1532 - 1886 - From grain to steel

1532 - 1886

From grain to steel

Tools, household utensils, crinolines, spectacle frame springs, saw blades, surgical instruments, sewing machines, and more. Rooted in a very agricultural France, a pioneering and daring family strikes out from the land and makes their way into industry.

15th century: proof of the presence of the Peugeot family in the Montbéliard region in Vandoncourt. Originally a farming family, the Peugeots also included artisans, soldiers and cloth weavers in their midst. Several Peugeots were already persons of considerable influence in the region: Jehan Pequignot, pronounced Peugeot, and three of his sons or grandsons were Mayors of Vandoncourt in the course of the 16th and 17th Centuries.

1734 - 1810
1734 marks the origin of the family's foray into industry with the birth of Jean-Pierre Peugeot. Unable to inherit the mill from his father, he turned instead to weaving. On his death, he left his heirs a dye-works, an oil mill and a grain mill.

In 1810, his sons, Jean-Pierre II and Jean-Frédéric, found the company, Peugeot-Frères aînés et Jacques Maillard-Salins with their brother-in-law. The family mill at Sous-Crates, owned by Jean-Frédéric, is converted to a steel foundry, marking the beginning of an industrial era for the Peugeot family.

1819 - 1832
Peugeot-Frères aînés et Jacques Maillard-Salins becomes Peugeot-Frères et Compagnie. From 1824, the Hérimoncourt factory (employing 70 workers) processes 100 to 150 kg of steel per day with its three hammers and seven rolling mills. Peugeot products are exported to Switzerland, Italy and Turkey. In 1825, Peugeot-Frères et Compagnie becomes Peugeot frères aînés, Calame et Jacques Maillard-Salins.

1832 heralds the birth of the company Peugeot frères aînés.

1840 - 1850
The family branches out into other areas and opens new factories: Pont-de-Roide, Valentigney, Beaulieu - sites still in use today by companies in the PSA Group. Diversification of production: in addition to the famous coffee grinder, a hugely successful product created in 1840 (you will still find modern version for sale today), the family also produces band saws, springs, corset stays and umbrella frames, to name but a few.
In 1850 the Lion emblem appears on Peugeot saw blades for the first time. This logo was officially registered at the Conservatoire des Arts and Métiers in 1858.

1851 - 1869
Jules and Émile, sons of Jean-Pierre II, found Peugeot frères in 1851 with their nephew, Louis Fallot. The company's registered office is at Valentigney.

Diversification continues in the period 1855 to 1869 with the company producing its first crinolines, clippers (originally designed for the army's horses, a model to be used by the men soon followed), and sewing machines, which the company would continue to produce until 1936!

1869 - 1886

1869 sees the establishment of forward-thinking social policies by Peugeot: savings bank, mutual aid, free health care, insurance, hospitals, schools, retirement scheme, and a 10-hour working day - 33 years ahead of the law. Emile Peugeot founds the Prix littéraire pour la paix (Literature Peace Prize)

The Peugeot chain bicycle, brainchild of Armand Peugeot, goes into mass production in Beaulieu in 1886.

1889 - 1918 - Armand Peugeot: the automobile era

Armand Peugeot (1849-1915) leads the company into motor car production. Fascinated by this new invention, he quickly realises the car's immense potential and seeks out others of like mind. His early meetings with Gottlieb Daimler and Émile Levassor date back to 1888.

From steam to petrol, from the crank to the steering wheel, he has the ability to negotiate the major twists and turns to stay in the race and steer Peugeot onto the road to success.

1889 - 1891

The first motor vehicle with the Peugeot name is shown in 1889: the Serpollet-Peugeot, a steam-driven three-wheeler produced in collaboration with Léon Serpollet. By now, Peugeot factories employ 1,100 people.

In 1890, Armand Peugeot abandons steam in favour of petrol and produces the first four-wheeled petrol-driven vehicle under the Peugeot brand: the Type 2, with a Daimler engine.

In 1891 Peugeot frères is renamed Les fils de Peugeot frères.

With Rigoulot and Doriot taking turns as drivers, a four-wheeled, petrol-driven car takes part in the Paris-Brest cycle race and clocks an average speed of 14.7 km per hour. The return journey along the Vanentigney road and back covers a total of 2,200 km! The first person to buy a Peugeot car takes delivery on 2 October 1891 - a Type 3, one of 64 produced.

