The car was smooth, quiet and easy to drive. Once the occupants were seated, all that was required to move was to have the direction switch set to forward. The maximum speed on fully-charged batteries was about 30 mph.To slow down the control was moved to the "off" position, and if required the brakes could also be applied.

The Dodge Power Wagon is a four wheel drive light truck based on the WC series of Dodge 3/4 ton Military trucks. It was one of the firsts to be offered directly to the civilian population.

The Model T was a rear-wheel drive vehicle with a suspension that employed a transversely mounted semi-elliptical spring for each of the front and rear beam axles which allowed a great deal of wheel movement to cope with the dirt roads at the time.
