Vehicle Manufacturer: Peugeot (PSA Peugeot Citroen)
Established: 11/20/1858
Country of Origin: France

Peugeot is a major French car brand, part of PSA Peugeot Citroën, the second largest carmaker based in Europe.

The family business that precedes the current Peugeot company was founded in 1810. On 20 November 1858, Emile Peugeot applied for the lion trademark. The company produced its first automobile in 1891. Due to family discord, Armand Peugeot in 1896 founded the Société des Automobiles Peugeot.

Peugeot's roots go back to 19th-century coffee mill and bicycle manufacturing. The Peugeot company and family is originally from Sochaux, France. Peugeot retains a large manufacturing plant and Peugeot Museum there. It also sponsors the Sochaux football club, founded in 1928 by a member of the Peugeot family.

Peugeot uses the PSA Group diagnostic platform but with differing software from Citroen.

Peugeot Planet is the main interface software using a Lexia 3 interface. Some vehicles based on Fiat platforms also require a CAN bus module to adapt them to the Lexia interface.
