Peugeot celebrates 200 years

Peugeot was founded in 1810 and began coffee mills until 1830 when it introduced bicycles, moving to cars in 1882 and motorcycles in 1898 and becoming a separate company in 1926. During the Wall Street Crash of 1929 which made Europe and the USA into Great Depression in the 1930s, Peugeot sales went down, but the company still survived. In 1975 Peugeot bought Citroen, and Rootes Group in 1978.
