Peugeot has introduced the eU01s, a 45 km/h (28 mph) electric bicycle, which will be officially unveiled at the Paris Motor Show and launched at the end of 2016.
Bridging the gap between traditional 25 km/h electric bicycles and scooters, the eU01s offers the rider an agile and rapid cross-town journey. The Peugeot eU01s comes under the moped category requiring insurance, registration and a helmet.
It’s BOSCH Performance Line electric motor combines with a 400 or 500 Wh lithium-ion battery to offer a range of 75 or 95 kilometers (47 or 59 miles), respectively. The eU01s has optimized safety and reliability thanks to its 180 mm hydraulic disk brakes, and its maintenance free belt transmission.
And to improve ride, the eU01s is compatible with the BOSCH Nyon system. This optionally available on-board computer with its 4.3-inch screen manages pedal assistance configuration and offers multiple functionality: 3-D navigation, sports coaching and smartphone connectivity.
Presented at the Paris Motor Show, the eU01s will be launched in December 2016 through the CYCLEUROPE network and selected PEUGEOT dealers.
Earlier this year, Peugeot also launched its e-Kick scooter and folding eF01 e-bike.
