Van bodies are based on frame structures produced of aluminum alloy profiles. Searching for new directions in the development of vehicle bodies for newly designed eVans led to becoming focused on currently unused polymer composites in this area. The authors of the article designed a composite body for a delivery vehicle. They conducted detailed, numerical comparative analyses of the commercial body and the developed solution. The obtained results clearly confirmed the correctness of the formulated thesis about the possibility of designing bodies dedicated to electric vehicles made of structural composites.
