The Text can't wrap for fields added to cards as there is a restriction on the overall size of the card. If the card had no size restrictions then the card layout on the boards would become very difficult and inefficient when a card has lots of text. 

The idea with cards is a user selects them to open the "Details View" to see the additional information they require
