From the beginning, the Peugeot was developed as a small-bodied, popular car in France. In 1905, the first Bebe was completed, and 400 units of this epoch-making car were sold annually. Based on this concept, the automobile designed by Ettore Bugatti in 1913 was the Peugeot Bebe. Its unique styling, combined with its small engine, created a compact, open two-seater car, which won widespread acclaim for being a practical and enjoyable car. By 1916, more than 3,000 units were manufactured.
