    Altough a lot of people think so, the UK never built the Peugeot 205.
    However they did build the following Peugeots in Ryton: 309, 405, 306 and 206.
    Furthermore all the 206 RC’s/206 GTI 180s and 206 SWs were built in the UK!

    Do you know if the ‘Austin Morris 1100′ figures would include the MG, Vanden Plas, Riley and Wolseley variants? Not that it would make a huge difference, for one thing the Riley and Wolseley ones weren’t introduced until September 1965. Interesting that the car’s best year comes before the larger-engined 1300s were available.

    These outstanding salesfigures of the P 206 and 306 are partly due to the loyalty of the Brits towards foreign makes actually BUILDING their cars in the UK.

    In the defunct Talbot factories Peugeot manufactured the 205, 206 and, if I am correct, a slice of the 306 production.

    Is it a coincidence Peugeot UK sales dropped considerably the moment PSA decided to halt production in Britain??
