Chronology
Successor Peugeot 107

The Peugeot 106 is a supermini produced by French automaker Peugeot from 1991 to 2004, one of the longest-running production cars ever made in Europe.[1] It replaced the Peugeot 104 as Peugeot's entry-level offering. In 2005, it was replaced by the Peugeot 107.

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 which saw all engines get fuel injection and equipment levels raised.

Rallye version[edit]

Marketed as having "fewer frills, more thrills", the Rallye verion did not have alloy wheels, central locking or electrically-operated windows to keep the weight down to 8,995 pounds, powered by a 1.3-litre petrol engine developing 100bhp at 7,200rpm. It had a five-speed manual gearbox. The vehicle could be competitive in racing, but also made a practical family car.[2] After 1996 it was renamed GTi.

Electric version[edit]

An electric Peugeot 106

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.

Equipment[edit]

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. No Phase I cars had power steering in RHD markets. As with its sister car the Citroen Saxo, air-conditioning was never an option on RHD 106s.

The only bodystyle available from the launch was the three-door hatchback, with a five-door hatchback added in 1992.
