Abstract This paper presents a new body design of modern electromagnetic tricycle for traveling in an airport with zero emissions. The design of the tricycle's electromagnetic wheels utilised the theory of automotive dynamics and a brushless DC motor. These consisted of two sliding rings, which are electromagnet and have a permanent magnet inside the wheels. Furthermore, a design chassis was developed using ABAQUS with its dynamic analysis based on the chassis of an existing golf cart model. The chassis was designed and analysed for energy absorption to reduce impact force and protect passengers. A 3D printing prototype was produced to represent the conceptual design realistically, and to validate the functionality of the final design on a small scale.
