Peugeot is a French car company that also makes bikes, watches, coffee grinders, pepper mills, and other items. Founded in 1810, the company made its first car in 1889. This was actually a steam tricycle. In 1890, Armand Peugeot abandoned steam in favor of a car with four wheels and a gas-powered engine, the Type 2. In 1953, the company released the first Peugeot scooter, the S55. Peugeot scooters and mopeds are still known for their classic looks. Most Peugeot cars use a three-digit model number with a zero in the middle. The first to use this system was the Peugeot 201, which was introduced in 1929. The 404 Cabriolet, introduced in 1962, is a favorite of collectors. In 2011, Peugeot launched its e-HDi microhybrid technology, which shuts off the engine when it is not in use. It is included in the Peugeot 508, the 308, the 3008, the 5008, and other models. The Peugeot Museum is in Sochaux, France, the Peugeot family's hometown. You can rely on sellers on eBay to find a great deal on a new or used Peugeot, as well as any parts or accessories you may need.
