Working? Sure.

Have it (I assume the Solidworks to URDF exporter plugni) automagically add joints and separate your STL into different parts: no.

You'll have to either find a proper model of your vehicle and use that as a base, or cut up the mesh you have now and manually add the mates/joints. After that, you can export it to a URDF.
