The Zobel has 4 × 4 drive with steering on all four wheels. The vehicle is fully amphibious being propelled in the water by two propellers mounted at the front of the hull, one on either side. These propellers swivel to steer the vehicle when afloat. If required, the rear observer could also drive the vehicle for a short period. Standard equipment includes a complete range of communications equipment, an NBC system, a front-mounted winch for self-recovery operations and a central tyre pressure regulation system which allows the driver to adjust the tyre pressure when the vehicle is moving.
