About Léon Bollée

Léon Bollée (1870–1913) was a French automobile manufacturer and inventor.

Life

Bollée's family were well known bellfounders and his father, Amédée Bollée (1844 – 1917), was a pioneer in the automobile industry who produced several steam cars. Both Léon Bollée and his older brother Amédée-Ernest-Marie (1867 – 1926) became automobile manufacturers.

Calculating machines

In 1887 Bollée began work on three calculating machines: the Direct Multiplier, the Calculating Board and the Arithmographe. Bollée's Multiplier was the first successful direct-multiplying calculator and it won a gold medal at the 1889 Paris Exposition. Three versions of the large multiplier and several smaller machines were developed by Bollée and the devices were patented in France, Belgium, Germany, the USA and Hungary.

Automobiles

Bollée and his father entered a steam car, La Nouvelle, in the 1895 Paris-Bordeaux-Paris race and Bollée went on to develop a gasoline-powered vehicle in 1895 which was entered in the 1896 Paris-Marseille-Paris race.

Tips and tricks for lowering car insurance costs in Great Britain

If you’re trying to finesse the lowest price of car insurance in Great Britain, there are a few things to watch out for. Car insurance marketing is clever. Its aim is to make you feel you’re getting the best deal but to maximise the insurer’s profit at the same time.

Get a ‘new’ quote from your existing insurer

Often applying to your existing insurer as a new customer produces a cheaper price than its renewal quote. Insurers put out more competitive prices to attract new customers so simply start again and you could be better off.
