon emission, less maintenance, up to certain level with better mileage . Hence the main focus has been laid on the simplicity of the design, high performance, easy maintenance and safety at a very affordable price. During the entire design process, consumer interest through innovative, inexpensive, and effective methods was always the priority. Most of the components have been chosen based on their easy availability and reliability. According to recognition of customer’s need the vehicle is designed to be ergonomic, aerodynamic, highly engineered and easily manufactured. Hence, it makes the vehicle more efficient. This vehicle can navigate through almost all terrains, which ultimately is the main purpose behind the making of any all-terrain vehicle . This report aimed at designing, analysing, fabrication and testing of steering, braking and power transmission for an eco-green all terrain vehicles (ATV) in a nutshell.
