About Peugeot Philippines
History & development
Peugeot is one of the biggest French carmakers in Europe since 1820. It is under Groupe PSA who also manages other car brands such as Opel, Citroen, Vauxhall, and DS. The family enterprise headed by Armand Peugeot was founded in 1810 and initially focused on producing coffee mills and bicycles.
Gottlieb Damier, the inventor of high-speed liquid petroleum-powered engines, had a meeting with the company to introduce the idea of building automobiles. In 1889, they released a steam-powered, three-wheeled car but only 4 were launched as it was bulky.
In 1890, they produced a four-wheeled vehicle that runs using a gas-fuelled engine. It was a success as 300 were built by 1899. The company is notable as the first manufacturer to use rubber tires in their vehicles.
Through the years, Peugeot became one of the most consistent providers of compact, sporty cars that are a breeze to drive. Some of their notable models include:
- The Peugeot 205 GTI is considered one of the best small hatchbacks of all time due to its agile and lightweight body;
- The Peugeot 306 Rallye that utilized an outstanding chassis and a 2-liter engine;
- The limited-edition Peugeot 208 GTI Sport known for its rigid chassis, lessened gear ratios, increased horsepower and torque;
- The Peugeot 106 Rallye built with a hard chassis, 1.3-liter engine, and fun styling.
