Peugeot started manufacturing horseless vehicle in 1891. These automobiles were propelled by two cylinder engines made by Panhard & Levassor under license of Daimler Company.
Only fourteen Type 5 were produced. The rear mounted 1,026 cc (72x 126 mm) vee-twin engine with hot tube ignition and spray carburettor had engine speed adjusted by a governor. The transmission to the rear wheels was by double cone clutch and a four speed and reverse gearbox with double chain drive. The steering is chain operated and controlled by a two handles steering wheel. The wheels are fitted with solid ruber tyres and steel spokes. The Peugeot Type 5 was 20 % lighter compared to the standard Type 3.

The most extraordinary feature is the hollow tube tubular chassis employed as radiator and connected with a water tank. There was no radiator. Heated water is pumped around inside the chassis tubes to disperse the heat. Top speed announced for 26 km/h (16 miles per hour)
