Peugeot 206 production terminated (EU)

Peugeot will see the production of the 206 end next year in Europe after 13 of service.

EU legislation will ultimately axe it, but it’s likely to continue to be made in Iran, South America and China.

It was first introduced in 1998 as a late replacement for the 205 which Peugeot had originally tried to avoid refreshing as they hoped the 106 and 306 models would fill the market suitably.

The 206 went on to become Peugeot’s best selling car, exceeding 5m units in 2005 before its replacement – the 207 – was introduced in 2006. The only other Peugeot to sell that amount was the 205, although this took significantly longer than the 8 years the 206 took to attain that milestone.