1892 - 1895

Armand Peugeot extends the range with the Type 5 (a two-seater), Types 6 and 7 (phaeton), the Type 8 Victoria, the Type 9 vis-à-vis and the Type 10 estate. Types 11 (two-seater) and 12 (covered estate) would follow, along with the first commercial vehicle, the Type 13 delivery van.

Édouard and André Michelin try out the first tyres on a Peugeot Type 6 (nicknamed the Éclair) during the Paris-Bordeaux-Paris race.

Armand Peugeot founds Automobiles Peugeot, a Société anonyme, to concentrate on manufacturing private cars and trucks, while the sons of his cousin Eugène form Les Fils de Peugeot frères, dedicated to the manufacture of tools, bicycles and motorbikes.

Enter the Type 14, with the first two-cylinder horizontal engine (patented by Michaux). Daimler engines would be abandoned the following year.

1897 - 1900
Armand builds a factory at Audincourt in the Doubs region (extending over an area of 50,000 m², with 4,000 m² under roof), followed by another at Lille (Fives). The range is almost entirely revamped, with Types 21 to 25 supplementing the existing range: Types 14 (two-seater), 15 (phaeton - the most popular), 16 (vis-à-vis), 17 ("voiturette" - a mini-car) and 18 (8-seater estate). The Peugeot catalogue now includes some 15 models, ranging from 2- to 12-seaters, all equipped with a Peugeot engine and delivered with Michelin tube tyres (optional instead of solid tyres).

July 1898 sees Peugeot take part in the first Paris Motor Show.
Production at the Peugeot car plant from 1889 to 1900 hits the 1,298 mark, with 500 produced in 1900 alone.

Peugeot unveils the Type 36 in two versions: a three-seater spider and four-seater tonneau. The first Peugeot with a front bonnet and a new single-cylinder vertical engine, it also features a steering wheel with an inclined steering column instead of the handle bar, and a screw and nut system replacing the old chain transmission.

The first four-cylinder Peugeots are shown at the Paris Motor Show.

1902 - 1904
The Peugeot range is completely updated, based on the Type 36 model.

Automobiles Peugeot establishes its head office at Levallois. A Peugeot truck is awarded a national prize; a Peugeot 20 CV makes it to the top of La Turbie at a speed of 40 km per hour.

In 1903, the range is simplified and trimmed back to six Types: the 42, 43, 44 (four-cylinder engine), 50 (two-cylinder engine), 54 and 56 (single-cylinder engine).
The first Peugeot Baby (Type 69), fitted with a vertical single-cylinder engine, is presented in 1904. From 1904 until the outbreak of the First World War, Armand renews the entire range every year.

1905 - 1908
The first motor cars roll out of the Fils de Peugeot frères plant, the single-cylinder Lion-Peugeot followed by the two-cylinder V engine. While Armand is increasingly interested in developing more ambitious cars, the more popular are the small Lion-Peugeot cars.
Peugeot factories produce thirty tons of phonograph springs each month.

1907 sees the formation of Établissements Peugeot & Cie (rolling and tooling).

In 1908, aggregate output at Automobiles Peugeot and Les fils de Peugeot frères stands at 2,220 units.

1910 - 1913
Merger of Automobiles Peugeot and Les fils de Peugeot frères creating the Société anonyme des automobiles et cycles Peugeot, with Robert Peugeot at the helm. The two ranges would be developed side by side until the outbreak of World War I.

The second Peugeot Baby (Type BP1), designed by Ettore Bugatti, is unveiled in 1912. Very different from its 1904 sister, 3,095 Babies roll out of the production plant between 1912 and 1916.

Construction work starts at the Sochaux plant in 1913.

Output triples between 1911 and 1913. Peugeot's output of 9,338 units accounts for 50% of French production and 20% of the domestic market.

1914 - 1916
The workforce at Société anonyme des automobiles et cycles Peugeot now totals 2,500 and the company produces 10,000 cars and 80,000 bicycles annually at its plants.

Armand Peugeot, founder of the automobile division of the company, dies in February 1915.

1916 sees Robert Peugeot purchase new land at Sochaux-Montbéliard.

