Launched in September 1991, it was Peugeot's entry-level offering throughout its production life, and was initially sold only as a three-door hatchback, with a five-door hatchback joining the range early in 1992. For the first year of production, the 1.0 and 1.1 petrol engines came with a carburettor, but were replaced by fuel-injected engines from late 1992 as a result of EEC omissions regulations.
In January 1996, the Peugeot 106 also formed the basis for the near identical looks and size Citroën Saxo, and at this time the 106 received a facelift. This was as well as the addition of an 1.6 GTI model, as the new "top of the range" version. In January 2005, it was replaced by the Peugeot 107, which in turn was superseded by the Peugeot 108.
Marketed as having "fewer frills, more thrills", the Rallye version did not have alloy wheels, central locking or electrically-operated windows to keep the weight down to 825 kilograms, powered by a 1.3-litre petrol engine developing 100 bhp at 7,200rpm. It had a five-speed manual gearbox.
The vehicle could be competitive in racing, but also made a practical family car. The Rallye also got a facelift in 1996, sporting a larger 1.6-litre petrol engine developing 103 hp at 6,200rpm.
In 1995, Peugeot launched an electric powered version of the 106, called the 106 Electrique. This was offered in a number of European countries including France, Belgium, The Netherlands, Norway and the United Kingdom.
The electric powertrain was developed and built by French engineering company Heuliez. The car used Nickel-cadmium battery technology manufactured by Saft Groupe S.A., had a top speed of 56 mph (90 km/h) and had an official range of 100 km (62 mi).
Despite the high price of the vehicle, Peugeot anticipated demand for around 15,000–20,000 Peugeot 106 Electriques each year, with an expected total production run of 100,000 vehicles. In the end, only 6,400 Peugeot 106 électriques were sold between 1995 and 2003, most purchased by the French Administration.
It had all independent suspension with MacPherson struts at the front, and compact transverse torsion bars at the rear. Low-end models had areas of visible metal work on the doors and a generally more sparse interior. 1.0L and some early 1.1L cars were fitted with a 4 speed manual gearbox, with all other models having a 5 speed manual with an automatic gearbox as an option.
The 1.0 and 1.1 petrol engines featured a carburettor from the car's launch, but were replaced by fuel injection a year later as a result of EC regulations. The only bodystyle available from the launch was the three-door hatchback, with a five-door hatchback added in 1992.
