For a number of years Louis I. Hatfield had quarreled with the firm's directors, particularly Winfield T. Sherwood, on the matter of whether to produce an automobile. To test the waters a limited production light commercial vehicle, the Hatfield Light Express, was produced between 1912 and 1913.

For 1917 they introduced the Hatfield Model I Suburban, the nation's first production wood-bodied station wagon. Also introduced that year was the Model B Roadster-Speedster, a stylish two-seater with 2 custom-built suitcases mounted behind the gasoline tank.
