Peugeot continued to shine in the manufacture of kitchen utensils, bicycles and cars. Peugeot democratised the car in the early 20th century and survived the 1929 crash.

In 1931, an initial range of mechanical tools with electric motor was born.

During World War II, several factories were occupied or bombed. Peugeot recovered with the production of utility vehicles and the 202. In the 1950s, Peugeot built more than 100,000 vehicles per year. In 1972, more than two million 404 cars were manufactured. Peugeot absorbed 90% of the Citroën brand in 1974 with the creation of the PSA Peugeot-Citroën holding company. In 1983, the 205 and the 205 GTI made Peugeot a reference. Over the following years, Peugeot increasingly excelled in car manufacturing on which the current success of the brand is still based.

The brand’s tool production continued through to 1989 when it was suspended. It resumed in 2009 with the production of stationary power tools.
