The Wanderer W10/I 6/30 PS is a car of the lower middle class which was produced by Wanderer-Werke in 1926 as a successor to the W9. It differed from his predecessor by having four-wheel brakes, left hand drive (instead of the previously commonly used right-hand drive), a separate trunk and an uprated engine.
The car had a 4-cylinder OHV front-mounted in-line engine with a displacement of 1.55 litres. The engine developed 30 hp and was mated to a 3-speed transmission. The cars are rear wheels drive. The U-section frame chassis had leaf-sprung rigid axles and the bodies were available as an open touring car or limousine. By 1928, about 6,500 copies were manufactured.
In 1927 a model appeared with a more powerful engine (displacement of 1.94 liters, power output of 40 hp), the W10/II 8/40 PS. In addition to the touring car, the car was also offered as a convertible. Bodies were supplied by Gläser and Reutter. Up until 1929, about 1,500 cars of this design had been made.
Due to the global economic crisis, the bigger vehicles did not sell as well. Therefore, there was a return to the smaller engine. The electrical system had been reduced from 12 volts to 6 volts.
In 1932, the range was replaced with the W15.
