WORLDKINGS - Worldkings News - Europe Records Institute (EURI) – Peugeot: World's oldest operating car brand

14-06-2020

(Worldkings.org) Peugeot is the world's oldest operating car brand.

Peugeot is a French automotive manufacturer, part of Groupe PSA. Peugeot first opened its doors as a family-run coffee mill company in 1810 and eventually began manufacturing bicycles in 1830, then salt, pepper, and coffee grinders in 1842.

 

Armand Peugeot was interested in automobile manufacturing from early on and began producing cars in 1882.

 

Peugeot’s first car was put out as a collaboration with Leon Serpollet in 1889, and it was a steam tricycle that was too unreliable for mass production. In 1890, they made a better internal combustion car with the help of a Panhard-Daimler engine.

Peugeot has won five European Car of the Year awards, two Semperit Irish Car of the Year awards, four Car of the Year Auto Europa awards, and nine Car of the Year awards in Spain.

Peugeot Sport has won five World Rally Championships, two Intercontinental Le Mans Cups, two World Endurance Championships, and three Intercontinental Rally Challenge Championships. It is now a subsidiary of Group PSA.
