Peugeot 306 – 18.8% lost in a year

The 306 was incredibly popular back in the 1990s, with very nearly 400,000 registered at the peak of its popularity. Sales stopped in 2002 and numbers slowly tailed off – by the end of 2013 there were just under 100,000 left, but that dropped by a further 18,460 over the course of 2014.
