Peugeot is a French automotive manufacturer, part of Groupe PSA.

The family business that preceded the current Peugeot company was founded in 1810, and manufactured coffee mills and bicycles.

On 20 November 1858, Émile Peugeot applied for the lion trademark. Armand Peugeot built the company's first car, an unreliable steam tricycle, in collaboration with Léon Serpollet in 1889; this was followed in 1890 by an internal combustion car with a Panhard-Daimler engine.

Due to family discord, Armand Peugeot founded the Société des Automobiles Peugeot, in 1896.

The Peugeot company and family are originally from Sochaux, France. Peugeot retains a large manufacturing plant and Peugeot museum there. In February 2014, the shareholders agreed to a recapitalisation plan, in which Dongfeng Motors and the French government each bought a 14% stake in the company
