Peugeot iOn (for 106 Électrique)
The Peugeot 106 is a city car produced by French automaker Peugeot between 1991 and 2003. 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 emissions regulations.
In January 1996, the Peugeot 106 also formed the basis for the near identical looks and size Citroën Saxo.
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. There were pre- and post-facelift versions of the 106 Rallye known to enthusiasts as S1 and S2 models, with the latter having a 103bhp 1.6 litre engine instead of the high-revving Rallye-specific 1.3 100bhp engine fitted to pre-facelift cars  It had a five-speed manual gearbox. The vehicle could be competitive in racing, but also made a practical family car. All cars had steel wheels, and Rallye decals and seat coverings featuring a 3-colour flash, which again varied between early and late cars.
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 Électriques each year, with an expected total production run of 100,000 vehicles. In the end, only 6400 Peugeot 106 Électriques were sold between 1995 and 2003, most purchased by the French Administration.
