Panhard is a French manufacturer of light tactical and military vehicles. Its current incarnation, now owned by Renault Trucks Defense, was formed by the acquisition of Panhard by Auverland in 2005. Panhard had been under Citroen ownership, then PSA (after the 1974 Peugeot Citroen merger), for 40 years. The combined company now uses the Panhard name; this was decided based on studies indicating that the Panhard name had better brand recognition worldwide than the Auverland name. Panhard once built civilian cars but ceased production of those in 1968. Many of its military products however end up on the civilian market via third sources and as military/government surplus vehicles. Panhard also built railbuses between the wars.
Emile Levassor In 1886, Emile Levassor and Rene Panhard set up the well-known motor company Panhard & Levassor, and in 1887 entered into negotiations with Edouard Sarazin, holder of the Daimler licence rights for France, on the manufacture of Daimler engines in France.
