The article covers the usability of alternative materials in vehicle construction. The paper elaborates upon the setup of the process and analysis of the results of the carbon composite component FEM model. The 3D model, used for the examination, is a part of axle from an alternative small electric vehicle. The analysis was conducted with the help of MSC Adams and Ansys Workbench software. Color maps of von Mises stress in material and total deformations of the component are the results of calculation.