1914 - 1918

The Lille plant is in occupied France and is out of production, but the other Peugeot plants all participate in the war effort. They supply 1,000 motorbikes, 63,000 bicycles, 3,000 cars, 6,000 trucks, 1,400 tank engines, 10,000 aircraft engines and six million bombs and artillery shells.

Creation of Bulletin des Usines, the first company newspaper in France.

1919 - 1946 - The era of democracy

After World War I, Peugeot is intent on pursuing its industrial rise. The 1921 Quadrilette heralds the company's ambition to democratise the motor car and make it accessible to a wider public.

Innovation was the order of the day: the folding roof and aerodynamic forms pioneered by the company illustrate its spirit of innovation and ability to adapt to modern times.

1919 - 1920
The new Peugeot 10 CV (Type 163) makes its debut, followed by the Quadrilette (Type 161), an economical cycle car taking its inspiration from the pre-war Baby. In 1920 Peugeot introduces a six-cylinder car with a valve-less engine, the 25 CV (Type 156), the first private passenger car to be built at Sochaux.

Construction of a foundry at this site.

1923 - 1925
Brakes on four wheels are fitted across the range, as standard or an option.

Annual output doubles from 10,000 to 20,000 vehicles in the period 1923 to 1925. The 100,000th car rolls off the Peugeot production lines in 1925.

La société des automobiles et des cycles Peugeot splits into two: Automobiles Peugeot and Cycles Peugeot.

The Lumineuse car body is unveiled at the Paris Motor Show, the forerunner of the famous sunroof.  Peugeot would long remain the undisputed specialist for this product.

A car body factory opens at Sochaux.

Instigated by Jean-Pierre Peugeot, the Sochaux-Montbéliard site starts mass production with concentration of the means of production.

Peugeot produces its first Diesel engines marking the beginning of an era of specialisation in this technology for the Lille plant (CLM, Compagnie Lilloise de Moteurs). These engines are sold to power heavy goods vehicles, agricultural machinery and heavy plant.

The 6 CV 201 is unveiled, the first car to use the new Peugeot numbering system of three digits with a zero in the middle. It would also be the first mass-produced car in the world to feature independent front wheels (1931). The huge success of the 201 enabled Peugeot to weather the economic collapse of the 1930s.

1932 - 1933
1932 sees the launch of the 301. The world slump catches up with Peugeot and this turns out to be a most difficult year for the company. Output declines from 43,000 units in 1930 to 28,000 in 1932 but climbed back to 36,000 again in 1933 with production of 201 and 301.

In 1933, Peugeot's aerodynamic shape is extended across its range: rounded headlights, slightly sloping grill and low, sweeping wings.

301 models are given an aerodynamic shape with a lengthened rear profile (reminiscent of a dress train).

Peugeot launches its first range of electrical tools.

Launch of the luxury, six-cylinder 601, and a world first produced in collaboration with the designer Paulin and the coachbuilder Pourtout: the Éclipse, a car with a folding roof (patented by G. Paulin) and built on a 401 chassis. The idea would be taken up later by both Ford and Mercedes-Benz, before being redesigned by Peugeot to suit the thoroughly modern tastes of the late 1990s with the 20 Yin 1998.

The 401 is unveiled and Peugeot adopts the beavertail body across its range.

1935 - 1938
The 402 is Peugeot's first truly aerodynamic car body to be mass produced; it is known as the "Sochaux Rocket". A semi-automatic version with an electro-mechanical Cotal gearbox was produced in 1938, followed by a Diesel version in 1939.

Total annual output reaches 50,000 units in 1938, accounting for one quarter of French domestic output. At this point, 1,300 people are employed at Sochaux.

1939 - 1945
1939 and production at Sochaux is temporarily transferred to Bordeaux as the country gears up for war. The Sochaux plants are occupied by the Germans in 1940 and bombarded by the Royal Air Force in 1943. Sabotage teams are formed and a number of directors, managers and workers who supported the Resistance are deported to Germany. Liberated in 1944, Sochaux is left pillaged and destroyed by the occupying Germans, and it proves a difficult task to re-prime the industrial machine.

1946 sees cars built once again at the plant: DMA commercial vehicles and the 202, the former basic model in the Peugeot range. 14,000 202s are built at Sochaux.

