The SdKfz 231 was a replacement for the 6 wheeled armoured car of the same designation as there was a need for more cross-country capabilities and the process was completed by 1940. It became the backbone of the Wehrmacht’s heavy reconnaissance brigades until the end of the war.

Specifications
Weight (combat ready): 8,300 kg (8.3 ton)
Length: 5.85 meters (19.2ft)
Width: 2.20 meters (7.2ft)
Height: 2.34 meters (7.8ft)
Crew: 4
Armament: 1 x 20mm KwK gun (180 rounds) & 1 x 7.92mm MG 34 machine gun (2100 rounds)
Maximum Armour: 30 mm (1.1”)
Minimum Armour: 8 mm (0.3”)

Speed on road: 100 kph (62mph)
Range on road: 300 km (186 miles)
Range off road: 167 km (103 miles)

The SdKfz 232 was similar to the SdKfz 231 (it also retained the designation of the 6 wheeled armoured car) and was designed to follow it into battle as it was equipped with a radio - despite the fact that the SdKfz 231 had a radio. Despite this fact it remained in production until 1942.

Specifications
Weight (combat ready): 8,800 kg (8.8 ton)
Length: 5.85 meters (19.2ft)
Width: 2.20 meters (7.2ft)
Height: 2.90 meters (9.5ft)
Crew: 4
Armament: 1 x 20mm KwK gun (180 rounds) & 1 x 7.92mm MG 34 machine gun (1500 rounds)
Maximum Armour: 30 mm (1.1”)
Minimum Armour: 8 mm (0.3”)
Engine: 1 Büssing-NAG L8V engine (180 HP)
Speed on Road: 85kph (53mph)
Range on road: 276 km (172 miles)
Range off road: 153 km (95 miles)

The SdKfz 263 was intended for use as a unit commanders vehicle and as a result it did not have a turret and had a reduced armament of just one machine gun. It was phased out of production in late 1941 as it was found that halftracks better suited this role.
