Peugeot’s History

The French automaker Peugeot’s history is more than a century old. It started production in late 19th century and since then the company has been producing award winning cars, luxury cars, sports cars and commercial vehicles. In 1975, Peugeot took over Citroen and the company came to be known as Peugeot Société Anonyme (PSA).

The company saw a major success in 1983 when it launched Peugeot 205 which remained the best seller for years in France and was very popular in other European states as well. Since 2000, the company has failed to progress the way it would have liked. However, it has resurged since 2015 and grown 4.6% with over 1.7 vehicles sold in 160 countries.
