Today, regarding volume more polymers than steel are used for the manufacture of the transport means. The reasons are various ; technical ones include large freedom of design, aesthetic characteristics and dynamics, and the industrial ones include the possibility of selecting the manufacturing procedure which allows mass production, small batches, special models, etc. The ecological reasons require reduction of the fuel consumption and gas emissions, and they mean lighter vehicles and improved streamlining. At the end of the vehicle life-cycle the plastic components can be recycled or energy recovered by combustion. The vehicle industry requirements are a great challenge for the designers, because of balancing the affordable price, excellent service characteristics, reliability, comfort, safety, etc. The paper includes the design and manufacture of electromotor-powered vehicle which can be used on various difficult terrains, on snow, water, sand, mud and on big slopes where no modifications need to be done when changing the mentioned surfaces.
