The 30th Peugeot 106 Celebration As a Legendary Car

Peugeot 106 presents an electric version produced in the 90s.

DAPURPACU – It’s been 30 years since the existence of the Peugeot 106 and is ready to be included in the category of ‘youngtimer’ collector cars (young classic cars). Currently 106 are ready to enter a new chapter.

Peugeot 106 was first launched on September 12, 1991, and at that time the car that filled the small city car segment was claimed to be quite dominant in the European market. It even controls a third of the small city car category.

In France alone, the Peugeot 106 has been absorbed by up to 40 percent of consumers. The car became Peugeot’s answer to meet the needs and became a trend at that time.

When first produced, this car comes with 3 doors. Then in 1992 the version changed to 5 doors. The next generation was launched which survived and continued to be marketed in 2003.

However, there is something special about the Peugeot 106 on offer. It turns out that this car offers an electric version and has been marketed since the mid-90s. Sales of this type are able to touch the figure of 3,500 units worldwide.

For information, most of 106 Electric’s customers are used as the company’s fleet. This gives Peugeot the world record holder for the most electric car sales until 2010.

The Peugeot 106 Electric is powered by a Nickel-cadium battery that produces 127 Nm of torque and 27 hp. The mileage reaches 80 km, where for charging from empty to full it takes 6 hours.

The models include the 106 Italian Rallye (1994), 106 XSI (1992), 106 Signature (1995), 106 S16 (1997), 106 Efant Terrible (2002), 106 Maxi (1997), 106 Electric (1996), and a prototype, the 106 Cabriolet (1992).
