Peugeot takes the cake for having a colorful history. It was set up in 1810 as an industrial manufacturer that produced band saws, coffee grinders, umbrella frames, and similar products. Soon, it changed courses drastically and decided to focus on motor products. Its first car was introduced in 1989, becoming one of the oldest car manufacturers worldwide. Today, its product line has expanded to include two-wheelers and a variety of vehicles.
