With technological developments and carbon emission reaching dangerous levels in the world, it is inevitable that electric vehicles will become the dominant transpor-tation technology of the future. Studies involving electric vehicles have become very popular today. In the automotive sector, sectoral dynamics and needs are rapidly changing; restrictions and demands are bound by strict rules and high value-added innovative studies are applied intensively. Supporting this area with academic data will contribute to R&D activities in this field. In this study, analysis and production studies have been performed on a 3-wheeled vehicle chassis driven by electric energy. The chassis structure is designed has been analyzed. The chassis aimed to be pro-duced as a result of the study was analyzed in detail according to brake, modal and cornering analysis. As a result of these analyses, It has been found that this chassis has a reliable structure according to the specified driving dynamics parameters. By adopting new requirements, technologies and analysis outputs to the system, a modular platform structure that can be used for varies applications were created. The design and production processes of an innovative and applicable chassis structure for the electric vehicle ecosystem are given in detail.
