Peugeot has simply launched its newest electrical bicycle mannequin, referred to as the Peugeot eC01 Crossover.
The corporate has made spectacular strides within the electrical bicycle market currently, with a half dozen crossover-style models launched late last year.
Now the Peugeot eC01 Crossover provides a brand new Bosch-powered step-through body to the listing.
Designed and manufactured in France, the bike incorporates a basic upright seating place to present riders a lofty vantage level of the highway forward.
The 57 mm (2.25″) huge Schwalbe Hurricane tires assist the bike clear obstacles higher than the slim tires usually discovered on dedicated urban-only e-bikes.
A entrance suspension fork ensures that the bike can sort out harder using than typical city e-bikes, whereas the inclusion of fenders and a rear rack present the utility that almost all e-bike commuters require.
The Peugeot eC01 Crossover sports activities a Bosch Efficiency CX mid-drive motor paired with a detachable 500 Wh battery hidden throughout the body. The corporate claims that the battery is ample for as much as 120 km (75 mi) of vary, when used within the lowest help stage.
The mid-drive motor is rated for 63 Nm of torque, and Peugeot paired a 10-speed Shimano Deore transmission to make sure riders have a variety of gears to use that torque to the bottom on varied inclines.
Shimano MT201 hydraulic disc brakes come customary to extend stopping energy whereas additionally decreasing upkeep.
The Peugeot eC01 Crossover e-bike is available now for a value of €3,199 incl. VAT, or roughly US$3,900).
I’m really fairly concerned with Peugeot’s e-bike lineup. I first stumbled upon the company’s e-bikes at the Paris Motor Show, the place they had been a aspect exhibit tucked away behind Peugeot’s “actual” automobiles.
For European-built electrical bicycles, the costs appear greater than honest. It prices way more to construct these e-bikes within the EU than in Taiwan, although the worth distinction is generally bigger than this.
The specs aren’t on the stage of some other high-end e-bikes, however that’s okay for many riders simply searching for a reliable metropolis e-bike constructed powerful sufficient for the occasional curb hop or “whoops I didn’t notice there have been a pair stairs right here” conditions.
Subsequent time I’m in Paris I’m going to wish to discover a technique to get on one in all these e-bikes.