1948 - 1973 - The great recovery

Despite the destruction wrought by World War II, Peugeot starts to write a new chapter in its history and in 1948 produces an innovative monocoque-construction saloon car.

Stylistically and technically, the group continues its string of innovations.

Peugeot unveils the 203, its first post-war car and with it initiates the policy of a unique model to represent the brand. The 203's four-cylinder engine featured remarkable technology for a mass-produced model of the time: an Alpax hemispherical cylinder and V-shaped overhead valves with spark plugs in the central well. Structurally, it is the first monocoque car body built by Peugeot. It would also go on to mark up another first for the automaker as production exceeds 500,000 (with some 700,000 203s produced from 1948 to 1960).

1955 - 1956
Launch of the 403, the first Peugeot with a curved windscreen, the fruit of its collaboration with the Italian coach builder, Battista Farina, to become Pininfarina.

The assets of the Société des Automobiles Peugeot and of Indénor (Diesel engines) are combined within the Société des Automobiles Peugeot, whose aim is now to manage the production and sale of the cars produced in its plants.

The 204 makes its debut in 1965 and with it Peugeot revolutionises the market, inventing the average small car and adding a transverse mounted engine and front-wheel drive to the company's range of equipment.

In 1966, Peugeot and Renault sign an agreement to form the Association Peugeot-Renault and create joint subsidiaries, including the Française de mécanique for the manufacture of engines for both partners.

1967 - 1970

In 1967, Peugeot introduces a Diesel version of its 204 with the smallest Diesel engine in the world, a 1,200 cm3 engine. 1968 sees the addition of a luxury saloon to the range, the 504, named car of the year in 1969, the same year the company launched the 304 and 504 coupés and cabriolets.

Peugeot is now ranked the second largest French manufacturer of private cars. In 1970, its annual output tops 500,000 units.

1971 - 1973

1971 and Volvo joins the Association Peugeot-Renault to engineer a V8 engine for the three companies. The engine they produce is actually a V6, known as the V6 PRV.

Its sporting exploits have not only won Peugeot wonderful trophies, but has also ensured that its cars convey an unparalleled image of reliability.

1894 - 1909
In 1894, during a "horseless carriage race" between Paris and Rouen, Peugeot and Panhard tie for first place.

In the first race against the clock organised from Paris to Bordeaux and back in 1895, the Peugeot Type 7 is ranked 1st; three Peugeots are in the first four.
From 1907 to 1909, Peugeot Lion voiturettes notch up several victories, notably in the Targa Florio.

1913 - 1919

1913 sees Peugeot win the Automobile Club de France (ACF) Grand Prix, beating the speed records at Brooklands (170.88 km per hour), and score its first Indianapolis 500 triumph in a historic victory achieved with an avant-garde engine designed by the engineer Ernest Henry with input from the Peugeot team drivers: a four-cylinder engine with two overhead camshafts and 4 valves per cylinder. Peugeot would go on to win three times at Indianapolis, in 1913, 1916 and 1919.

Peugeot finds itself on the winner's podium in the 1925 Targa Florio with a valveless-engine Peugeot, while in 1932, the 201 pulls off a double in its class at the Monte Carlo Rally and the 402 Darl'mat sweeps victory in the 1938 Le Mans 24 Hours (2-l category), which is regarded as the toughest endurance test in the world.


Peugeot snatches its first victory in the East African Safari with Nowicki and Cliff behind the wheel of a 404, a feat it goes on to repeat three years in a row, in 1966, 1967 and 1968. The 504 then roars onto the African Rally circuits, winning the Bandama in 1974 and pulling off a triple in 1975 with victory in the Safari, Bandama and Tour du Maroc, followed by a double in 1978 with the Safari and Bandama.

1985 – 1990.

In 1985 and again in 1986, Peugeot is World Rally Champion with a 205 Turbo 16.

Starting in 1987, Peugeot turns its attention to Rally Raids with immediate success in the highly-coveted Paris-Dakar rally: its team is victorious with the 205 T16 in 1987 and 1988, followed by two more winning years in 1989 and 1990, this time with the 405 T16!

In 1988 and 1989, the 405 T16 powers to victory at Pike’s Peak (Colorado).

