106 celebrates 30th anniversary in Sochaux

The Peugeot 106 will celebrate its 30th anniversary in September 2021. This means that the model will be a youngtimer, which qualifies as a collector’s car. Nearly 2,800,000 cars were produced between 1992 and the end of sales in 2003. The Peugeot 106 was mainly built in Mulhouse, but when the car was most popular, the factories in Sochaux and Aulnay-sous-bois also came on board. Peugeot was a forerunner in the field of electric driving with the first VLV (electric city car) presented in 1941. The Peugeot 106 was the second and held the world record for electric car sales until 2010. Almost 3,550 cars of the electric version were sold. To celebrate three decades of Peugeot 106, the Peugeot Aventure Museum in Sochaux is dedicating an exhibition to it until the end of 2021. Eight models will be on display during the anniversary: ​​the 1994 ‘106 Rallye’ (Italian version), the 1992 ‘106 XSI’, the 1995 ‘106 Signature’, the 1997 ‘106 S16’, the 106 ‘Enfant Terrible’ from 2002, the ‘106 Electric’ from 1996, the ‘106 Maxi’ from 1997 and a prototype ‘106 Cabriolet’ from 1992.

The museum’s teams are also preparing a large gathering of Peugeot 106s, with the 106 Team Rally Club and the 106 S16 Club. This event will take place on Saturday September 11, 2021. All Peugeot 106 owners are welcome. For more information: www.museepeugeot.com

Na mijn opleiding aan de Frederik Muller Academie ben ik jaren werkzaam geweest voor verschillende uitgeverijen zoals Elsevier en NRC Handelsblad. Daarvoor heb ik zelfstandig en met heel veel plezier het kwartaaltijdschrift Peugeot Expo Magazine uitgegeven. In mijn vrije tijd rijd ik graag in een Peugeot 403, ik Twitter graag over auto's en ik houd van hardlopen. Ik vind het leuk om mensen met elkaar te verbinden.
