The award is named for Nicholas-Joseph Cugnot, a French Army officer who is generally acknowledged to have built the first self-propelled vehicle. His steam-powered fardier, built in 1769, was used as an artillery tractor; its likeness appears on the Society's emblem. The Cugnot Award was first presented in 1972. A Nicholas-Joseph Cugnot Award for books written in a language other than English was first presented in the year 2000.