1991 – 1993

1991 sees the first victory for the Peugeot 905 at Suzuka, followed by wins at Magny-Cours and in Mexico.

In 1992, the 905 has a brilliant season as it notches up a string of successes: Silverstone, Le Mans 24 Hours, the toughest race of its kind in the world, Donington, Suzuka and Magny-Cours.

Peugeot sweeps the WRC world championship.

In 1993, the Peugeot 905 Évolution once again storms to victory in Le Mans 24 Hours, monopolising first, second and third places! 

In 1994, the 406 is crowned French Grand Tourism Champion and Peugeot makes its F1 debut in partnership with McLaren (7 podiums), and then with Jordan the following year.

In 1995, the 306 Maxi makes Peugeot the French Rally champion in the 2-litre class in 1996, while the 406 is crowned Super Tourenwagen champion in Germany the following year.

In 1998, Jacques Calvet and the Prost Grand Prix team sign a partnership agreement to take part in the Formula 1 world championship. Peugeot undertakes to provide the V10 engine for the next three years.

1999 – 2002

206 WRC reigns as undisputed king!

1999 sees victories in the Tour de Corse and the San Remo Rally.

In 2000, victory beckons once again, this time with wins in the Swedish Rally, followed by 2nd place in the Portuguese and Argentine Rallies and, to top off a great year, Peugeot is crowned WRC World Champion!

2001 sees Peugeot snatch the World Rally Champion title a second time.

In 2002 comes the third successive WRC title, with seven doubles and one triple in the 11 legs of the championship!


Peugeot unveils its new weapon for the World Rally Championship: the 307 WRC, based on the 307 CC and due to take over on the track from its predecessor, the 206 WRC.

In 2004, Peugeot racks up a world first for motor sport with the launch of the Peugeot RC Diester Cup, a single-model event for small saloon cars powered by a central diester engine (a clean fuel derived from vegetable oils).

In 2009, the Peugeot Sport team roars to a stunning victory in the 908 HDi FAP winning a historic double at Le Mans.

Concept cars:  The future is written today


With continuing innovation as a core value, Peugeot has always been driven by a constant quest for technical and aesthetic innovations to improve the motor car and the motoring experience.

The 402 Andreau from 1936, the Peugeot Griffe to 1976, followed later by the 607 Féline, Moonster, 4002, 407 Elixir, 407 Silhouette … to name but a few of the innovative designs that form the stuff of dreams for the motoring enthusiast and the stuff of progress for the Lion.

While concept cars have played a regular part in Peugeot's history (the 402 Andreau dates back to 1936), at the close of the 20th Century the carmaker unleashed a whole series of these vehicles, a testament to the company's technical expertise and dynamic performance.

1984 - 1988

In 1984, Peugeot unveils the Quasar. A true exercise in style with the body sweeping low to the front, this two-seater coupé takes its inspiration from science fiction and futuristic space travel. It is powered by a bi-turbo 4-cylinder engine.

In 1988, testimony to its enduring vitality, Peugeot reveals the Oxia concept car. Another study in style, it would become a high-performance sports car.

1994 - 1996:

Peugeot reveals 2 electric concept cars during this period: iOn, introduced in 1994, is a small urban electric MPV. Its four wheels are placed at the four corners of the chassis, making it the ideal silent and clean city runabout.

The 1995 Tulip (individual and public urban transport) represents a revolution in transport policy: a car-sharing scheme with two-seater electric cars available at various points in the city.

In 1996, Peugeot introduces its Asphalte concept, a roadster designed with a motorbike rear, and Touareg, a quiet 4x4 with excellent driveability. This electric concept car has a small electric generator that charges the batteries with a small reserve of petrol to increase the car's autonomy. 

1998 - 2000

Peugeot unveils the 20 Yconcept car at the Geneva Motor Show. Its hinged folding roof takes up an idea originally pioneered by Peugeot in 1934 and provides a solution to a technical challenge for a small car: how to fold a roof into the boot of a coupé. A technical tour de force which would become reality on the 206 CC.

2000 sees Peugeot unveil two concept cars at the Geneva Motor Show: the 607 Féline and 607 Paladine.


Combining emotion with excellence, and the joy of the drive with respect for the environment, Peugeot brings out two new concept cars in this period: SR1 and BB1, forerunners of the car of the future pointing the way for design trends into the next decade.

