The aim of this study is to do a analysis of and ALL TERRAIN VEHICLE and make calculations of analysis. The focus has been laid on the simplicity of design and its high performance. The design and development comprise of material selection, chassis and frame design, design of various components of power train, suspension and wheel assembly, braking system and steering system. During the entire design process, an innovative idea was always the primary goal. For performing a analysis, there is a need for a 3d model, for which we use SOLIDWORKS 2018. Its user friendly UI and feature packed software lets us design and make changes in the 3d model on the go. It also allows adding material specifications which is of utmost importance for analysis. Our vehicle dimensions are according to the BAJA SAE INDIA rule book. The main focus of the paper leans towards the durability of the vehicle for different materials uneven circumstances. Again this allows us to choose the material wisely, ex .Economically and most important the materials should reach the required standards of the ATV.
