Executive summary: Built the first Peugeot automobiles

Armand Peugeot's family had been in the manufacturing business for more than a century before he was born, making farm equipment, kitchenware, and hand tools. He expanded the business to include chain-driven bicycles and tricycles, introduced in 1882 with a Grand Bi penny-farthing, known for an extra-large front wheel and a tiny rear wheel. He designed the world's first steam-powered tricycle, which was displayed at the 1889 World's Fair in Paris. Peugeot's first four-wheel cars featured engines designed by Gottlieb Daimler. By 1892 Peugeot was building more than two dozen vehicles annually, and by Armand Peugeot's death in 1915 his firm was France's largest automaker.