Peugeot explores and re-interprets Grand Tourers with this SR1 dream car.

Elegant, streamlined, dynamic, and stylish with controlled power supplied by HYbrid4 technology, SR1 is concentrated emotion par excellence. Its aesthetic codes signal the future design directions for Peugeot cars and renew the carmaker's unique design identity.

BB1, "the modern urban car", draws on two worlds - motorbikes and cars - to bring us Peugeot's imagined future approach to getting around in the city. Its architecture is revolutionary and it sits on a tubular chassis designed with the team at Peugeot Scooters. Extremely compact (2.5 m), the all-electric BB1 will nimbly and quickly bring around four people (with zero C02 emissions). It also features some of the latest interactive and connective technologies. The future is written today.

Two-wheel locomotion: From velocipede to electric scooter


Dating back to 1882 with the launch of the famous Grand Bi, the penny-farthing, Peugeot's involvement in bicycle manufacture has endured to the present day. The company's fertile imagination gave birth to many remarkable models: the tandem, three-wheeler, quintuplet, racing bikes, motorbikes, mopeds and scooters.

1885 - 1904

In 1885, Peugeot manufactures its first bicycle range: a simple bicycle, a three-wheeler and a Kangaroo chain bicycle (a Grand Bi fitted with a double chain drive system with pinion and chain on the front wheel). In 1886, the company opens a dedicated bicycle production factory at Beaulieu. Production in the period 1886 - 1890 soars from 150 to 8,000 units.  

The first motorised three-wheelers are launched in 1898. These first models are equipped with a Dion engine, later replaced by a Peugeot engine in 1900.

In 1899, Peugeot builds its famous "Captain Gérard" folding bicycle, which would form part of soldiers' kit in World War I. Its chainless transmission innovation also dates to this period with the introduction of acatene transmission.

The first motorbike with a Zedel or Peugeot engine goes on the market in 1901.

By 1904 all its motorbikes are driven by Peugeot engines. A Peugeot sets a flying-start one-kilometre record of 123.287 km per hour.

1930 - 1955:

In 1930, bicycle output at Beaulieu peaks at 162,000.

In 1934, the 500 cm3 motorbike, the 515, sets no fewer than three world records.

The company launches new 500, 350 and 175 cm3 motorbikes in 1936, together with a 100 cm3 lightweight motorcycle.

In 1939, the first motorised three-wheelers appear on the scene: these small commercial vehicles would enjoy huge success during the 1950s.

In 1945, a new range of 100 and 125 cm³ lightweight motorcycles is produced.

In 1954, Peugeot launches its scooter range and continues to produce this product until 1961.

In 1955, Cycles Peugeot now employs 3,500 people and Beaulieu turns out 220,000 cycles.

1956 – 1972

These are difficult years for the bicycle market. As Cycles Peugeot sees its revenue collapse by 50%, it tries to contain the crisis by diversifying and moving into automotive parts production to become a parts manufacturer.

1962 sees the launch of the streamlined BB 104 moped.

In 1972, Peugeot acquires the factory at Romilly-sur-Seine and in 1987 all of Cycles Peugeot's manufacturing activity is based here.


1983 sees a return to scooters for Peugeot with the launch of the 80 cm³ SC, which would later evolve into the ST and then the SX.

Peugeot is the leading French scooter manufacturer from 1989 to 1991.

Peugeot launches a new generation of scooters: the Fox in 1993, and Zénith, Buxy and Speedake in 1994.
In 1995, the 4x4 of the scooter world makes its appearance in the form of the new Squab.

After a year of trials, Peugeot Motocycles introduces the first electric scooter in 1996, the Scootelec.

The Noughties

2000 dawns and with it the new societal order. New behaviour patterns emerge as concern for the environment grows, as does peoples' interest in "nature" sports. Peugeot returns in force to the cycle market in an exclusive world partnership with Cycleurope, the leading European bicycle manufacturer.

The B1K, an avant-garde electric bicycle concept, provides a glimpse of the bike of the future.


In 2010, Peugeot responds to the renewed popularity of the bicycle with a new range, its "Collector's Edition", a limited series with four models in the range (racing, city, VTT and VTC).

