Blue Peugeot 301 Coupe from 1935 with four cylinders with 1465 cc, 35 HP. Max. speed: 100 km/h

The Peugeot 301 is a four-cylinder large family car produced by Peugeot between 1932 and 1936.

The original 301 can be seen either as a belated replacement for the Type 177, which had not been on sale since 1928, or as a return by Peugeot to that market segment after having left it for four years.

It was replaced in 1936 by the Peugeot 302.

Despite the changes in body design over the lifetime of the Peugeot 301, the configuration of the engine remained the same: a four-cylinder water-cooled unit of 1465 cc. A maximum output of 35 bhp (26 kW) at 4000 rpm was stated for the 301D, with passenger car maximum speeds of between 80 km/h (50 mph) and 100 km/h (62 mph) according to body type. For the much taller 301 van the maximum speed did not exceed 70 km/h (44 mph). An electric starter motor was included, although, as was normal at the time, provision for manual cranking remained.
