For 25 years Automobiles Dangel has been on an upward path, whilst always remaining attentive to the needs of the market and its users.
After finding fame thanks to its participation in numerous 4X4 races and rallies, Dangel then specialised in all-terrain commercial vehicles. Today, thanks to the 5-seater 4x4 Partner, Berlingo and Combo, the general public is also rediscovering the company.
In the beginning, the company was an SME with a staff of about ten people, who developed innovative technical solutions that proved their worth on the ground. It owes its success to the extremely rigorous technical culture and the intuition of the founder, Henry Dangel.
Today, Automobiles Dangel employs 80 highly qualified people and distributes its products through the Peugeot, Citroën, Opel and Fiat dealer networks. The customer service department strives to address the current and emerging needs of its customers as precisely as it can. The DANGEL brand has become an undisputed leader on the cross-country utility vehicle market and is now making its reappearance on the passenger vehicle market.
After a time at BBS, he invented a concept to meet a new need he saw emerging on the market: the combination of on-road performance and off-road capability. He fitted a transmission of his own design on a production vehicle: the Peugeot 504... The Lion brand was convinced, and Automobiles Dangel was born in 1980!