With Peugeot Scooters, the brand also reaffirms its presence with a range of scooters from 50 to 500cm3 forming the most comprehensive selection on the market (45 scooters and mopeds).

The 1st brand to market electric scooters, Peugeot launches two new concepts in 2010: HYbrid3 Evolution (a hybrid three-wheel scooter) and E-vivacity, the perfect "eco-citizen" electric scooter. Heading into the 21st Century!

The Lion and its history

It is 1847, and brothers Jules and Emile Peugeot want their products to stand out from their competitors' and to ensure that their customers are aware of the quality of the steel used in the manufacturing process. They therefore decide to stamp the products with their own distinctive marques. To create their emblem, the brothers call “on the good taste of artist Justin Blazer, a silversmith and engraver established in the Montbéliard region”.  

They chose the Lion from amongst the trademarks he created to designate first-class quality. In 1850, the Lion appears on all saw blades, the firm's flagship product, to make the link between the qualities of the blade and those associated with the animal:

-         the toughness of the teeth, like the lion's

-         the flexibility of the blade, evoking the animal's supple spine

-         the speed of the cut, like a bounding lion

On foot of the law on trademark registration passed in France, Peugeot Frères registers its trademark on 2 November 1858: "the company's trademark representing a lion, with or without an arrow, to be used on its saw blades, laminated edge tools and others".

P 76 - 77

Over time, the Lion emblem would assume a number of different forms according to the products it was emblazoned on: tools, bicycles, motorbikes or Lion Peugeot cars. While Automobiles Peugeot would wait until 1933 to start using the emblem, the Lion would remain a constant from this point onwards, appearing on the bonnet as a motif or positioned in the centre of the radiator grille (in a number of graphic evolutions).  


To mark the bicentenary of the brand, the Peugeot Lion is changing again. In line with its new brand identity, Peugeot's designers have created a simpler and more dynamic logo with a new stance and a new sense of movement. Aesthetically, it now plays on the dual appearance of the metal, combining matte and shine, and breaks free from its blue background in a show of strength. 


On 20 November eighteen hundred and fifty-eight at 10 a.m. the following person did appear before me, Henri Beurnier, Court Clerk: Mister Emile Peugeot, manufacturer residing at Valentigney, who,  in accordance with the Law of 23 June, eighteen hundred and fifty-seven, registered 1) the imprint of the trademark representing a lion, with or without an arrow, which the establishment Peugeot Frères of Valentigney intends to stamp on its saw blades, laminated edge tools and others, so that the said registration may be included in the minutes of the court. 2) A second imprint of the aforementioned trademark to be sent by us to the Conservatoire Impérial des Arts and Métiers, in accordance with the law.

In witness thereof, this certificate is hereby issued, and having read the foregoing, the abovementioned party duly signs with myself, Court Clerk.

The Peugeot Adventure and Museum – Much more than just a museum, it's an adventure

In 1982, Pierre Peugeot, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of the PSA -Citroën Group, formed the Aventure Peugeot association, dedicated to gathering, collating and displaying to the public the historical heritage associated with the steel industry created by the Peugeot family and the developments it give birth to. Internationally, the museum acts as a forum for international collectors, for Peugeot Clubs, and all those who love the Lion brand.

Xavier Peugeot, another of Pierre Peugeot's sons, took over stewardship of the "Peugeot Adventure" in 2009, succeeding Thierry Peugeot, who held the position from 2003 to 2009.

In 1984, the foundations of a future museum are established to showcase the know-how and expertise of hundreds and thousands of people working over the past two centuries to create and produce the company's products bearing the Lion brand.

June 1988 marks the inauguration of the Musée of L’Aventure Peugeot at Sochaux, at the entrance to the group's largest production facility.

In 2000 and 2010: extension of the display areas and development of the museum's other visitors' facilities.

Boasting a display area extending over 6,000 m² the museum offers visitors a journey through time showing Peugeot products from 1810 to the present. Motor cars from 1891 to modern-day concept cars are displayed in period architectural and museographical environments. Two-wheelers are displayed in a village. In addition to the collection of vehicles, visitors can also see many other Peugeot products: coffee grinders, tools, sewing machines, wireless radios, aircraft engines, boat engines and objects and diverse and unusual as stainless steel dental crowns, firearms and the Peugimix, the first food processor. Restaurant facilities and the museum shop complete the experience making for an unforgettable experience. The museum has attracted in excess of 1,700,000 visitors.

