PEUGEOT trucks (utilitaires)


PEUGEOT also built light-duty trucks.

While the cars were classified by a number with a "0" in the middle of three numbers like 201, 301, 401, 601, 202, 302, 402, 203, 403, 404, 504, 604 etc. the light-duty trucks and their emblems are showing at least one letter like 201 T, 301 T, MKD, SKD, Q3A, DMA etc.

In my collection are 14 different prewar PEUGEOT truck  emblems. The French are calling the light-duty truck:  Utilitaire. So please have a look at my PEUGEOT  utilitaire emblems:

While WWII the military needed vast amounts metals to produce weapons etc.
So PEUGEOT built the emblem in Bakelite,  the first synthetic material.
These war emblems are hard to find.

For more beautiful car emblems especially for more Peugeot emblems go to top right of this page and look for PEUGEOT  and for LION PEUGEOT emblems.

P.S. There are hundreds of books concerning the PEUGEOT car history. But not a single book is treating the history of the PEUGEOT light-trucks. If I´m wrong, don´t hesitate to inform me.
