Peugeot is a French car manufacturer and a subsidiary of PSA Peugeot Citroen.
The family business that preceded the current Peugeot company was founded in 1810, and manufactured coffee mills and bicycles. On 20 November 1858, Emile Peugeot applied for the lion trademark. Armand Peugeot built the concern's first car, an unreliable steam tricycle, in collaboration with Leon Serpollet in 1889; this was followed in 1890 by an internal combustion car with a Panhard-Daimler engine. Due to family discord, Armand Peugeot in 1896 founded the Société des Automobiles Peugeot.
Peugeot has received many international awards for its vehicles including four European Car of the Year awards. Peugeot has an impressive history in motor sport for more than a century. Peugeot Sport won the World Rally Championship five times, the Intercontinental Le Mans Cuptwice (2010, 2011), surpassing Toyota and Audi, the World Endurance Championship twice (1992, 1993), and the Intercontinental Rally Challenge Championship three times. During the last year, Peugeot Sport has surpassed the record set in the ascent to Pikes Peak with thePeugeot 208 T16 driven by Sebastien Loeb, and got a triple victory of the Peugeot 208 GTi in its class at the Nürburgring 24 hours race. In 2015, Peugeot will return to the Dakar Rally after its four victories in the 1980s.