Peugeot partnerships: Sport in the blood


Peugeot loves sport, and not just motor sport. It has also built up close sporting partnerships in the world of tennis, soccer (with its Sochaux team) and golf. 


One of its most emotional ties in the sporting world is certainly the partnership with the club founded by Jean-Pierre Peugeot in 1928, FC Sochaux Montbéliard, one of the first professional soccer clubs in France. Peugeot is the club’s sole shareholder. FCSM won two French championship titles, in 1935 and 1936 and won the Coupe de France in 1937.

In 1949, Yellow and Blues initiated a training programme focused on young talent with the “Lionceaux” (the Lion Cubs) and opened a youth training centre in 1974. Talent from this pool helped FCSM to re-enter the French First Division and battle their way into three Coupe de France finals (in 1959, 1967 and 1988) and a European semi-final in 1981.

2000 saw the club return to glory, with a renovated Bonal Stadium and a new training centre. FCSM carried off three national cups (the French Coupe de la Ligue in 2004 and Coupe Gambardella in 2007) with several showings in European competitions. FCSM recently celebrated two anniversaries: its 80th birthday and 60 years of its youth training programme.

During the 1970s tennis seemed a natural field of expression for Peugeot, embodying as it does the values of dynamism and elegance.

Since Peugeot made its entrance to Roland-Garros Village in1984, the partners’ mutual trust has never faltered. Peugeot is now the tournament’s main partner, evident in the many Peugeot signs around the courts!

In 1989, Peugeot and the French Tennis Federation further strengthen their mutual commitment.

Peugeot becomes the official partner and official transport provider for the Roland-Garros French Open, responsible for organising and providing transport for players, VIPs and Roland-Garros tournament officials.

1989 also sees Peugeot celebrate its involvement in French tennis with the inception of a special series of Roland-Garros badged models: the 205 Roland-Garros saloon, 405 Roland-Garros estate, then the 205 cabriolet, 106 saloon, 306 saloon and cabriolet, the 806, 206 saloon and 206 CC, the 307 SW up to today’s 207 CC.

The first Roland-Garros scooter is launched in 2000, and the first bike in 2005.

Since Jean-Pierre Peugeot created the first corporate golf course in 1929, Peugeot has consistently increased its commitment to golf. The values of the game – beauty, natural surroundings and control - are all shared by Peugeot and facilitate its increasing involvement.

Its golfing sponsorships include 14 years as sponsor of the Peugeot French Open and support of the Lancôme Trophy. In August 2004 Automobiles Peugeot launched the Peugeot International Pro-Am a tournament for teams with one pro and two amateur players selected after a series of national qualifying rounds (or invited by Peugeot). The Pro-Am takes place over four days at three prestigious Paris golf courses.

The Peugeot RCZ Cup was launched in 2010.

This new international competition is open to all golfers and is based on an original competition concept: nine of the 18 greens in the course will have two flags (one easier than the other). Golfers play in doubles scramble competitions to qualify for the international grand finale at Saint Cloud in September 2010.

At Peugeot, we take customer relations to heart


We imagine and design cars. Ensuring the link with our customers who drive them is just as important to us. Peugeot is reinvesting in the city centre through its new retailing concept to offer products and services locally within easy reach of its customers: Peugeot City.

Text :

The first Peugeot City is inaugurated in rue of Châteaudun in Paris in 2010. Peugeot will reach out to a mobile, time-pressed urban customer base through this new city centre presence, along the lines of some of the larger supermarket chains.

The range at Peugeot City will be tightly focused with the emphasis on a maximum number of services: vehicle order and delivery, financing, mobility solutions, a tactile showroom for information and model customisation, convenient opening hours, etc.

The 150 m² Peugeot City is both a relay point for its Mu by Peugeot mobility service and an information point for Peugeot products, services and latest news.

In 2010 Peugeot City will be opened in a number of cities worldwide: Riyadh in Saudi Arabia and Warsaw in Poland.

The rue de Châteaudun Peugeot City is also the first site designed in accordance with the brand’s new corporate image.
