With the development of modern technology and the improvement of people’s living standards, transportations such as automobiles, motorcycles, and sharing bicycles have emerged. However, motor vehicles cause many problems. It carries out the structural design of the solar balance cars and draws its structural model with UG software. The software ANSYS was used to analyze the mechanics of the solar balance cars. The designed indicators met the requirements for use.
