92 HAUTS-DE-SEINE. SURESNES. Bon de Jouissance. brown. # 180000. No 12195. Saurer was a Swiss carmaker, building at his Arbon plant from 1897 to 1914. The first Saurer was a 6hp single-cylinder opposed-piston engine mounted at the rear. It had a 4-seater body and tiller steering, replaced by a wheel in 1898. Saurer cars were built at Neuilly, near Paris, especially for colonial use. Larger and better Saurers, mostly tourers and limousines, were built in small numbers up to 1914. Commercial vehicle production began in 1903, and soon became so important that private car production was dropped. Saurer was for many years the largest Swiss builder of commercial vehicles. The French truck-manufacturing subsidiary started in 1917, from factories in Suresnes and Lyon. Vignette of the company logo.
